As a longstanding tradition dating back to Roman and Medieval times, a wedding ceremony must have its Wedding Cake.
The cake was originally little wheat cake that were broken over the bride’s head to have fertility and saving a piece of the cake until after the wedding ensured the partner’s fidelity.
The sponge cake was often made at the bride’s home and after iced at the confectioner’s house, decorated only with simple and natural flowers.
The meaning of the wedding cake has evolved over the history but one thing has always remained true:
cutting the cake together represents the couple’s first joint act as husband and wife and the act of eating the cake brings good luck.
Contemporary wedding cakes evolved from traditional white icing cakes to colorful, become taller and made from professional bakeries and pastry chefs.
Giants flowers, special tecniques of decorations, extravagant colors are things commonly found today.
The Newest Wedding Cake Trend
The Naked Cakes have become the perfect alternative for couples who want something less traditional for their wedding.
These cakes are easily recognized by its absent or minimal outer layer of frosting, which shows off the cake’s natural texture and filling.
Some of these have zero frosting on their outer edge, while others have just a wisp of buttercream.
The Naked Cake is most often white or yellow, although you can find naked cakes in every flavor …understated and natural,it seems to convey a similar character as “rustic” baked goods and recipes- a feeling of comfort and home!
