The origin of the wedding cake can be traced as far back as the Roman Empire. A piece of bread was baked for the ceremony and the groom would eat some of the bread and break the remaining piece over the bride's head. This is considered as a kind of bless and fortune to the couple.
The ritual of the wedding cake in Britain can be traced back to medieval times, when it would have been made of wheat and, bizarrely, thrown at the bride as a symbol of fertility. In modern Western culture, it is usually a large cake, multi-layered or tiered, and heavily decorated with icing, usually over a layer of marzipan or fondant.
