The History of Cakes

The History of the Wedding Cake is as strange as it is long!
- The wedding cake tradition can be traced back to ancient Rome where the groom smashed a loaf of bread over a bride’s head. For fertility.
- The 17th century precursor to wedding cakes was the “bride pie.” The Bride Pie was made up of lamb testicles, sweetbreads, mutton, and often a glass ring which would act much like today’s bouquet. Cakes certainly have come a long way.
- Today, over 91% of brides now rely on the internet to book their wedding cakes. Be one of them and stop by to order the best wedding cakes in nyc today.
