A Wedding cake is a traditional symbol, which is eaten and cut at weddings. As the new bride and groom cut their cake it signifies their commitment and new life together. The newly weds, breaking bread for the first time so to speak. The cake cutting song can be the Bride and Groom's favorite song. Either a slow tempo, romantic song or an upbeat "happy" tune work well for this tradition. Songs that have sugar and sweet references have been popular.
