The wedding cake has a long history; in Victorian England each tier symbolized wealth and privilege. White frosting made from refined sugar, a rarity in those times, meant purity and the whiter the frosting the more affluent the family. The cutting of the cake is the first task the couple takes on together in their new life and feeding each other means mutual caring and nurturing.
Today the wedding cake is just as important, but now it comes in all sizes, shapes, and flavors. Cake has become a big business, and there are many talented bakers on the island to help you realize the perfect cake. From nautical, to beachy, to a Nantucket basket-like weave; the possibilities are endless.
If you don’t like cake, there are other options that are becoming increasingly popular. Cupcakes and cake pops have been a huge trend lately, while others prefer pies, cookies, or an ice cream bar to end the evening on a sweet note.
