If you didn’t already know, I actually simply wrote about how bloody high-priced the average wedding ceremony in Australia is. It’s plenty. Couples are spending around $500 on the cake on my own. That is insanity! People are just going to drunkenly dig in besides.
Victorian woman and authorized baking hack genius, Silvina Werner, realised this and made her pal an actually amazing wedding cake out of eleven of those conventional choccie mud cakes from Woolies at a teensy $4 every. Yup, eleven desserts, three layers and a tiny $fifty seven general fee tag.
Silvina took to Facebook organization Woolies/Coles Mudcake Hacks (by the way, what an AMAZING institution and plz permit me to be a part of) to expose off her advent – as she bloody must. Look on the pretty component:
“Wedding cake I made for a friend,” she captioned the put up, “11 choc mud desserts from Woolies in total. Bottom tier consists of 4 desserts each made from 2 mud desserts, 2nd tier is two mud desserts and for the third tier, I cut a dust cake into two smaller ones. Betty Crocker buttercream in between layers and protecting. Fresh flowers supplied by using the bride. Proud of my efforts.”
We’re proud of you too mate.
“To make the lowest tier of the cake, I used eight mud desserts in total. I lined a bigger tin with happy wrap and squeezed two mud cakes collectively to make one huge one. It’s now not as excessive as an everyday cake however laboured nicely as its the correct peak for one layer. Once they have been within the tin spread out I simply wrapped them and iced over until wanted. The centre tier is just two normal sized mud cakes with icing cut off and the top tier I cut one cake into two smaller ones.”
Personally – and I recognize this makes me a weirdo – I hate the chocolate muddies – but I might 10000% do this with alternating caramel and vanilla layers. Like, not even for a marriage. Just because, why not.
Welcome The Middle Ages
During the Middle Ages buns or sweet rolls had changed the authentic wheat cakes, but it was nevertheless very normal for visitors to deliver those tasty treats to the marriage. Placed in a big pile among the bride and groom, if the glad couple was capable of kiss over this massive stack of wheat, it turned into believed that they could be blessed with many youngsters.
It is generally believed that the following step within the evolution of the traditional cake turned into done by a French pastry chef at some stage in the seventeenth century. During a ride to London, he took place to take a look at this “cake piling” ceremony. Upon his go back to France he dusted the stack of buns with sugar, and thereby “cemented” them collectively into one tasty artwork form. This was to come to be the first rendition of the tiered and frosted wedding ceremony cake, and a forerunner as to what changed into to return inside the years beforehand.

Are you familiar with the traditional fashion of the modern day wedding cake? You recognise, the one with the unique design of smaller stages as the cake builds vertically? It is thought that this model turned into stimulated by way of the spire of the 14th century Saint Bride’s church in London. How’s that for a bit of trivia for you?
Victorian England has delivered us lots of cutting-edge valued wedding ceremony traditions. For example, Queen Victoria herself is stated to have had a cake that weighed in at 300 lbs. As confectioners and bakers have become more bold and skilful, their creations have become even more daring and complex. When England’s Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip had been married returned in 1947, their wedding ceremony cake weighed in at a whopping 500 lbs and was nine toes tall.
