Connecticut Wedding Cake Bakery

The tiered wedding cake as we know it today, goes back as far as the marriage of one of Queen Victoria's daughters in 1859.

The base of the cake was the actual cake, and the smaller upper tiers were made out of pure sugar.

It wouldn't be until 1882, with the wedding of Prince Leopold, before the wedding guests could enjoy eating the whole cake.

Tradition holds that the wedding cake is the first meal that the bride and groom share together.

Wedding Cake IdeaThe newly wedded couple cut a slice before any of the guests, and feed it to each other, this symbolizes the support they'll give each other throughout their marriage.

But do you have to have a wedding cake? The couple in this picture shared bread and wine with each other. The guests brought covered dishes including desserts.

See a picture of my sister's homemade wedding cake. Also see this recipe for a simple homemade wedding cake.
