    Huh. Good to know what to expect when my sister marries her boyfriend. He's Bosnian/Serbian.

      anyways i was told it was for luck. at the end of the first year on their anniversary the couple eats the cake, and it brings luck to the rest of their marriage. something about the official end of the honeymoon and beginning of the real marriage.
      Supposedly the tradition started due to hopes that sometime in those first few months the couple would you have the big cake for the wedding, and then a handy little cake for the christening about a year later. Superstition came after practicality, in this case... Fruitcakes used to be the traditional choice for wedding cakes, so you didn't even need a freezer
