This cake gets to something like a ninety-five percent for us, but that last five percent does it in and gets it on this list. The flowers look really nice, the design that has been “burned” into the cake looks just as shoddy as it should, and even the antlers look nice.
And yet, the wood design around the cake looks like it could have taken more care – plus, it’s not the most appetizing way to decorate a cake, there are a whole lot more that are worse on this list alone. Also, the cake itself isn’t centered on the riser, and for something like a wedding, you want everything to be in the proper spot. Just…just push a little. A little to the left. Just a little.
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.
We are So Confused
Confused and maybe a little frightened. Actually a lot frightened. The backstory is this cake (as well as the entire wedding reception, maybe even the wedding itself) is eighties-themed, which while not our favorite theme ever, doesn’t seem TOO bad. But this wedding cake just can’t stand up to what most people might be hoping to see. Let’s work up to the top.
Okay, so the bottom layer is a weird lime green (the worst green) surrounded by small candies. Nothing terrible so far. It also has a hand? Maybe it’s supposed to be a Michael Jackson glove. The second level is a bright pink, with a note to the theme and other things around it. Then there’s the cube. A cube that can’t be solved no matter how hard you try, and anybody who’s been around a Rubix can tell you that. Also, the topper, which is...childish at best.
Oh Boy, Cherry Flavor!
For a long time, zombies were one of the most popular things in the media. We aren’t that unhappy it’s gone away, but it was really, really popular. One of the biggest things about it was the show “The Walking Dead,” perhaps one of the best pieces of zombie media out there for people who want to see something bloody and thrilling.
Somehow, someway, there are some people that thought it would be a good idea to make their wedding at least a little bit zombie-themed. Because that’s what wedding guests want to think about: death! Blood! Corpses! Their loved ones with wounds and blood all over them! Also, how are they supposed to have cake served if you aren’t supposed to open it? That’s a problem that shouldn’t have been introduced.
That’s Why She’s the Better Half
We don’t really understand why there are so many cake toppers that show the wife literally dragging the husband away from something like a computer. Yes, fine, computer games are fun, but you know what else is fun? A lifetime companion! Other-centered devotion! Leaving the house once in a while!
Not only that, the game that the cake is covered in is none other than “Fortnight,” something that is becoming the game that is so popular that it’s causing problems for lots of parents that have to drag their kids away from the computer. We think this might be one of those half-and-half cakes – you can see the edges of what appears to be a more standard cake design, with white simplicity instead of video game characters.
