Black and White Wedding Cakes – Perfect Contrast
Are you looking for an attention-grabbing wedding cake that your guests will remember for years to come? Then black and white wedding cakes are the perfect choice.
We all enjoy a good wedding cake. Indeed, we have for hundreds of years. In Ancient Roman times, bread was broken over a bride and groom to send them good fortune and wish them luck for a long and prosperous marriage. In Medieval England, the happy couple would kiss over the wedding cake to guarantee success in their relationship, and the cakes would be stacked as high as possible. In the Victorian era, white icing was used to glamourise wedding cakes, symbolising wealth and social status. Nowadays, it is undeniable that these decadent black and white wedding cakes will bring comfort and joy to every modern couple.
Nothing says more about newlyweds than their choice of wedding cake. It is what they want to share with their company, what they want to offer as a representation of their union. In 17th Century England and America, there were both bride’s cakes and groom’s cakes. As time passed, the popularity of the groom’s cake lessened immensely, and the cakes combined, so that just one would be served after the wedding. What could possibly symbolise this amalgamation of two souls better than black and white wedding cakes – a fusion of the black from a traditional tuxedo, and white from a wedding gown, forming the colour scheme of the cake?
Black and white wedding cakes add, rather than detract, from rooms of any colour. You can choose gold accents, which allow them to pull the right amount of focus. They are charmingly decorated and make use of simple, clean designs to give a bold effect.
Black and white wedding cakes are undoubtedly indulgent for both the couple and their friends and family. Adorned with flowers, they take everything we love about wedding traditions like bouquets and give them a modern edge. These monochromatic wedding cakes are something which will be remembered by the guests of any wedding reception and, seeing as they taste as glorious as they look, there isn’t a wedding theme or couple that these cakes wouldn’t compliment.
