Wedding cake traditions
Wedding cakes are a predominantly Western tradition in marriage ceremonies. It is the tradition that a newly married couple stands together, hand on hand, and cut the cake together. This is because cutting the wedding cake is a symbol of unity and togetherness. Cutting the wedding cake together is also another essential marker of the couple’s commitment to one another on their special day. This is basically the reason why wedding cakes are still so popular in modern culture.
So… what sort of cake should we go for?
Wedding cakes come in a huge variety of different sizes, shapes and colors. It is entirely up to the couple which flavor they choose to decide upon for their special day. Most popular flavors include fruit cake, chocolate cake, sponge cake and even cream cakes. There are no hard and fast rules and it is entirely the couples’ decision which they would like to select.
