In honor of our guest for our local radio show this week I would like not only to honor a wonderful Las Vegas Gourmet Cake Master, but the cake as well. Tune in to your radio with us to learn all about the art of the wedding cake with Dominque and your host Brian Mills and Yours Truly. Don’t forget the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Show will be live on the radio Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. (Pacific Time). We invite you to listen in or call in to the show. We’d love to hear from you. You may listen online also, at www.klav1230am.com
Let me begin by saying…I LOVE CAKE! The popularity of shows like Cake Boss are really upping the ante’ on the wedding cake business. You see designs that are just out of this world and I understand the requests can be crazy as well. I cannot wait to hear Dominques craziest cake request. Oh, and the most popular flavor and well, I’d best stop there before I go into a cake frenzy and have to have some before I proceed.
The wedding cake tradition dates back to the Roman Empire. Now it was a bit (a lotta bit) different than you would expect. It began as a loaf of bread, not actually cake. Now here’s the part where it gets whacky to the Bride and the bread-heyyy. The Groom would take the loaf of bread and break it over his Brides head to symbolize his dominance over her. Ouchhhhh
I’d rather be clubbed and dragged by my hair, than waste good bread or cake for that matter. However, I am glad to see that tradition has evolved, and it is now a sweet treat shared at the wedding reception with your one and only and your family and friends.
If a cake is in your future I encourage you to order a cake through the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel where Dominque will make you a cake that will make you salivate and want to lick your fingers.Mmmmmmmmm~
