Fruit cakes, fillings are out, even though the United Kingdom’s Royal wedding went with a traditional fruit cake, which most Americans shun religiously at Christmas, so would NEVER be included or thought perfect for a wedding cake to be shared with your new relatives, friends, or even your spouse. Prior to the tradition in the United Kingdom of sweet or fruity cakes, in Medieval times the cake was usually made of a plain unsweetened bread. Actually probably a truer metaphor for what the bride was getting into than anything since. The bread was usually eaten first by the groom, who then broke it over the bride’s head showing his dominance over her (presumably throughout the rest of their married life.) I can see why that is not practiced anymore.
Many think that this ”crumbling of the cake” over the bride’s head may have evolved into another wedding day tradition? Do you know what it is? In order to protect the hapless bride from the wheat shower that is to come, bridesmaids draped a cloth over her head before the ”crumbling tradition” took place. Many believe that this simple cloth evolved into the wedding veil of today.
Just like there are wedding dress trends there are also wedding cake trends. When I got married, I knew that I wanted my cake to be on three different pedestals arranged askew, not in a row or on top of each other, I was bucking the 2005 wedding cake trend. Back then most of the cakes looked like round hats stacked on top of each other, complete with the bow. Color was just starting to get adventurous, back then. Also I knew after tasting several cakes randomly, that I wanted double chocolate/carob and my friend’s specialty butterscotch rum in the middle. I also, love fondant, so I knew that I wanted that as my frosting. Although I didn’t buck traditional altogether since my cakes were white with purple ribbon at the bottom of each layer with flowers to compliment my dress. Because of my allergy to milk, I knew that the top had to be a white cake and hopefully something that would keep for a year, or so I thought.
Dinosaur Cake, To make this fun birthday cake idea you will need two nine inch cakes. On the first cake simply cut away about ¼ of the cake so that all that is left is a shape that is a little bigger than a half-circle. Then from the flat side of your half circle shape cut a U shape in the center cutting from the flat side up towards the top rounded side. About two inches up and over. This will be the body of your dinosaur. Next using a stencil cut out the shape of the head and tail from the other cake and put them on the body shape of the other cake. the tail shape goes on one end and the head shape on the other. Simply coat with frosting and add accents.
