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: CAKE
In the 1st century B.C. in Rome, the cake was thrown at the bride or broken over her head as one of the many fertility symbols which then were a part of the marriage ceremony. Cutting the wedding cake together, still a predominant ritual at weddings, symbolizes the couple's unity, their shared future, and their life together as one. The three tiered cake is believed to have been inspired by the spire of Saint Bride's Church in London, England.
