The sharing of prosperity, generosity and love for the wedding guests and the bride and groom.
One of my fondest memories of my wedding was sharing a piece wedding cake with my husband, Troy. Our wedding cake was simple, beautiful and delicious. It was baked at a local bakery with a reputation for beautiful wedding cakes that taste great. We decided to skip the traditional and have a layer of chocolate cake and two layers of white cake. It was a good choice and none went to waste.
There was a time when a sweet cake would have been too expensive for most. Sugar was an expensive ingredient, so only the rich could afford a wedding cake. Over time the cost of sugar came down, making having a wedding cake more affordable. The wedding cake came to symbolize the sharing of prosperity, generosity and love for the wedding guests and the bride and groom.
How to choose a Wedding cake
There are a lot of things to consider when choosing your wedding cake.Remember beautiful does not have to mean dry and inedible. Many bakeries make cakes that taste as good as they look. White cake is no longer the rule many brides are choosing delicious rich flavors like chocolate with chocolate mousse, yellow butter cake topped with light, creamy butter cream frosting topped with seasonal berries. Ask around to find a bakery with a good reputation. Make a list of questions to ask the baker such as; Do you deliver to the reception site? Is the cake made from scratch or from a mix? What cake flavors or filling are available?
I hope you find the cake of your dreams… and remember you can have your cake and eat it too!
