Fact of the day for you 🤓
The first tiered wedding cake was designed by a late 18th Century apprentice baker, William Rich, from Ludgate Hill London. Legend has it that when looking for ideas for his wedding cake (he was marrying the master baker’s daughter - so kind of a big deal) he looked up at St Brides Church on Fleet Street, London. There he gained inspiration from the Sir Christopher Wren designed stacked spire - and tiered wedding cakes as we know them today were born.
