Wedding Cakes – Having your cake and eating it 

For some, eating a piece of fruit wedding cake at a wedding is the highlight of the reception. Yet for others, they would rather not have a cake at all.

The choice of cake is not just about taste alone. Traditional cakes can also be extremely expensive so couple doubts about taste and cost and you have two good reasons why you may wish to not to have a cake.

Wedding cakes are another great wedding tradition, making some people believe that you have to have a cake even of you don't like it. This is not the case. There are plenty of alternatives, including nothing at all.

There are plenty of alternatives to consider in your weeding cake which are not just limited to the. Icings, cream fillings and other variations of fillings.

So please take a few minutes to take the various ideas on board before plunging into your choice. Also remember if you do decide to have a full fruit cake to ensure that your venue returns the remaining cake after the event. After all you may want to keep some of it to celebrate the birth of your first child!

Interestingly not getting the rest of the wedding cake returned safely by the venue is often one the main complaint after the happy day is over. So clearly many catering staff enjoys eating wedding cake too.





Wedding Trivia: KISS THE BRIDE
T he kiss dates back to the earliest days of civilization in the Middle East. A kiss was used as the formal seal to agreements, contracts, etc. In Ancient Rome a kiss was still being used as the legal bold to seal contracts. Hence the obvious use of the custom at the end of the wedding ceremony to "seal" the marriage vows. It also originates from the earliest times when the couple would actually make love for the first time under the eyes of half the village!
