When the groom feeds the bride with a piece of the cake, the cake itself signifies nourishment and through this sign, the groom pledge to make food available, provide her shelter and money for the bride for the upkeeps of the house and the family in general.
The response from the bride is by feeding the groom and makes her pledges to care for the home, prepare food and give birth to children.
At this point when they are feeding each other, they are not supposed to touch one another, by not touching each other during the feeding, each person pledges to perform their tasks unassisted.
The cutting of the cake involves the wife holding the knife and her husband gently assisting as the piece is detached. Both of them will take small quantity of the cake, face each other and feed one another.
Remember, neither partner touches during the feeding; it is always good to pay more attention to where you’re putting the cake rather than where the cake is coming from. The possibility that you might miss your partner’s mouth if you concentrate on where the cake is coming from is high, and that is why you need to concentrate on where you’re going to put the cake and that shows element of TRUST.
