The top half of this cake is good! Fine! Perfect! Excellent, even! It looks a touch whimsical, which is fine for anything but the most uber-traditional wedding. A nice lilac color, some flowers, some patterns, and even a bow. And then you get down a level and you wonder how it all could have gone so wrong. Maybe the wife designed one half and the husband designed the other half?
We aren’t even sure which half would be which in that case. Despite the name of the article, we can’t believe we have to say the following: Please do not ask for or make a wedding cake that has anything resembling actual gore and organs. You might like the design, but when you get to the reception, what are you hoping for? Disgust from the guests? Not something to want.
A Dessert for a Carnivore
Weddings are always changing and shifting – for instance, recently there has been something called the “groom’s cake” that has been making appearances. There are a bunch of ways to describe it. Sometimes, it’s a cake influenced by the groom’s interests and hobbies, sometimes it’s a way to make serving a dessert to all the guests easier, rather than having to carefully cut and serve the tall tiers of a more traditional wedding cake.
This one tells us that the groom is a master at the grill. A beautiful t-bone steak isn’t the sort of thing that most people want to eat for dessert, but this cake still looks pretty good. It’s a little lumpy, and the colors are a bit strange, so it kinda looks like a pair of lungs, but it’s still okay.
When Children Get Married
We don’t know why someone would think to put these kinds of yellow creatures on a wedding cake, but there are all sorts of people out there. Not only are there minions – a bad idea according to most people just to start with – but then they went ahead and dressed those minions up in costumes, like Loki from Marvel, and what appears to be the dragon Toothless from the “How to Train Your Dragon” series of movies.
Oh, and then some of them also appear to be dressed up as zombies, so you KNOW that the people who are exchanging vows on this day are mature and wise adults. No, we’re kidding, this is pretty bad. Don’t put minions on your cake. Don’t put zombies on your cake. And definitely don’t do both.
We’re Getting Hungry Over Here
There must be some sort of trend going on that we aren’t aware of that has people adding a whole lot of extra frosting or fondant foods to the design. It also seems to be something that is often with the United Kingdom, since they regularly include baked beans of all things.
But we see a lot of other options from the food pyramid, including donuts, what appears to be a hot dog or a sausage of some kind, a cup of coffee and/or tea, and...other slices of cake? There’s something that looks like sheet cake with frosting on it, but it’s a little hard to tell exactly what it is. The design is honestly pretty good, it’s just weird to see this sort of idea more than once. It’s going to confuse some people, that’s for sure.
We Know What They’re Doing on Their Honeymoon
It most certainly isn’t the traditional cake, but we kinda like this one! The deer heads look immaculate, the leaves are actually really well done, and the “camo” design on the cake itself is subtle and attractive. Sure, the fact that the rifle shells or whatever they’re supposed to be are silver seems a bit strange, but perfection is hard to reach. The bride deer even has a cute little veil!
No, it isn’t the kind of cake that you’ll see most of the time when you walk into a reception, but think of all the hard work that went into almost every detail of this centerpiece dessert. Maybe it wasn’t even the only cake – it could have been the groom’s cake.
