The history of the wedding cake

Wedding cake
Have you ever wondered where the tradition of having a wedding cake comes from? You can find the answers in the Spring 2005 issue of Gastronomica, wherein Carol Wilson recounts the long history of wedding cakes.

I think my favorite part is the recounting of royal wedding cakes--500 lbs. and 9 feet around! Can you imagine how nerve-wracking it would be to have to deliver monsters like that?!
