The Tradition of Cutting the Cake


THE TRADITION OF CUTTING THE CAKE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


Every wedding reception that you attend is likely to have the ceremonious cutting of the cake. This is a tradition that dates back all the way to when King Charles II was King of England. The design of the cake dates back to this time as well. In those times, a baker would be assigned to design a cake that had many different levels. The baker would stack them and frost them and the top level would represent the new husband and wife and the love they shared for each other. After the ceremony, the wheat cake would be broken over the bride’s head to wish her good luck and to bestow wishes of fertility on her.

Today, the cake is not broken over the bride’s head but the bride and groom do share a kiss over the cake and then cut the first piece together. The design of the cake is still often the same with the tiers being stacked one on top of another. The top level being meant to represent the bride and groom may still be rooted in tradition as often couples will have a cake topper that will represent themselves and they will also often save the top tier and freeze it for their first anniversary.
