“A Good Wedding Cake” – A Delicious Wedding Poem

Today I have been thinking about Poetry and how it can inspire, teach and really affect us, and I came across this lovely Wedding poem which talks about Love and my other favourite thing…Cake!

Everybody….well most people love Cake, and most people love to be in love.

Both are heartwarming, comforting and can lift you and raise a smile.

Therefore the recipe for a good Wedding Cake and furthermore, a good marriage goes hand in hand.




A Good Wedding Cake


4lb of love

1/2lb of sweet temper

1lb of butter of youth

1lb of blindness of faults

1lb of pounded wit

1lb of good humour

2lbs of sweet argument

1 pint of rippling laughter

1 wine glass of common sense

A dash of modesty


Put the love, good looks and a sweet temper into a well-furnished house.

Beat the butter of youth into a cream and mix well together with the blindness of faults.

Stir the pounded wit and good humour into the sweet argument, then add the rippling laughter and common sense.

Work the whole together until everything is well mixed and bake gently for ever.

Its also really good advice about what we should think about when entering into Marriage and about working hard to ensure that love always retains its deliciousness…
