Why a Wedding Cake?

Beginning in early Roman times, the cake has been a special part of the wedding celebration. A thin loaf was broken over the bride's head at the close of the ceremony to symbolize fertility.  The wheat from which it was made, symbolized fertility and the guests eagerly picked up the crumbs as good luck charms.  During the Middle Ages, it became traditional for the couple to kiss over a small cluster of cakes.  Later, a clever baker decided to amass all these small cakes together, covering them with frosting.  Thus, the modern tiered cake was born.  Also visit our section on "Choosing your Wedding Cake."

 

The Groom's Cake

The groom's cake is a smaller cake that is served at the wedding  reception.
Young women (unmarried) would take a piece of the groom's  cake home to place under their pillows and the old wive's tale says "they  will marry whomever they dream of that night."
