1. Peruvian cake pull


All the single ladies, all the single ladies! Gather around the wedding cake and join in on the Peruvian cake pull. White ribbons are inserted into the bride and groom's cake, one with a fake wedding ring on the end. Any single woman who wants to participate can take a turn pulling a ribbon from the cake. Whoever ends up pulling the ribbon with the ring is said to be the next to marry.
