Today we're starting with the most delicious part of any wedding reception- the wedding cake!
As much as we love the new trends of dessert tables and cupcake cakes, there is just something to be said for the tradition behind the tiered wedding cake.

The tradition of having a tiered cake at the wedding reception started back in Anglo-Saxon times. Each guest brought a small cake to the wedding and those cakes were stacked on top of each other. Later, a clever French baker created a cake in the shape of the small cakes and covered it in frosting, which is now what we know as the tiered cake. (Source of wedding cake wisdom)
