As a young lass (or lad) growing up, you’re probably used to cake at parties. After all, a birthday party without cake and candles is really just a get together in my book. That said, for the grandest of your parties, you must have the grandest of all cakes! I’m not going to go into a lot of detail about what a wedding cake is. If you don’t know that by now, you have problems too big to solve through a web article. But simple as they are, here are the FAQs most couples have when purchasing.
Now, the trend tends to be for a deeper cakes, and we are back to stacked in the traditional straight stair-step up. The only break from tradition is the deepness and the dimensions of the layers are a little bigger to accommodate more guests. Nowadays, the cake no longer has to be the traditional round layered cake, but can be a veritable extravaganza of shapes and sizes, but are usually still stacked one on top of the other. The wedding cake as we know is the center of the wedding reception, much like the Bride has evolved to be the center of the entire event. It is said that the dress and the cake should be chosen with equal care. In the beginning of the dessert for the wedding it was called Bride ’something’, whether it was pie, cake, or non edibles like the bridesmaids, and bridegroom, all to denote the day of marriage was to be centered on the bride. It was and is her day.
Welcome The Middle Ages, During the Middle Ages buns or sweet rolls had replaced the original wheat cakes, but it was still very customary for guests to bring these tasty treats to the wedding. Placed in a huge pile between the bride and groom, if the happy couple was able to kiss over this huge stack of wheat, it was believed that they would be blessed with many children. It is commonly believed that the next step in the evolution of the traditional cake was performed by a French pastry chef during the 17th century. During a trip to London he happened to observe this ”cake piling” ceremony. Upon his return to France he dusted the stack of buns with sugar, and thereby ”cemented” them together into one tasty art form. This was to become the first rendition of the tiered and frosted wedding cake, and a forerunner as to what was to come in the years ahead.
Prepare your cake batter. Depending on how many people your cake needs to feed, you will want to double, triple or quadruple your normal cake recipe. Make each batch separately. Use a large glass measuring cup so you can measure how much batter it yields. Note this information on your recipe. Take one of the cookie sheet pans and using a cake batter filled measuring glass, add batter until it is half the height of the cookie sheet. Spread evenly.Use a spatula to spread cake batter evenly taking special care to get into the four corner crevices. Repeat using the same amount of batter for the other cookie sheets.
