Cake has been served as part of the wedding ceremony since ancient times.
Wedding cakes have changed over the years and for the modern bride it seems the choices are endless.
Traditionally the cake was eaten by the guests to bestow fertility on the couple so it was very important that everyone had a piece. Hence, the bigger the wedding, the bigger the cake needed to be. The icing was white to indicate the bride’s virginity and purity. The cake was also a symbol of the bride’s wealth. The taller the cake, the more layers or tiers, the luckier the groom is.
But people these days neither know or care about these traditions. How about ditching the traditional wedding cake and going for some of these fresh wedding cake alternatives?
A tall, luxurious, stylish and pretty wedding cake? Oui!
Macarons scream chic and elegant at any event or party. If you’re going for elegance on your wedding day then macarons are a really great choice.
What’s better than cake? CHEESECAKE! I’d totally ditch traditional wedding cakes for this one.
4. Cheese Cake!
How about a cake consisting of several wheels of cheese? This can look very fancy and can be served to your guests as one of the courses. Not traditional but a great talking point.
