Wedding Cakes: Beautiful cakes from our real weddings... and the tradition behind them!

Did you know that the wedding cake symbolizes fertility and prosperity?



The traditionally accepted practice is for the bride to have the first bite; otherwise, she’d be childless. There’s a time during the reception when the bride will cut the cake, and again, there is a standard practice for this: the husband should place his hands over the bride’s. The cake should be cut from the bottom layer and never at the top. After the bride cuts the cake, both bride and groom have had their bites, the cake should be wheeled to the kitchen so that it gets sliced into portions for the guests - and affords the opportunity for satellite cakes.
