The wedding cake has evolved over the years. Starting off as a simple symbol of fertility, it has transformed itself into an artistic tradition that can have many different artistic interpretations. For many ancient peoples wheat was a symbol of fertility and a bountiful harvest. The Ancient Romans used to throw grains of wheat at the bride and groom to wish fertility to the new couple during their wedding. This custom eventually evolved into bringing little cakes made from wheat to the wedding banquet itself. People would then crumble this cake over the head of the bride to wish the happy couple many children. The guests would then eat the fallen crumbs as a symbol of sharing in the couples good fortune.
Why do some wedding cakes taste really bad? Are they frozen or baked fresh? Ever been to a really great wedding, eaten a delicious meal, and had it topped off with a something that tasted like styrofoam wrapped in stale butter? Chances are good that the cake you ate was baked the night (or two) before and frozen until ready for serving. Not all frozen cakes are bad. They are baked to be frozen, and most good bakers know how to bake in a way to preserve the moistness and flavor you expect (and pay a fortune for).
Themed wedding cakes may not only reflect the reception but may be based on your honeymoon location. For instance, the wedding cake topper might include a Hawaiian motif as a palm tree on a sand bar, or a couple surfing or mountain climbing. In that manner, the typical bride-and-groom on top can be changed with a subtle bit of humor on an otherwise traditional tiered wedding cake by replacing the topper with Kermit and Miss Piggy, or any of your playful alter-egos.
