I don't why it's called a wedding cake...but that is what my aunt always called it. It is really good. Made it for a girls get-together and everyone wanted the recipe!!

It's delicious and moist and I was told it's called wedding cake cause the ingredients have "2" of everything - get it not, single but a couple??

This is my favorite cake! Love it!

hello<br/>I have been making this cake for years, - so much so that it's almost my signature dish.<br/>I usually put lemon juice in the icing to cut the sweetness, and use unsweetened pineapple (crushed ) a 600g tin seems to be heaps.<br/>We have always known it as Mexican wedding cake recipe too.<br/>cheers<br/>Lorraine<br/>Lorri14nz
