The wedding cake is more than a centerpiece at a wedding buffet. The traditional meaning of the cake cutting ceremony shows the groom’s promise to provide for his family and the woman’s promise to support him. The cake represents the couple’s prosperity in their married life so it is something that any wedding cannot do without.
The look of the wedding cake has evolved through time. From the old fashioned three layered all white marshmallow icing cake designed with candy flowers, the wedding cake today can appear in any color or shape the couple requests it to be. They are designed to fit the wedding theme, the couple’s personalities, their venue and it can even tell their love story.
