England                         Traditionally, a fruitcake serves as the wedding cake in the country. Consisting of nuts, fruits, orange peel and liqueurs, the cake is topped with butter cream or fondant. The top layer of this cake is often saved for the couple which they eat at the christening of their first child. (Pictured) The eight-tiered Royal British wedding cake that was served during Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding.

China                         Traditional wedding cakes in China are called "dragon and phoenix" cakes, signifying happiness. The wedding cakes are mostly given by the bride’s family to the groom's as a gift

Indonesia                         A multi-layered cake is a preferred choice during weddings as it is believed that the layers symbolise a ladder and would contribute in a successful marriage.

France                         The French wedding cake is called croquembouche. The cake is actually a pyramid made up of cream-filled puff pastries which are put together with caramel and decorated with spun sugar.

Greece                         Mostly, cakes at Greek weddings are flourless, filled with vanilla custard, fruits and almonds.

Italy                         Italians have a choice of two traditional cakes - millefoglie, consisting chocolate, vanilla cream and strawberries and zuppa inglese, filled with chocolate and vanilla custard, cream and fruits.

Norway                         Instead of a cake, people in Norway serve a bread dish called brudlaupskling at their weddings. The bread made of wheat flour is topped with syrup, cheese and cream.

Sweden                         The wedding cake served in Sweden is called the princess cake or prinsesstarta. Made in 1930s for the first time, this dome-shaped cake’s outer layer is made from green marzipan with a filling of vanilla sponge cake that is layered with raspberry jam and vanilla cream.

Jamaica                         The traditional wedding cake in Jamaica is called the black cake. With lots of brandy and rum-soaked ingredients such as raisins, currants and prunes, the cake is a delight to eat.

Korea                         The traditional wedding cake presented at Korean weddings is known as tteok. The cake is usually made up of sweet sticky rice, nuts, fruit or red bean paste. It has turned into a universal dish today and is a part of several Korean festivities.

Japan                         With both real and fake cakes a part of Japanese wedding celebrations, the fake cakes remain more dominant. The fake cakes are made using cardboard, rubber and Styrofoam; some also have a slot in them to add to the illusion that the couple is actually cutting the cake.

Lithuania                         In Lithuania, the traditional wedding cake is known as sakotis. With herbs and flowers adorning it, this tree-shaped cake tastes like a cookie.

Ukraine                         At Ukrainian weddings, visitors are offered traditional bread, korovai, which is decorated in the way of a cake.  It is prepared as a combined effort from both bride’s and groom’s family members and may have one to five tiers in all.

Bulgaria                         In Bulgaria, honey cakes are prepared during weddings to wish the couple a happy life ahead. In some families, the groom’s mother feeds the newlyweds the cake along with wine

West Indies                         The wedding cake prepared in the West Indies is similar to the Jamaican black cake with fruits soaked in rum for as long as a year. A common wedding tradition here is for guests to peek under a white cloth to take a look at the confectionery that is going to be served during the event.
