The Wedding Cake Hunt in Greenhills San Juan

The rows of condo for sale near San Juan are the ideal starting point to accomplish one of the important items on your wedding planning checklist: the cake tasting. Why is cake tasting a big deal? Can’t you just go to the first bake shop near for sale condo in San Juan and casually order the cake you first lay your eyes on?

In case you didn’t know, this wedding tradition has a history and symbolism. According to Llewellyn, it:

“…goes back to Roman times when a cake of meal was crumbled over the bride’s head to provide good luck…symbolizes good fortune and fertility…brings good luck to everyone who eats it…should be made with an abundance of good quality ingredients to symbolize a long-lasting, rich, and happy marriage.”

This is the reason the bride and groom should stress over finding the right wedding cake for their reception. Aside from being a background for a great photo op, it has something to do with the union of the couple.

Luckily, there are good pastry shops or patisseries that have cakes for sale near a condo in San Juan:
