Rainbow Wedding Cakes for Your Reception
In this article, I want to give you some fabulous examples of colorful rainbow wedding cakes that will really wow at your reception!
White Wedding Cake Origin
Many couples planning a wedding still hold onto familiar traditions without questioning the origin of how things get done at a wedding. One wedding reception tradition that many still feel compelled to follow is that of buying a white wedding cake.
Do you know where that tradition comes from? Like many traditions, this one has its origin with the marriage of good ‘ol Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840. It turns out white is a natural symbol for purity and virginity, hence the domination of the color for bridal gowns as well as the wedding cake.
So Many Colors, So Little Cake
Perhaps you are the type that likes to let loose by adding matching flowers from your bridal bouquet to dress up a colorless wedding cake. With so many talented cake makers in the world, why not turn your wedding cake vision into a real piece of art?
Add a splash of color by incorporating a bright and cheery wedding cake at your reception dessert table. Your guests will be pleasantly surprised. If you are worried that grandma might be offended, trust me, she will get over the lack of tradition the minute she bites into a slice of delicious cake.
