The history of wedding cakes begins in ancient Rome when a wheat or barley cake is smashed on the bride's head to promote luck and fertility. Newlyweds eat with crumbs to join as a married couple. Guests will pick leftover crumbs for their good luck.
Practice c. [. 43 CE] This practice continued until the conquest of Britain by the Romans when the British took the bread and threw it at the bride to aid infertility. By the medieval period, barley bread had been turned into spicy buns, cookies, and skunks that were as small as they could go. The newlyweds will try to kiss over the pyramid of sweets, and if they succeed, it means good luck to them. Tires caught by broom handles will be made many decades ago.
In 1685, the Brides Pie was created and was considered the first official confection of the Yorkshire wedding. However, this pie was not full of sweets. Instead, it includes lamb flavors, oysters, necks, and other animal products, which are certainly not common in wedding desserts today. But not breaking this foundation was to drown the couple in life. There was also a ring hidden in the pie, and whoever found it was considered the next person to marry. Like the effect of bouquet holding, but not since the tradition began.
Wedding Pies and Dessert
Wedding cakes began to replace pies in the 17th century that were made by local bakers, as many homes do not have an oven.

If you want to ensure a happy married life, a piece of cake and a plate cut from the head before the fight between the bride and groom. If it breaks, their lives will come out surprisingly.
It is believed that tiered cakes did not appear until the end of the 18th century. As the story unfolded, a London baking apprentice fell for her boss's daughter. Inspired by the tiered structure of St. Bride Church, he wanted to make an elaborate pastry for the proposal.
And so, it shapes the tiered cake that is made into most traditional wedding cakes nowadays. Then whether it is two-tiered or six, nothing really has changed in its construction. However, over the years decorative tools and techniques have changed drastically. Different trends come and go before coming back again.
