Wedding Party Cake
Well, if you’re looking for a way to show that you have a lot of friends…this cake is just for you! This traditional Italian bridge wedding cake features figurines of the entire wedding party. With five whole tiers, this cake puts you, the bride (or groom) at the top, so that you can look down at all your friends on your big day.
This cake is extra, no matter how you cut it. Each tier is a different texture. From ruffles to swirls, this cake has it all...and then some. Just be careful not to stand too close to it--one wrong look and your entire wedding party is going down like Cruella de Vil at the end of 101 Dalmatians. In all honesty, this is totally a pretty cake. It just needs to be taken down a few notches--or tiers.
Upside Down Wedding Cake
If your wedding wasn’t stressful enough, try making your wedding cake upside down! People are constantly trying to outdo each other by whatever means necessary. Cars, houses, jobs...wedding cakes. Nothing is just plain and simple anymore! Whoever wanted an upside-down wedding cake obviously had too much time on their hands.
It’s pretty much guaranteed that the wedding planner, the mother of the bride, and the bride were all staring at this thing waiting for it to topple over. If anyone was going to object at the ceremony, it was this cake. Just stick with a right-side-up wedding cake and save yourself the stress. In all honesty, an upside-down cake at your wedding is just a little tacky.
Alice in Wonderland
There are people out there that call marriage “taking the plunge” but this cake is more like “down the rabbit hole.” With toppling tiers covered in beige and green fondant, this cake looks like it’s straight out of a bad Tim Burton movie. Themed weddings are their own thing, and maybe an Alice in Wonderland theme isn’t so bad.
For a child’s birthday party, Alice in Wonderland is a great theme...but for a wedding? Not so much. A wedding is just a wedding; there’s absolutely no reason to disguise it as anything other than that! Make it white, make it pretty, and make it taste good above all else. Anything past that is just extra, especially if it involves a whimsical tea-cup cake.
Couples Who Compromise
What do you do with a bride and a groom who just can’t get on the same page about their big day? Well, you cut it down the middle, and he gets his half, while she gets hers… just like a divorce. Listen, if you two can’t decide on a cake, how are you going to settle the big things like which restaurant to eat at or which movie to watch on Netflix?
You can’t always have it your way and theirs. Sometimes someone has to get the short end of the stick and be ok with that. This wedding cake is ridiculous, and probably tells your guests way too much about your relationship. Not to mention, the Avengers superhero theme is a little bit immature for a wedding.
A Cake Fit for a Princess
What’s a girl to do when she’s ready for her happily ever after? She makes a cake fit for a queen of course! This cake is split through the middle by a wonderful castle that looks like it came from a picture-perfect Disney movie. Plot twist though, marriage isn’t always a happily ever after; in fact it can be kind of tough at times.
If you’re going with the princess theme on your big day, you may want to rethink what that means about you. By the point of marriage, we should all be a bit past the fairy tale phase of life. Life’s hard, there’s no denying it. So, it’s probably best to leave the fairytale castles in your childhood storybooks and join the rest of us in the real world.
Birds of a Feather
Birds have been part of the wedding ceremony for years and years. However, including peacocks on your wedding cake? That’s just a bit over the top, even for us. While they’re beautiful, it’s just sort of an unnecessary feature that distracts from the “wedding” aspect of the cake. No one needs dueling fowl on their wedding cake.
These birdies just don’t need to be part of your big day. If you need a way to spruce up your cake, consider ornate flowers, sugar pearls, or designs. It’s impressive that they were able to capture all the details of these birds on a cake, but it’s work wasted on the wrong occasion. Stick with the classics and you’ll never go wrong.
'Til Death do Us Part
This couple must like a little macabre with their matrimony! Sugar skulls and black flowers are probably one of the last things people’s minds jump to when it comes to a wedding cake--but hey, different people like different things, right? At least it has flowers! It looks like they even sprinkled in a few cupcakes for good measure.
Oftentimes at the wedding, many couples have to write down their vows to make sure they get it right. One thing is for sure… this couple at least has part of their vows down pat--“'Til Death Do Us Part.” Given the divorce rate these days, we’d be surprised if they make it that long. At least they have good hopes and expectations, despite the grim cake.
Is This Even Real?
Apparently, this couple needed to feed a small army because this cake it gigantic! Standing tall with at least seven whole layers, this cake towers above the ceremony. Their service staff must have needed to stand on a ladder just to cut the darn thing! You definitely wouldn’t want to start cutting this at the bottom, because all seven layers would come crashing down.
