Did somebody say cake?
Wedding cakes have their roots in Ancient Rome, when marriage ceremonies ended with a scone-like wheat or barley cake broken over the bride’s head for luck and fertility.
The new husband and wife would eat a few crumbs together as one of their first unified acts as a married couple. Not quite the mouthful of frosting you’d get today, but close enough. Once the newlyweds had their share, wedding guests would scoop up the leftover crumbs for good luck.
This fabulous cake is designed and made by The lovely Debbie at Ice Maiden Cake Couture.
