Wedding cakes are supposed to be the perfect dessert for one of the most important days of our lives – or, at least, the idea of a wedding cake has certainly been sold that way. People spend hours taste testing different cakes, frostings and fillings trying to choose the combination that is the most delicious, and spend even more hours trying to decided on a design. Classic tiered cakes are always popular, but it seems that the trend these days is to go for something unique if possible. Whimsical cakes, with their unconventional, slanting layers are a one type of cake that adds a little originality to a wedding, especially when decorated in bright and bold colors.
I have to say that I’ve never seen a wedding cake quite like this one, however. The wedding cake pictured here is a life-sized replica of the bride, made entirely of cake, from the shoes up to the tiny floral detailing on the bodice of the wedding dress. If it made the wedding couple happy, that is really all that matters in the end, but eating a cake that looked like a person – especially a person I knew – would just be too weird for me. My preference is for something just a touch more traditional. And preferably without a face.
