What is a cake pull?
First of all, a cake pull or ribbon pulling ceremony is a tradition dating back to Victorian times. The bride would hide charms attached to ribbons inside her wedding cake and each of her friends would pull a ribbon to reveal their future (i.e. good luck, romance, fortune, etc.) Today, cake pulling is still popular in the South and are a fun way to incorporate your bridesmaids, flower girls, and friends. And the cake pulling now typically takes place at the shower instead of the wedding.
If you love the idea of cake pulls but don’t want to mess up you’re cake, bakers are now opting to put the pulls under the cake underneath parchment paper to protect the design (and to make it food-safe).
