Wedding Cake: The “right” wedding cake for the brides, grooms & guests

Did you know that the origins of the wedding cake dates back to Ancient Rome, where a cake of wheat or barley was broken over the bride’s head to bring good fortune to the couple! 

During the 16th century around Europe, the wedding cake was called the “bride’s” pie and it was savoury.

The modern wedding cake as we know it today was actually for the wedding of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany; his wedding cake was the first to actually be completely edible with tiers.

Fast forward to 2020 and there’s an abundance of different types, flavours, look and colours of wedding cakes, to suit the couples fancy. 

You don’t have to compromise on “the right” wedding cake, as our Perth bakers get more creative and importantly, know that there are new trends or dietary requirements.
