Wedding cakes in Italy

In Italy a wedding cake has always been a symbol of happiness and prosperity for the bride and groom and their future life together, but traditions linked to the cake and also its form has changed over time.

The “traditional” tiered white wedding cake has originated from different cultures and has developed and changed throughout history. In ancient Rome the “wedding cake” was nothing more than a sort of bread that was broken on the bride’s head as a symbol of good luck: anyway, over time, more “civil” ways were brought into existence! The white frosting over the wedding cake has always been a symbol of purity and virginity of the bride, also recalling the vaporous, beautiful wedding dress of the bride. Modern wedding cake as we know it originated at the wedding of Prince Leopold of Albany in 1882.
