A tower of jam and icing is a mainstay of weddings around the world. However, you’ve got a problem: you don’t like it. Well, there is no reason to serve something you’re not going to eat. Firstly, this is your day and you should enjoy the food as much as the guests. Secondly, a cake is expensive and buying something you hate is a waste of money.