This cake would have been perfectly fine with just three large layers. The other four at the top are just a little bit extra. Who in the world needs that much cake? Half of your guests are probably watching their carbs anyway, so it’s honestly a bit of a waste. With this much stage presence, this cake looks like it’s going to get up and walk away.
Cake vs. Castle
First off, how is this even cake? This cake either took seventeen whole years to make, or it’s chocked full of plastics. If it is edible, talk about a sugar rush! All this frosting, fondant, and modeling chocolate would never make it on a plate. This cake is for the kinds of people who think more is definitely more.
By the looks of it, these people either live in Buckingham Palace, or they definitely wish they did. With castles, carriages, and cherubs this cake looks like your fairy godmother whipped it up out of cornbread and a little fairy dust. Hopefully, there’s a sheet cake somewhere, because this would be a bit difficult to serve.
Once again, who wants to deal with suspending their cake UPSIDE DOWN from the CEILING? Not us, not you, not anyone! Just these people. We love a good show just like anyone else, but we guarantee your guests are biting their nails hoping this 300-pound cake doesn’t pull the roof through the ceiling. No joke, it’s a possibility.
If your cake is this extra, it’s a definite indicator that you are too. At least these people look excited about it! They must have already had a few to knock the edge off. We’re having a hard time even wrapping our minds around how a cake like this is constructed, shipped, and assembled for your big day. A+ for creativity!
Not Just One, But 5 Whole Cakes
Whereas some people go for one gigantic cake that towers above everyone in a room, these people kept it “simple” with five cakes tiered on stair-stepped pillars decorated with strings of crystals. You know, just something subtle for the guests to look at and enjoy. While there are five cakes instead of one, the cakes are still a bit small.
To overcompensate for what they lacked in cake, these folks piled on hundreds of dollars’ worth of flowers, crystals, and ornaments. Some simple editing could have toned down the loudness of this five-finger combo cake. One amazing thing about this structure is that each cake would be incredibly easy to serve...for once.
This Cake is Bigger Than the Bride!
Some people go for the classics and keep it simple, clean, and elegant. However, these people? They’re going all out! This cake is literally twice as tall as the bride and groom. This cake must have at least weighed five hundred pounds. This cake probably cost thousands of dollars. To make it even more unbelievable, it had to be put on wheels to roll in place.
It’s no wonder the cake was put center stage--it demanded everyone's attention! Who wants to be upstaged by their wedding cake on their big day? Not us! The bride and groom seem to be staring at it out of the corner of their eyes wondering, “How in the world am I supposed to cut this cake?” Seriously, it’s just too much.
Over-the-Top and Oversized
This cake is seven tiers tall. Seven large tiers tall! By the looks of it, they’re going to need it to feed all the people they invited! Usually, couples go for one beautiful cake for the show and a sheet cake to feed the masses. But these people said, “Go big or go home!” They wanted the biggest cake their friends and family have ever seen.
If you’re seeing this and considering a cake this large for your wedding, don’t. There is absolutely no way a cake this large is cooked evenly. The outsides of these layers are positively dry. If not, their baker is an absolute miracle worker. The first four layers of this cake would be perfectly fine for your main wedding cake.
Your Cake is a Bird’s Nest
Again we've got another massive cake. This time featuring fowl! Protruding along its seven layers are dozens of birdies, some roosting and some getting ready to take flight. However you cut it, this cake is just too much. A few birds are fine, but an entire flock is a little unruly. Furthermore, birds on a white cake? How do you know what’s frosting and what's... you know?
From the picture, we can’t even distinguish what all is going on with this cake. There may or may not be flowers and twigs in there, but we can’t get a good look through all the wings and things. We’re not sure what people’s fascination is with gargantuan cakes, but it’s definitely a trend that seems a little self-indulgent.
When you’ve been to a hundred weddings, wedding cake just doesn’t suit your fancy anymore. For these people, they decided to think outside the box and make a custom couture confection cake made entirely of multicolored macarons. The macaron craze got a bit out of hand there for a while, and we get it--they are really yummy.
However, committing to a towering cake made of the sweet, bite sized dessert is a little over-the-top. This masterpiece is three times as tall as a human being! Hopefully, they have extra on trays, otherwise the guests may have felt a little too intimidated to play macaron Jenga with your gigantic wedding cake.
