We include a charcuterie board and some delicious sweet goodies on our pop up wedding days. If you’re going to celebrate may as well enjoy some good food.
Our serving boards are hand made live edge from Costa Rica. Which makes these tempting little treats even more irresistible.
The History of Wedding Cakes. The history of wedding cakes begins in Ancient Rome when a wheat or barley cake was broken over the bride’s head to encourage luck and fertility. The newlyweds would eat the crumbs together to unify themselves as a married couple.
Get a load of this…from Wikipedia: “During the 16th century to the 17th century, the “bride’s pie” was served at most weddings. Different from the modern sweet wedding cake, bride pie is savoury. Bride pie is a pie with pastry crust and filled an assortment of oysters, lamb testicles, pine kernels, cocks’ combs from Robert May’s 1685 recipe.”
Ugh……Glad that’s not a thing anymore. I’ll stick with flour and icing and whatever else our local chefs use to create this delicious cakes.
