Best Wedding Cakes of 2009
If there’s one thing a couple should spend for on their wedding, it should be the wedding cake. Aside from satisfying the sweet tooth of their guests, a well-designed wedding cake serves as an interesting focal point and unifies the theme of the whole event. Here are my favorite wedding cakes from 2009.
Chanel-inspired wedding cake
The cake itself isn’t much to look at, but you gain a better appreciation of it once you find out that it was made to look exactly like one of the Chanel white dresses and origami headpieces by Karl Lagerfield. There are several other Chanel-inspired wedding cakes made after the other dress designs.
Zombie wedding cake
A zombie wedding cake? Why not? Some people might find it a little too morbid for a wedding, but I think that as long as the cake (and the entire theme for that matter) reflects the bride and groom’s interests, they should just let them be. This wedding cake was made by Mike’s Amazing Cakes in Seattle, and features a bride and groom topper that looks exactly like the bride and groom who commissioned this confection. Even the zombies were made to match the clothes of their wedding party! If my boyfriend and I get married, I’d want a zombie wedding cake too, and we won’t be inviting relatives who’ll judge us for it.
Folksy wedding cake
I love how this whimsical wedding cake looks! Inspired by the wedding invitation designed by the bride herself, the cake features Mexican folk art and a forest filled with animals.
Super Mario wedding cake
This is hands-down the best cake of 2009. Maybe this is just my bias for video games talking, but you can’t argue that this Super Mario wedding cake is well designed. It even comes with little fondant Koopa Troopas all over the tiers! Whoever commissioned this wedding cake is one cool couple.
