Smiles For Chocolate Wedding Cakes

Smiles For Chocolate Wedding Cakes

Chocolate lovers who are getting married can now have their cake and it eat too. The traditional wedding cake was like the fruit cake you get during the holidays. It was popular because it lasts for a long time. Fortunately, the tradition moved away from the fruit cake and towards the white multi-layered cake. Nowadays, weddings are moving towards individuality rather than keeping tradition. The wedding dress is still white; but the design is largely reflective of the bride’s personality. The wedding cake is still an essential; but the design – the color, the style and the flavor, is becoming more and more personalized to represent the couple. So nowadays, it is not such a surprise anymore to see chocolate wedding cakes at receptions.

Whatever cake the couple decides to serve their guests, one thing remains constant: there will be a cake. Traditions over the centuries have changed, thankfully; but the symbolism remains the same: fertility and happiness. Brides today have it easier than brides that came before them. There was a tradition that survived until the 19th century of breaking the cake over the bride’s head. The guests would gather the crumbs that fell to the floor for good luck. There were other traditions; but what the modern bride needs to concern herself with is the ceremony where the bride and groom feed each other cake. That and serving good cake at pains of the guests remembering that the couple served bad cake on their wedding.

Wedding CakeWhen my son and daughter-in-law held a knife and reduce the initial slice out of their all conventional, butter-cream frosted, lavish, and extremely costly wedding cake, I could not aid smiling. Fresh flowers are a single of the easiest and least high-priced ways to decorate a cake. That’s why conventional faux cake rental corporations have steep safety deposits and lengthy rental disclaimers. For 25 years I was a Catering director and did hundreds of weddings and cut far more cakes than I can count but having a real cake with real icing is the way to go. Fondant icing is pretty but taste terrible and is very tough to reduce and serve. No dowels to poke in and no specific techniques to learn – practically anybody that can place collectively a cake mix can make a attractive wedding cake. I did not want to acquire a lot of plastic cake plates and supports and pillars.

Nevertheless, they wanted a classic cake cutting, so the baker produced them a fake cake with just a single little section of true cake in there for them to cut and take bites of. Then they and the guests all had the other dessert. The cake was noticed by the head baker for 1 of New York’s most prestigious society caterers, and wedding cakes have not been the similar given that.
