The Wedding Cake stamp was first issued in 2009. This 2012 stamp covered the 2-ounce rate and was used for wedding invitations and oversized cards.
 
Important at weddings since ancient Greece, wedding cakes have always played a special role.  In the early days, guests brought cakes to the reception.  By the 18th century, brandied fruit cakes were served, later evolving into white, round, multi-tiered cakes.
 
In recent years, however, wedding cakes have begun to take a radical turn.  And their creators are no longer just bakers, but designers who create edible works of art. Today’s wedding cakes are as varied as the couples who are celebrating.  Wedding cakes come in all shapes – including squares, ovals, hexagons, and octagons.  Some people even choose to serve mini-cakes or cupcakes, to give their guests a greater variety.  And for couples who have wedding themes, cake designers will sculpt the cake into almost anything.
 
More and more couples are beginning to add color to their cakes.  Cake designers can match frosting to the dresses or reception hall, or make handmade edible flowers.  Many of today’s cakes are bright masterpieces full of color and detail.
 
Personalized cake toppers are also popular.  From elegant monograms to humorously posed brides and grooms, the sky is the limit.  With so many options now available to couples, no wonder the wedding cake is one of the most photographed sights at a wedding reception – after the happy couple, of course.
