To all my fellow design conscious, sweet tooth cake lovers out there...who agree that stuffing yourself stupid with your divine looking wedding cake is the best reward for successfully banning yourself from sweet things to shed those last minute kilos...I present to you...
Interestingly... "The tradition [of the wedding cake] may have its roots as far back as the Roman Empire. The groom would eat part of a loaf of barley bread baked especially for the nuptials and break the rest over his bride's head. History tells us that breaking the bread symbolized the breaking of the bride's virginal state and the subsequent dominance of the groom over her. As wedding cakes evolved into the larger, more modern version, it became physically impractical to properly break the cake over the bride's head."
hmm... there would definitley be hell to pay if Jarrod broke cake over my head.
