From top to bottom of the cake itself, this pretty little piece seems perfectly fine. But, then, your eyes scan up to the topper, and you wonder how it all could have gone so wrong. If you looked at it from afar, you might not notice anything amiss, but take a closer look and you’ll find that those two haven’t turned out as well as the bride and groom might have hoped.
There’s a chance that these two are from another culture – the groom almost looks like he could be in a traditional Japanese kimono, but it still isn’t the best thing we’ve ever seen on top of a cake. But, at least she isn’t having to drag him around. The bride’s dress is quite nice, even if it does crowd things a little bit.
A Merging of Two Cultures
Now if you didn’t know what this was, you’d probably be confused, but this cake is called a Kransekake, and it’s a traditional Norwegian wedding dessert. Seeing as how it’s covered with Norwegian flags, we think it’s clear this is from a different place in the world. We think these look cool, and they taste pretty good, too.
However, there’s a little more going on here – we can also see English crackers, which people can pull apart to find treats or toys, or other kinds of surprises. To a lot of people, it might look deflated or odd, but this is a common sight in weddings in a large part of Europe. Go ahead and try a little bit before you turn your nose up at it.
Covered in Snow
At first glance, it seems like there’s nothing wrong with this cake – white, some nice pretty flowers on top of it. But then you take another look and you realize that it looks a little bit like it’s been out in the sun for too long. The icing seems to have taken the word a little too literally for our liking, and it doesn’t seem as if it was applied by someone who has much experience with it.
There are also small bits and pieces of decoration around the bottom in an extremely haphazard way, so we’re starting to think that this dessert has actually taken a spill at some point. Or somebody put it in the oven and didn’t realize it was at a toasty two hundred degrees.
It’s Made Out of Old Banana Peels
It’s not often you see a wedding cake that has the color of split-pea soup. Either that or the banana frosting was sitting out in the sun for too long. Not only that, but it looks like the hearts that are around the bottom layer haven’t been having a great time, either. In fact, the whole thing looks like it’s drooping a little bit.
The curls on the top layer aren’t even, and the frosting looks like it’s about to start running. Well, at least the figurines on the top are ignoring all that destruction. This kind of thing can happen if it’s too hot or humid out – too much moisture and the frosting won’t firm up. As long as it tastes good, that’s what we say.
He Has to Wait His Turn
The actual execution of this cake is fine – quite good, in fact! However, we would like to point out that the bride and groom are usually on top of the cake together – not the groom a layer or two below her while she cavorts in a martini glass. This kind of design tells you a thing or two about what is most important in her life.
It’s not the guy, despite the fact that he seems perfectly content to sit down there and wait for his turn in the cup. Or, well, we guess he might be looking forward to dancing with his new wife or something like that. Honestly, depending on how long the wedding ceremony was, he might just be happy to be able to pop a squat.
