Wedding and cake have been together for ever. In medieval times, biscuits, cakes and scones would be piled high for the newlyweds to kiss over. It was believed that the taller the pile, the greater prosperity they’d have. Legend has it that a French chef visiting the court of Charles II was so appalled by these untidy, messy mounds that he created the iced, multi-tiered cake and set a new fashion.
