Why do we save the top tier of our wedding cake?

Ever wonder why we save the top tier of our wedding cake?? To understand this tradition, you have to think back to a familiar rhyme: “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage!” It used to be thought that once a wedding took place, a baby was going to come soon after. Since the top tier of the wedding cake was almost always left over, couples began to see the christening as the perfect opportunity to finish the cake! Today couples enjoy saving the top layer of their wedding cake to eat on their first anniversary. Don’t want year old cake? Have a baker recreate your top tier!
