Wedding cake or loaf for a wedding

A wedding cake or wedding loaf is the first bread that a newly made husband and wife try together.

Need to distinguish between concepts "a wedding cake" and "wedding loaf" , although in reality both guests are always delighted with both. In general, the history of these concepts is slightly different, since a loaf is a round bread that plays a significant role at every wedding, and the cake is just the sweet culmination of the celebration. Punishing for a wedding can be either rye bread or wheat. Any of them can be decorated with braided dough braids.

Cooking a loaf for a wedding is old belarusian custom. Once the wedding began with him, and the final stage of the wedding celebration was presenting newlywed loaf, who spoke about the end of the free life of both the groom and the bride. A wedding loaf was baked only during the first marriage. At subsequent marriages by a man or a woman, the loaf was not baked. For a very long time, loaves for the wedding were baked within the house, and today more and more newlyweds resort to the services of culinary shops or a bakery. Order a loaf a few days before the celebration, and pick up on the eve of the wedding.

Nowadays, the bride and groom prefer a huge multi-tiered cake to a wedding loaf, which is prepared to order. The cake itself is strewn with many cream colors, and on top of it is a figurine of a newlywed couple. It is a pity, of course, that such a long-standing rite is gradually forgotten by us, going to the past, it was baking, and then giving the loaf that brought solemnity to the wedding day.

If you nevertheless followed the traditions and chose for your purpose a separate loaf, a separate cake, then in this case, of course, the cake will complete your wedding feast. But before you hand out the cut pieces to the guests, you can plan a ritual that will accompany the fireworks or fireworks and solemn music.

And finally, a little tip: when making an order for a wedding cake, keep in mind that for each person you need to count about a hundred grams of cake.
