Cliff Smith urged me to visit St. Bride's Church on Fleet Street. It was designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 1670s and is famous for its tiered steeple. In fact a baker across the street used the steeple as the inspiration for a wedding cake for his daughter. And that's why most wedding cakes today are tiered. On the right you can see part of the Reuters Building which has been headquartered on Fleet Street since the 1830s.

I guess they didn't have wedding cakes before 1670.
