normally the weddings cakes have ribbons and at the end of each ribbon is souvenirs, little ones, actually made in plastic but one has a wedding ring, made in plastic too , except you have too much money like maradona did and put a diamond ring! and all the girls in the wedding that are not married pull from the ring and the one who gets the rings it suppose to be the next one to married! just a nice tradition!!!! i got the ring many time but it took me time to get married!

Thank you, Ashelen! I like the sound of this tradition. It sounds very nice to me. It is similar to the bouquet tradition that we have in the US. The bride throws her bouquet to a crowd of unmarried women. Whomever catches the bouquet is supposed to be the next one to get married. I wonder if any royal brides have done this? Somehow, I doubt it. I really like the fact that Maxima incorporated the ribbon tradition into her cake. I wonder if the unmarried women attending her wedding pulled the ribbons?

I wonder the same, and i am not sure they did becasue she is cutting the cake and normaly you pull the ribbons before to cut the cake, still it does not make sense to me the flat top of the cake, i wonder if it was something there and tooke it out!? the tradtion with the bouquet is the sme in argentina too but now you normally have another bouquet for that, it normally gets a little bit destrys all the single girls trying to get it! it is nother tradition too , "the garter" and i wonder if she did it too! it is very funny! i wonder what tradition are in holland for weddings?

Ashelen, your point about the flat top of the cake makes sense. I wonder if there was a cake topper that was removed. It does look like a pedestal. Perhaps someone has another photo of the cake when it was first displayed?

I don´t know how was the taste of the cake, but her appearance is fantastic. It´s really beautiful!

Seriously, I know what you mean. Mind you, I'd imagine the couple would have a lot of guests to feed and pieces of the cake would go to charities, as was the case with the Queen Mother's wedding cake and possibly other royal wedding cakes.

The top tier of The Queen's wedding cake was re-iced for Prince Charles's christening.

I live in France (near paris) and i Saw just this WeekEnd the same style of Cake quite as tall by a windows shop, I found it original as a party or Wedding cake but when i Get near ....i constat that it wasn't a cake
it was just a very big Support for the Macarons (small colored round cakes up) , under the macarons it is just a plastic support which give the apparence of a very big cake....

Don't get me wrong! I'm just a bit hard to please, since I always thought wedding cakes are true nightmares - see those monstrosities, like the Duke's and Duchess' of Vendome or K.Abdullah's and Q.Rania's, for example.
