Wedding Cake Ideas and Projects that YOU Can Do!!
Seeking wedding cake ideas to help you save on your diy wedding? The crowning glory of any wedding reception is the Wedding Cake. The instant the word is uttered, a picture of a multi tiered cake pops into your mind. These sugary masterpieces were not always so deliciously decorative. Like many wedding day traditions, this one has evolved over the years. Many, many years!
This tradition is an old one! It comes from back in the Roman days, when it was actually a small loaf of wheat bread. During the middle ages, this loaf of bread was transformed into small, sticky sweet breads that were actually brought by the guests! They were piled high in front of the Bride and Groom to create a towering effect. Their task would be to attempt to successfully kiss over the pile, ensuring fertility and prosperity in their future. The wedding day dessert that we know and love today seems to appear at the wedding of England’s Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840. Her cake was a multi tiered masterpiece that was roughly 9 feet in diameter and 300 pounds!!
Today, it’s hard to have a wedding without some variation of this sweet treat. And there are a lot of variations. Couples today have only their budget and their imagination as their limit when it comes to today’s options. With practically any flavor an option, and any shape, size, style and decoration available, the choice can sometimes take forever! And there are many, many wedding cake ideas out there for you to consider. Even cup cakes are a widely accepted variation to today’s wedding cake.
These desserts roughly averaged at $543 (as per The Bridal Association of America). Many brides and grooms are choosing do-it-yourself options to help curb the cost of this edible delight. There are many options for you if you’ve got an open mind. Maybe you’re a baking pro and just need a few decorative pointers? Perhaps you’ve got adorable cupcakes and need a an equally sweet way to present them? Or could it be that you ordered the very plain cake that your budget allowed, and you’re looking for ways to dress it up yourself?
