    It looks like somebody ran a nail across the top of the cake – and what’s the round thing in the middle of the back?

    Most likely the object at the top of the cake is just a decoration. I’ve seen several Amish wedding cakes over the years and the comment typically made to me is that most young Amish brides are no different than most English brides. –they want pretty things on their wedding day.

    The cakes are fancier than I imagined. I thought Amish weddings were mostly in the fall after harvest. I guess I have been reading too many Amish fiction books, ya think.

    That wedding corner is very pretty and the cake is very pretty too.

    I enjoyed looking over all the wedding cakes. the ones from Pennsylvania
    w/the fresh flowers were exceptionally nice. I read the comments about
    those cakes and had a chuckle about the lady who married in 1959 whose
    mother wouldn’t allow her to have blue swans on her cake. My brother and
    sister in law’s cake (1953), had white swans on it.
    It is a shame that the cake above cracked, hope the marriage lasts longer.

    It is common with the Amish to have a “corner” in which during the reception,the bride and groom and their wedding party sit. This corner is know as the “eck”.

      Yep, and some of those corners can be really pretty and ornate, while others are more plain, thanks for stopping by, Susan!
