Wedding Cake Wednesday is here!
This beautiful cake was created by Le Bakery in Biloxi, Mississppi for Ashley + Josh’s wedding day.
A little history behind the wedding cake that you may not realize is this that I found on Wikipedia!
“The cutting of the cake is a task full of symbolism. The cake was originally intended to be distributed among the guests by only the bride because consuming the cake would ensure fertility. As weddings grew and the number of guests increased this task became a joint venture, the groom needed to help cut the growing cake and distribute it among their guests. Layers of cakes began to pile up and the icing would need to support the weight of the cake making is very difficult for one person to cut. The groom would assist the bride in this process. Once this tradition began the bride and groom would share a piece of cake before distributing it to the guests to symbolize their union and their promise to forever provide for each other. “
How neat, right!? Wedding cakes are now used only for a centerpiece and of course a yummy treat for guests, but I love history so reading about old traditions like this is very interesting to me.
What is your favorite wedding tradition?!
Penny in the shoe? Something old, something borrowed, something blue? The garter and bouquet toss?
