Sweet Wedding Cake Traditions
Something Sweet To Share
Wedding cake, wedding cupcakes, wedding pops, chocolate and sweets. These are today’s trend in wedding cake.
In the days of the Roman empire, wedding cakes were baked of wheat or barley. At the reception, they were traditionally broken over the head of the new Bride by the Groom as a symbol of her fertility. Guests would then scramble for pieces of the cake, and take them home for good luck. It later became a tradition to place many small cakes on top of each other as high as possible. The newlyweds would then try to exchange a kiss over the top of the tower of cakes without knocking them down. It was during the reign of King Charles II of England, that icing was added.
The overall theme has become to share something sweet to mark the sweetness in your marriage. This sweet can be anything. You could share a chocolate truffle a favorite candy. This opens a world of possibilities over an expensive wedding cake. Traditions change and shift make your uniquely yours.
