"What is a Cornucopia Cake?"
customary wedding cake in Denmark is a tall circular cone shaped cake
based on almond paste. This Danish marzipan ring cake is also called
the cornucopia cake (overflødighedshorn) or a "circular cake" (kransekage),
it is made with almonds, pasturage and marzipan. The cornucopia shape
symbolizes the The Horn Of Plenty, promising happiness and a good financial
future of the married couple. On the outside, the cake is decorated
with favors or sugar work depicting flowers and birds. Inside it is
filled with fresh fruit, candy and almond paste. As always the danish
newlyweds then cut the cake together, before serving it to the guests.
Everyone must eat a part of it, otherwise it is said to bring
bad luck to the marriage.
I had one couple who used these cakes as the centerpieces for their table decorations. If you don't have any danish relatives but would like to try this cake out there is a great recipe on this site: http://www.parenthood.com/recipe_display.html?ID=21109 as with anything you might like to try for your wedding, you should plan to bake a trial run cake months before hand. That way you can see if you like it. I personally love any and all forms of marzipan cakes. If you decide to incorporate one of these cakes as a groom's cake or as table decorations you will not need as much of the regular wedding cake, so plan accordingly.
Whenever couples ask me what they should wear for dance classes, I always
tell them to be "comfortable from the ankles up and to wear Slippery
Shoes That Stay On Your Feet!" True Ballroom aficionados wear suede
bottomed shoes which slide easily but give enough traction to avoid
slipping. Leather soles are excellent as well for social situations
where you might have to go outside. Many men will try to show up for
dance classes in big clunky work boots with huge rubber soles. If your
shoes stick to the floor you will feel clumsy. If you are not comfortable
dancing, the last thing you need is your shoes working against you.
Brides often wear shoes such as mules which come off the feet too easily.
If you are going backwards this means that you will have to clench your
toes in order to keep the shoes on your feet, often causing you to get
you stepped on as you will be spending too much time thinking about
your shoes instead of the man's lead! Also, if you do not find a way
to affix your shoes to your feet you may make clopping sounds as your
walk down the aisle! I suggest finding a pair of shoes that comes over
your heel or has a strap over the top of the foot. Barring that, try
out the fashion tape available at many bridal shops (this is the stuff
that kept Jennifer Lopez in that now infamous open green "dress").
