  7. I didn't realize that it was a new idea either. I don't like wedding cake, as a rule. But I like cupcakes.

    It wasn't part of my rubric. Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Oh you hit on it! ‘…Everyone’s Favorite…
    I used to make a joke: the only reason I go to weddings is for the cake.
    Years have passed and it’s no longer a joke! I can not resist white cake with white frosting, which is the predominant cake of choice for weddings, and there you go!
    Thanks for stopping by my site, Lisa : )

  11. Nice one, lovely presentation. And I didn't know wedding cake originated in England.
