Wedding Fiction or Non Fiction? | Wedding Cake

A Slice of History

The tradition of saving the top of the wedding cake dates to the late 19th Century. History states, the new bride and groom would soon be planning a christening after the wedding and the saved cake could be used in celebration of their baby. The current tradition is to save the top and eat on your first anniversary; historically this was a sign of wealth for a couple.

For the love hungry bridesmaids, in the 17th Century, a single person would take a piece of the bride’s cake and place it under her pillow hoping for dreams of a future spouse.
