WEDDING CAKE – WHAT IS ITS SIGNIFICANCE?
The Wedding Cake (“Bride’s Pie” Ancient France) got it’s origin in ancient Rome, where bread was broken over the Bride’s head to bring the couple good fortune.
In Medieval England the cakes were stacked very high and the couple would have to kiss over it without knocking it over…if they succeeded they guaranteed that they would have a prosperous life together forever. Guests were given a piece of cake out of politeness. It was considered very rude and bad luck not to eat the (Bride’s Pie) wedding cake.
