Are you getting married anytime soon? Well, on top of all the things on your to-do list before the wedding, you definitely can’t forget to order a wedding cake. There is no doubt that the pre-wedding jitters are real, and so you need all the help you can get. Here are a few things you must know before ordering your wedding cake.
Origin of the Wedding Cake
To start, wedding cakes were first introduced in ancient Rome. They weren’t anything like the kind of cakes you see today; they were something more like barley bread. The wedding ceremony at that time concluded with the groom breaking a loaf of bread over his wife’s head…crazy, right? Basically this meant that the woman’s chastity has ended and now she has entered a new era of life as a wife.
Medieval England was also introduced to the idea of the wedding cake where the bride and groom would kiss under a tower made of stacks of cake.
Today however, it’s more of a theme approach where the brides gets to choose from a sea of options, such as the Persian cake or the 3-tier cake.
Types of Trendy Wedding Cakes
If you’re a trendsetter yourself, then finding a great wedding cake trend that suits your décor and maybe even your wedding dress can be a smart way to spice things up. Here are some of the current best world-wide trending wedding cakes:
