This elaborate structure has inspired many romantic tales such as a young bride and groom separated on their wedding night because the groom had to board his ship to catch the tide. The couple was not able to have their wedding reception and wedding cake. The young sailor spent his long, lonely nights at sea carving all the beautiful woodwork and brought it back home and presented his bride with “icing for her cake”. It got its name from a local businessman perpetuating the romance of the Kennebunk area and labeled it “The Wedding Cake House” for a postcard collection of beautiful homes along Summer Street.
