Cake Cutting: The charming cake cutting tradition is one of those picture opportunities that graces every wedding album along with the first dance and bouquet tossing. The cutting of the cake represents the first activity done as a couple.
Feeding Each Other Cake: The second act of the traditional cake cutting ceremony is when the bride and groom feed each other a small bite of cake. This can be very romantic and sweet, symbolizing a commitment to provide for one another and show love or affection.
Saving the Top Tier: A less popular tradition, due to the fact that fewer cakes are made of mixed fruit nowadays, is to save the top tier. In the past couples would save the top tier of their wedding cake to eat at the christening ceremony of the first child. This tradition dated back to the days of traditional fruit cakes, when the fruit was too expensive for many couples to be able to afford to make a cake for their first born, therefore the top tier of their wedding cake was saved for this occasion.
