Originally not a cake at all, back in ancient Rome the groom would break a loaf of barley bread over the brides head at the end of their wedding to symbolise fertility. This later evolved into a pile of spiced buns in medieval England, and then pies and finally wedding cakes.
These days wedding cakes are about so much more than tradition, I mean LOOK at them! With cakes such as this decadent tower by Rosie’s Cakes, and the trendy rustic work of The Master Cakesmith, the sky really is the limit.
Whether you want a traditionally iced slice, a rustic, naked cake or one of the ever popular profiterole towers we have you covered. Choosing your perfect cake isn’t always… well… a piece of cake. So we’ve searched far and wide to bring Belle Bridal readers some of our favourite wedding cakes, to help make the decision a bit easier for you.
