Wedding cakes were originally designed to bring good luck to the bride and groom and everyone attending the event.
Nowadays, its a centerpiece and isn't always served to the guests. They come in all shapes and sizes too.
When you choose the type of cake you want, it reflects your taste and style.
There are so many to choose from. Such as classy elegance, whimsical or basic traditional.
White cake is the most popular choice because you can add different flavors between the layers.
Years ago, people would have fruit cake at their wedding. Many still do. How many people really eat fruit cake?
It doesn't matter what flavor of cake you have, whether its white, chocolate or something else, it can still be decorated beautifully.
Fondant as the frosting has become very popular for cakes. Different shapes can be created so that the cake comes out looking like a masterpiece.
Back in the 1950s, cake toppers became very popular. They would represent a couple getting married.
In modern times, it has become more common to add a topper that represents a hobby. It could be a couple doing some sport together. Or, it could be just flowers.
We can't forget to mention the superstitions around the cake. There's the belief that if a guest places a piece of the cake under her pillow, she will dream about the man she will marry.
Another superstition is where the single girls would pull a ribbon from the bottom of the cake. If the young lady got the ribbon with a ring on it, she is supposed to be the next one to get married.
In addition to fitting your personality, the cake should also go with your location.
Are you getting married in a resort where an elegant cake fits in or on a beach where everyone will be barefoot and eating off paper plates?
