Wedding Fact Friday

Multiple Facts about Wedding Cakes
The wedding cake has always played an important part in the wedding.
1. Ancient Romans broke a cake over the bride's head to symbolize fertility or abundance.
2. Many other cultures dropped wheat, flour, or cake on the bride's head, and then ate the crumbs for good luck.
3. The early British baked baskets of dry crackers, and every guest took one home after the wedding.
4. In medieval times, guests brought small cakes and piled them on a table. The bride and groom then attempted to kiss over the cakes.
5. Eventually, a young baker decided to put all the cakes together and cover them with frosting; thus, the tiered wedding cake was born.
