All About Wedding Cake: Ideas, Cake Servers & Cake Toppers

Jun 8, 2010

It seems that every time you go to a wedding, at some point in the evening you’ll hear someone ask, “have you seen the cake?”  Your guests will usually rave over the grandeur of the cake, or its lack of.  The truth is, a wedding cake is not only your dessert, but a tradition during any wedding reception.

This tradition actually dates back to the Roman Empire, when a loaf of bread was used and broken over the bride’s head by the groom, symbolizing his dominance over her.  Today loaves of bread have evolved to extravagant works of art–cakes so realistic looking and fancy that you might feel just a little bit guilty eating it because it’s just so pretty!  And of course, the groom doesn’t smash the cake on the bride.  Traditionally, wedding cakes are white to symbolize purity, but nowadays brides have their cakes decorated to match their color scheme or theme to the T.  Some brides don’t even go with classic tiered cakes–cupcakes are also becoming more popular, and look great displayed on structured tiered stands.  There are other brides who don’t even go with any type of cake at all, because they just don’t like cake or dare to be different.  So as an alternative, you can always go with  something a little out of the ordinary and more fun:  try mousse or puddings in wine glasses, topped with whipped cream, berries, or even chocolate shavings if you want to get fancy!  Chocolate fountains are also becoming more and more popular.  Display it on a table and have an array of food laid out for fun dipping.  Use fruit, marshmallows, rice krispies, pretzels, or graham crackers.  And it’s okay to be lazy, so if you’d rather just have a unique tasty treat for your guests to grab and go, our brownies, rice krispies, and gourmet cookies are not only delicious, but beautifully decorated, too!

If you decide to stay traditional and go with a normal wedding cake, you can’t forget the joint task of cutting the cake.  This minor task is actually very ceremonial:  the bride and the groom are supposed to hold onto each other’s hands while cutting the first piece.  This tradition symbolizes the first task that the husband and wife do together in their life as a married couple.  We have the most elegant and beautiful selection of cake servers to choose from, whether you want them to match your theme or personalize them as a memoir of your special day.

Finally, the fun part:  cake toppers are definitely one of the most trending and popular items currently available in the wedding industry.  The selection is huge, too–choose from simple, monogram lettering or a couple playing your favorite sport.  This tradition began in America during the 1950s, where the toppers were used to represent the togetherness of the bride and groom.  With all of the choices of wedding cake toppers, you’re sure to find something that suits you!

Don’t forget, you’ll need wedding favors and accessories to use in your wedding!

Lots of Love <3 Kelsey
