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.

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!
