White Wedding Cakes That doesn’t mean yours has to be old-fashioned

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Is there anything more recognizable and symbolic at a wedding than a classic pure white tiered wedding cake? Born out of an ancient Roman tradition of breaking bread over a couple’s head and sharing among the guests for good fortune, wedding cakes have evolved a long way from their simple beginnings. In Medieval England, it became popular for cakes to be tiered higher and higher as a game for the couple to try to reach over the top to kiss without knocking it over. In the 18th century when sugar was still difficult to obtain, having a completely iced cake was a sign of wealth and opulence at a wedding, and the signature white colour symbolizes the bride’s purity.

Today, in a world of endless colour and design at our fingertips, there is still something so very perfect about a traditional white tiered wedding cake. That doesn’t mean yours has to be old-fashioned, though! On the contrary – we’ve rounded up some absolutely stunning contemporary white bridal cakes for you to feast your eyes on. You’re sure to love these crisp, clean styles with perfectly-placed ribbons and flowers to compliment the look of your wedding theme.
