All About The Tiers
Although many couples choose to have a flat, one-tiered wedding cake, there are others who choose to live by the rule that bigger is always better. Because of this, they like to order a cake that has multiple tiers. This way, they can add their own aesthetic touches into the mix, while also adding different flavors into the cake itself.
Taking It Back To Tradition
While most couples now buy tiered cakes because they like the way they look, this tradition can actually be traced back to medieval times. When these couples tied the knot, they made it their mission to make a cake with as many tiers as they possibly could. Then, they could kiss over the top of the cake and see what happened. If the cake toppled over, their marriage was doomed.
For The Guests
The general rule of thumb is that a three-tiered wedding cake will serve around 50 – 100 guests. If you’re having a larger wedding with more people in attendance, it might be an idea to add another tier or two. Of course, this does also depend on the size of the slices that you cut!
It’s time to get baking!
