The moment when the wedding cake becomes the center of attention is when the traditional cake cutting ceremony is performed. Many of us have witnessed this moment when the first piece is cut by the bride and groom in a joining as husband and wife. After the cutting the guests are served by the bride and this custom dates back to the Roman Empire where this task devolved exclusively upon the bride. After the cake is distributed, the couple starts to feed each other and this custom is also loaded with symbolism; it means the mutual commitment of bride and groom to take care of one another.
In early American wedding ceremonies it was the tradition that the groom had his cake, too. Distinctive to the bride’s cake, the groom’s cake was brown, covered in chocolate and it made its apparition along with the wedding cake. Some states from the South part of America still seem to have preserved this tradition.
