The custom of tiered cakes came from medieval times when guests would bring bread, scones, biscuits and other confections to the ceremony and pile them to create a high cake. It was then a game for the bride and groom to attempt to kiss each over the top of the pile without knocking it over. If they managed to do it successfully, this would be a symbol of a marriage filled with prosperity!
Why all the white icing?
The traditional white icing was originally meant to symbolize purity. However, as the price of white sugar went up over the years, white icing began to be seen as a status symbol. Queen Victoria was the first lady to have a pure white icing on her wedding cake. That is why it is known as ‘royal icing’.
The world’s largest wedding cake weighed 6.818 tonnes (6818 kg / 15,032 lb) and was Cake Decorator or made by chefs at the Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA and displayed at their New England bridal showcase on 8 February 2004.
