What is a wedding cake?
A wedding cake, typically a white cake served in tiers is a cake traditionally served at some part of the wedding reception. It’s typically ceremonially sliced into by the bride and groom together and served to guests either on the day or at a later date and symbolises good fortune. Typically in the UK the wedding cake will be a dense fruit cake rich with sugar to help it stand the test of time – in some parts the tradition is that the couple save a slice of the top tier of the cake to eat on the first anniversary of the marriage.
What’s the history of wedding cakes?
In this country tall tiered white wedding cakes are as synonymous with weddings as therings or the best man’s speech, however not many people now how and why the tradition of the wedding cake started. We have the ancient Romans to thank for the modern day wedding cake – in Roman wedding ceremonies a barley cake was broken over the head of the bride for fertility and fortune – the newly married couple would typically pick up and eatsome of the crumbs, followed by the guests. This tradition followed the Romans to the UK and over time the bread-cake was replaced with piles of spiced-buns, over which the newly married couple had to kiss without knocking over the pile, again, a symbol of good-luck for the marriage. Over time this developed to pies, then primitive wedding cakes and finally the modern, fruit filled cakes we know and love today.Nowadays this tradition has been pushed on even further and wedding parties have been known to serve donuts, cookies, bagels and even burgers.. yep, burgers – stacked in tiers ona cake stand as a nod to their traditional routes. Our favourite take on the traditional tiered cake though has to be a wedding cake made entirely of cheese!!
