Nephew getting married

Another nephew is getting married soon. Last night he visited us with his mom to deliver the wedding invitation and the customary cakes.

I haven't eaten such cakes for a long time.  These days, they usually give a whole cake but an assortment is always more interesting!

We hope to dispense with these customs if and when it comes to our children's turn. The senior relatives wouldn't be very happy but I am afraid they would have to accept it from us. These folks don't even understand why they were doing this. Many customs remain but their significance is lost. This is not culture.
