The wedding cake is a creative way to make a major statement on that special day and these bakers from around the world were up to the challenge. Here’s to a sweet celebration of wedded bliss!
A Cake of Life-Size Proportions
One bride in Texas made headlines when she had a wedding cake made of a six-layered life-size replica of herself in her wedding dress. In celebration of renewed vows with her husband of ten years, the unique cake put the happy couple in the international spotlight. Even sweeter, she had her husband’s full support when she thought of the unusual design. Now that’s true love.
Art Imitates Cake
Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s most famous painting “Starry Night,” this four-tiered wedding cake is a French Post-Impressionism masterpiece of the dessert variety. Baking virtuoso Jan Kish of La Petite Fleur hand-painted the icing and installed inlaid Christmas lights to light up the iconic night sky. Made with fondant and crystallized sugar detailing, it is one sweet piece of art.
Biggest Wedding Cake in the World
When it comes to love, some couples have to go big, and the bakers at Mohegan Sun Casino answered their call. In 2004, they revealed a 15,032 pound, six-tiered wedding cake at a bridal showcase in Connecticut. It also made the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest wedding cake in the world.
Cakes of the Rich and Famous
For the super elite, a wedding is the perfect opportunity to not only express love and commitment but also to flaunt some serious status. When Donald Trump married supermodel Melania Knauss in 2005, he impressed his guests with a seven-tiered, five-foot high, 200-pound wedding cake made with 3,000 white icing roses made of Grand Marnier buttercream.
Revenge of the Nerds: The Cake Edition
If you’re a fan of Lord of the Rings, you’ll appreciate the artistry and attention to detail in this one-of-a-kind hobbit-inspired wedding cake. Created by the bakers at Tiffany’s Baking Company in North Carolina, they used fondant and buttercream icing to create a confection full of gnomes, fairies, and other embellishments from the beloved Middle Earth woodland in the Shire.
Cake C’est Magnifique
For Francophiles getting hitched, this glorious confection takes the cake with its Eiffel Tower sculpture made with black fondant and hand painted details of famous streets in Paris, the romance capital in the world. The hand-painted depictions of the Arc de Triomphe, River Seine, and Notre Dame Cathedral are almost too beautiful to eat.
