Wedding Cake Smash - Why the tradition?

Did you ever wonder why newlywed couples decide to, hand in hand cut their wedding cake, then proceed to innocently feed each other all while debating to carry on the very popular tradition of smashing cake into their faces? Well…

 To this day the bride and groom gather their guest around them, the beautiful wedding cake is sliced, and then smeared across the newlywed couples faces! This all originated from the Romans.

In ancient Rome brides would have barley cake crumbled on their heads to symbolize future fertility as well as male dominance. 

Jump ahead to medieval England newlyweds would kiss for the first time over a large pile of buns, ensuring a wealthy future. Not really into cake I suppose.
