On your big day, you deserve the freedom to choose any kind of cake that you want. Go all out with a multi-tiered masterpiece, or keep it simple with a box of Funfetti. Whatever you choose, there’s no way you’re going to beat these crazy wedding cakes.
And as competitive as we are…we promise that’s probably a good thing.
From funny cake toppers to outlandish themes, there’s truly a cake out there for everyone. Here are 15 examples of brides and grooms who went full-on wild and wacky for this delicious tradition.
The 15 crazy Wedding Cakes That Definitely Steal the Bride’s Spotlight
1. Cattle Cake
Who doesn’t love the landscapes of the wild west, life on the ranch, and a wedding theme to match? But some aspects of this lifestyle don’t need to be immortalized in your wedding photos.
This cattle-themed cake is one of them. Even if it is on “brand.”
2. Web Of Cake
Unless this groom is Spiderman or named Charlotte, it’s difficult to understand why anyone would want a spider cake.
And if it is a Halloween-themed wedding, might we suggest some fake webs to decorate something that people aren’t supposed to eat? Although with this spidey cake tactic…there might be more for you!
3. Gun Cake
Don’t you hate it when someone confuses the simple instructions to “take the gun and leave the cannoli” by combining the two into one dessert? On the day that your daughter is supposed to be married! The audacity of some people.
Don’t ask us to explain why the two other cakes weren’t nice enough. We guess the couple just really wanted dinner to end with a bang.
4. Styrofoam Cake
Crafting can get out of control. Just ask anyone that’s ever gotten lost at a Michael’s Craft Store.
But when it takes over your life to the point where you’re making a fake cake, that’s when it’s time to see a doctor. Or better yet, a baker.
5. Harley Davidson Cake
his Harley Davidson wedding cake might be a bit eccentric, but there’s really no better way to let all your guests know that you’re cool as hell. Or, that they’re at the wrong wedding.
Ride hard, live free, get married!
6. Castle Cake
We all want to feel like royalty on our wedding day, but this couple took it one step further by building a castle…for their wedding toppers.
At once glorious and scary tall, this cake is an intricate sight to behold. We can’t even imagine what it takes to keep it clean inside!
7. Murder Cake
Want a cake that reminds you of the Netflix documentary you watched late at night that still gives you nightmares?
Look no further than this murder cake, which will definitely have your family and friends talking. Probably, years later on a Dateline Special.
8. Falling Cake
While most wedding cakes fall into two categories –traditional style or wackily-themed– this one is in a category all its own.
Confusing and beautifully detailed, we’re left feeling that this cake must have a poetic meaning we just can’t quite pin down. Is it art?
9. Hunting Cake
Are you the type of bride who loves waking up at 5am, getting in a tree, and trapping a man? Have we got the cake for you!
Although the artistry here is pretty impressive, the cake definitely makes a statement. Better pack that deer whistle for the Bachelorette party.
10. Severed Head Cakes
Impeccable. Artistic. Unique. No, we’re not talking about the royal wedding cake. We’re talking about this one featuring two severed heads…that was created by the bride herself..
While we applaud the sense of humor, we can’t help but wonder if the couple is in over their heads with this big step forward in their relationship.
11. 200-Year-Old Cake
It’s tradition in some circles to freeze your wedding cake and take a bite every anniversary, but no one talks about what to do with the cake when the marriage – and your life – is over.
Nearly two hundred years have passed since guests did the funky chicken dance with Queen Victoria at her wedding, but the cake still stands. But is it still as good as a 200-year-old Big Mac?
12. Selfie Cake
Brides are typically the center of attention on their wedding day, but this bride took it one step further by making herself the center of attention and the muse for the cake.
We have to approve of this incredible display of self-confidence. Self-love is important. Treat yourself! Or…eat yourself?
13. Nacho Cake
There’s an interesting group of people who prefer things that are salty over sweet. And for those people comes this nacho behemoth.
This multi-layered nacho cake is complete with guacamole, salsa, cheese and chips. It may not be traditional, but it should be. Is Taco Bell listening?
14. Raccoon Cake
What’s an easy way to turn a basic wedding cake into a crazy wedding cake? Throw a trash panda cake topper on it!
Sure, some people may think it’s odd. But with a classy bow tie and pearls, this cake topper from Etsy is great for the couple who appreciates the wild things in life. Or, the day-old-but-still-edible things in life that someone clearly didn’t need to toss.
Available on Etsy.
15. Minion Wedding Cake
As stars of the original GIF memes, the Minion characters have seemingly taken a life of their own.
We know public opinion will be divided on this one, so we’ll just let this meme-cake speak for itself. No, we don’t want any bananas.
