The Wedding Cake
The wedding cake is served after meal, as dolce, the dessert. One of the most typical Tuscan wedding cakes is the classic ‘Mille foglie‘, freely translated that means thousand levels. It is made of light puff pasty in 3-4 levels, filled with chantilly cream, chocolate chips or fresh fruit.

Another kind of wedding cake is ‘Crostata di Frutta‘, a fruit cake. The pastry is delicious sand cake pastry, topped with cream and decorated with fresh fruit. Fresh and tasty for summer weddings.

There can also be served a sponge cake, called ‘Torta Mimosa‘ or ‘Torta Eleonora‘, filled with cream, fruit, choclate chips, decorated with flowers and berries.
The wedding cake is often presented as one level cake, depending on how many guests there will be, but it is often an impressive table size cake, brought in with several waiters, decorated with fresh fruit or flowers. Some caterers can prepare the wedding cake in front of the guests, a lovely entertaining intermezzo before having the dolce!
