The wedding cake. A sweet ending to a beautiful day. That moment when the happy couple feed each other the first slice. The wedding cake has a long tradition, starting in ancient Roman times as a way to bring good fortune to the bride. In medieval England, the most important part of the wedding meal was the bride cake, as it was instrumental in insuring happiness. And while maybe in our modern times, we realize that some flour, eggs and frosting isn’t the key to prosperity, we still all agree that the wedding cake is a tasty tradition.
