The wedding cake is an important part of the wedding ceremony. It stands as a centrepiece of the reception and symbolises the bride and groom’s promise to share their love and joy with everyone.
As with many of the wedding traditions, this one goes back a long way. In fact the wedding cake has its roots in Roman history when the cake was used to bless the bride with fertility. In those days guests would crumble small, salty cakes over the brides head. Now, this is not something we have seen at the Waterfront Function Centre. But there’s always a first time.
Modern wedding cakes are heavily influenced by the French tradition of beautifully decorated layers of cake. The Cake Studio specialises in this style and everyone there takes great pride in creating cakes your guests will be talking about for a long time.
They suggest it’s important to choose a cake that represents you. Make sure it fits the décor and style of your wedding and also reflects your preferences – both in taste and design. It’s also important to book your cake well in advance and don’t hesitate to interview your baker – ask to see testimonials and see if you can arrange a cake tasting.
This is easy to do at Celebration Cakes, another major supplier of wedding cakes to the Waterfront Function Centre. Open 7 days a week, they have a beautiful showroom where you can enjoy a cup of coffee with your tasting. The owner, Andrew Hill pointed out that unlike many other wedding cake suppliers their cakes are freshly baked on the premises and hand delivered by members of staff. Celebration Cakes has been operating since 1981 and know how important it is that you check over your order carefully, to make sure everything is detailed and correct.
Here are a few ideas to wet the wedding cake appetite.
Now that might sound unromantic but then so much about planning for your wedding needs to be about the basics.
However on the day, the ripple of pleasure that accompanies the appearance of a magnificent cake can’t be denied.
The cake is a symbol of a couple’s love, trust and commitment. Cutting the cake and feeding it to each other is an important symbol that you will give each other the care, comfort and company you need throughout your life together. In serving the cake to all the wedding guests you are offering to share your joy with them.
