  • Until the 1940s it was tradition for a wedding to have two cakes – one for the bride and one for the groom.

  • The bride’s cake is the main one. It is larger and fancier and embodies the colours and the theme of the wedding.
  • The groom’s cake is usually more representative of the groom’s personality and a way for them to leave their own mark on the wedding.
