Wedding Cakes We Love!

Wedding Cakes We Love!

The tradition of wedding cakes began with hopes of bringing good luck to all the guests as well as the bride and groom. Wedding cakes were initially thought of as a luxury item, thanks to the high cost of refined sugars needed to make the pure white frosting. Today, wedding cakes are the center of attention, well, after the bride of course!

Wedding cakes, like all wedding traditions, have changed over the years. Here's a few famous wedding cakes & couples we can't forget...

These famous couples all loved a tiered wedding cake. So the legend goes, the popularity of tiered wedding cakes came as a result of a baker’s apprentice in late 18th-century London. Apparently, he fell in love with his boss’s daughter. When he asked her to marry him he wanted to impress her with a large, beautiful cake.
