Your wedding cake is a slice of symbolism. As the bride and groom partake their first taste of life together, they sometimes offer one another a sample of cake, which represents mutual caring and solidarity.
Over time, wedding cakes have increased in size and significance. In the past, cake crumbles were sprinkled over the couple’s heads, symbolizing abundance, fertility, and good fortune. Later, the cakes were stacked like towers, replete with icing — a representation of sweetness and lasting harmony. This tradition has given rise to elaborate, savory, and often expensive modern-day wedding cakes.
