Curiosity #1

DID YOU KNOW....
 
... Why a wedding cake?
 
The wedding cake symbolized fertility. Today, the cake serves the dual purpose of providing dessert for the guests and a photo opportunity for the couple's wedding album.
The top layer of the cake isn't eaten. Instead, the couple is supposed to save it for their first anniversary.
However, many people do not enjoy eating cake that has been frozen for a year. Therefore, they sometimes ask their baker to recreate the top layer of their wedding cake for their anniversary celebration.
 
Wedding cakes are integral to marriage traditions. The cake symbolizes happiness, good fortune, and a sweet life together.
Legend has it that the tiered wedding cake evolved years ago when guests brought sweet buns as gifts. The hosts stacked these breads into a tower as they received them. Later, this custom led to the tiered wedding cake.
 
Cutting the Wedding Cake
 
The traditional cake-cutting ceremony symbolizes the beginning of the couple's shared life. During the ceremony, the bridegroom puts his right hand on the bride's and they cut the first slice together.
 
The Groom's Cake
 
Providing a separate cake for the groom is an old Southern tradition. Historically, the cake was meant for single women guests who were supposed to place a slice under their pillows and dream of their future husbands.
Today, the cake can be any flavor, color or shape. Sometimes it's served at the rehearsal dinner instead of the reception.
 
P.S.: DID YOU KNOW..... A traditional Indonesian wedding cake such as this one is very tall with many tiers, representing the heights that a couple will climb to a successful marriage.
