History of Victorian Wedding Cake Pendants|
A Victorian Tradition, to make your wedding grand.
In days of old, charms of luck and good fortune were placed into the wedding cake. The custom of "Ribbon Pulling" dates back to the Victorian England when the bride hid small charms attached to ribbons within the layers of her wedding cake.
The tradition has made a "charming" comeback with our sterling silver wedding cake pull charms as well as our pendant collection.
Wedding Cake Pull Pendants
The pendants, distinctive symbols of romance, are attached to satin ribbons in your choice ofcolor.
You can choose from the packaged sets listed, or choose individual pendants from our selection.
The pendants come in an organza pouch with a card explaining the meanings of all the pendants offered.
How do we put the pendants in the cake?
These tiny treasures are hidden (usually by your baker) under the bottom layer of the bride's cake with only the satin ribbon and bows streaming delicately from underneath the cake, around the perimeter.
If you are preparing this yourself, we suggest the following
- Bake the cake without the charms.
- ice the cake all around, but dont do the final edging of icing.
- use a long knife to push the charms into the area between the spongy cake and the platform or tray, while allowing the ribbons to dangle nicely around the edge of the cake.
- apply the final layer of icing around the edges for a clean finished look.
- We do not suggest putting the pendants in your mouth.
What to do with them at the ceremony
Each member of your wedding party, bridesmaids, children of the bride or groom or even the parents will gather around the cake prior to the cake cutting. Each person will and pull a charm which holds the promise of their future. Each charm has a special meaning. They can even read what that special meaning is so that the wedding guests will hear what is being wished for the bride and groom or for the charm-puller. No matter which is chosen, the future does look bright! This charming 'ribbon pulling' will surely add to the day's delight!!
These wedding cake pulls may be used at a wedding reception, wedding shower, or bridal luncheon. Also, this charming tradition presents a wonderful photo opportunity at the shower, the bridesmaid's luncheon or at the wedding reception.
What to do with them-make great gifts
Some brides give their bridesmaids a silver bracelet on which to attach their charm, a memory keepsake. This is a great idea for wedding attendant gifts.
