Wedding cakes have been around in some form since Ancient Rome but it was in 19th century Britain when wedding cakes took the tiered form that we know and love today.
Prince Leopold - the youngest son of Queen Victoria - had the first wedding cake that was completely edible and made with tiers. The tiered wedding cake soon became a status symbol of wealth and prosperity and the more tiers you had, the more wealth you were displaying. Luxurious tiered wedding cakes continue to play an important role in British weddings today.
