Cutting of the cake dates back to the Roman empire where bread was broken over the head of the bride to bring good fortune. Later on in time in England they would stack bread as high as they could and the bride and groom would kiss over the bread. A successful kiss guaranteed prosperous life together.
Then in the 17th-19th century the bride’s pie was served. Guests were expected to eat a piece out of politeness. If you didn’t it was considered bad luck. As time moved on weeding cake and or pie has transitioned into what it is today. Some couples choose to do cupcakes and cut a small cake but, either way you slice it pastry has been apart of wedding tradition for centuries.
