Let there be cake!!
The tiers of the wedding cake symbolize prosperity; the white cake, purity.
The first wedding cake, as we know it today, commemorated the marriage of Queen Victoria's daughter in 1859.
In nineteenth century Europe, the pillars that held up the layers of the wedding cake were made of broom handles.
Early bakers of wedding cakes, not being as skilled as today's modern and certified bakers, often watched as the top layers of their creations slowly sank into the bottom layers.
The first wedding cakes were actually thin loaves of bread, sometimes baked in the shape of birds.
