St Bride’s Church is famous in the City of London. Why is it influential in the history of cake making?

Answer: In the late eighteenth century an apprentice pastry cook married his master’s daughter at the church and used the church’s spire as an inspiration for a tiered wedding cake. This style caught on and is now the most common wedding cake style in the western world.
