Wedding planning isn’t the easiest of things, even if it is one of the most exciting times of a couple’s relationship. One of the things people have to consider is the wedding cake, and no couple wants it to be disappointing, although these guys had a shock.
Cake on the beach
Look, we can’t bash someone for trying their best. The person who made this was obviously given a tough set of instructions, and they didn’t necessarily translate well into cake and chocolate. Many people have great memories of going to the beach, and being by the seaside surrounded by sunshine and sand.
Well, this couple wanted to turn those memories and feelings into a cake somehow. Unfortunately, it ended up looking like a sandy mess. Although, it looks as though it would probably taste quite nice.
Jabba the cake
Many people like traditional wedding cakes because they look fantastic, they taste delicious, and they’re a simple shape, generally speaking. However, these guys decided to get something a little more out there. These guys pushed the boat out and requested a small version of Jabba the Hutt.
If you’re a major ‘Star Wars’ fan, then this might seem impressive. However, to anyone else, the back of this cake looks like a strange, wrinkly, brown blob. Not the most appealing thing in the world.
This is probably what happens when you can’t decide what kind of cake you want. We can just imagine the couple standing here, stressing about what cake they want, and then deciding that they’ll just take them all.
However, looking closely at this mess of cakes, it seems almost impossible that they’re somehow remaining upright. Our next question has got to be, how on earth are they going to transport that monster of a cake(s)? Together, this is a bit of a trainwreck, although separately they each look pretty nice.
She loves her broom
Everyone has their differences. This woman and man decided that they wanted to get married, however their cake got a little bit confused. While we’re sure these two must be very happy together, we’re not too sure what the broom has to do with it.
We’re also not too sure whether the person making the cake got confused somewhere along the lines, and ended up missing out the G from groom. Well, as long as they’re happy, who cares, right?
A wild burst of color
On the one hand, there is no missing this cake. As you walk in, this is probably the first thing anyone would notice. Something that couples sometimes worry about is having a memorable wedding – but this one is certainly fitting that criteria.
However, some people forget that less can be more, especially if the bride wants to be the center of attention. Unfortunately, we’re not too sure people will be able to take their eyes off the cake enough to watch the happy couple on their special day.
You can do it
This is what happens when you don’t show the baker your Pinterest photo and just describe what it is you want. These guys must be huge fans of climbing, and maybe they even met while climbing. So, naturally, this is the theme of the wedding cake.
Sadly, it looks as though the baker got really annoyed and just threw the decorative pieces at the cake at random. Not to mention the groom doesn’t look like he’s doing too well at all.
Sometimes, we really do need to consider the necessity of having autocorrect. This was a basic cake ordered for a rather conservative wedding. The only saving grace of this cake is that the writing is in the same color as the rest of the icing, so some people might not notice it.
However, we’re not too sure the bride and groom will appreciate having the word ‘thrust’ on the side of their cake for guests to read. We’re almost certain these guys won’t be changing ‘trust’ for ‘thrust’ in their vows. Unless this was their plan all along.
Too heavy to manage
This cake looked like it had a lot of promise, in our opinion. After all, it wouldn’t have taken a small amount of time to write on all that detail. However, this was not a cake that was built to last, and it looks as though the heat of the venue started to make it fall in on itself.
Unfortunately, it’s practically got to the point where it’s too obviously ruined for it to pass as a wedding cake. It will still taste good, though, right?
Speaking of lifelike cakes, this one isn’t just a fantastic likeness – it’s an actual woman! Of course, many weddings are filled with staff members who are paid to help things run smoothly. Most of us know that, but this woman was actually turned into the cake tray.
While she might stand out, it seems like a majorly impractical thing to do. What if she needs to use the bathroom, or if she passes wind? That’s only human, after all. Well, as long as she doesn’t trip, everything will be okay.
It’s going down
To make this cake work, they turned it into two cakes with a top and bottom half. It seems that the bride and groom forgot about that as they tried cutting the cake. We can’t help but mention that they were starting from the top, which probably didn’t help.
These things happen. If they didn’t, then we wouldn’t end up with hilarious pictures of wedding guests going from happy to gasping in horror within a one-photo difference. At least they still had the bottom.
Unquestionably hand-frosted, potentially deep fried?
Behold, fellow confectionary connoisseurs, look upon this work ye mighty, and despair. What we have here is only the finest in euclidean architecture, a real creme de la creme in frosting fashion. Atop this cakey cathedral we are faced to its main featurette: the porcelain-posed poultry fondant figurine.
It’s head seemed to have jumped forward in time to foreshadow some deep-fried fate. Is it deep fried? In any case, we sincerely hope that this wedding cake only includes a chicken, and doesn’t actually taste like it.
What’s this? A simple, to the point and literal title for some cakes of the same grandeur. In this case the baker in question asked the couple for their elusive demands, and the answer was, “Just cake.” Then again, perhaps we are wearing too critical of a lens upon our monocles, clearly, this is a modern minimalist masterpiece.
Edgar Allen Poe’s cake perhaps was not the most poetic, it was all fluff and fritter! We rescind our remarks, the juxtaposition of elegance and three plain brown cakes exude true genius. But wait then again…
Two Hostess representatives fall in love
Yes, friends, those are in fact twinkie barriers, and we shouldn’t have it any other way. Like a well-oiled machine with many perfect cogs and gears, this cake just works. Upon a second look and greater thought, this cake was made to please everyone. Don’t like Sno Balls? Have a Cup Cake!
Oh, you don’t like Cup Cakes? Have a Ho-Ho, ya Ding-Dong! This couple thought of everything and everyone, and saved a couple bucks. These newlyweds receive a JD Power award for most well-thought out cake of the year.
The world’s most poetic cake
Did you ever read The Raven? How about Dracula? Frankenstein? Certainly you’ve at least heard mention of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? Regardless if you have or not, wouldn’t it be awesome to bring all those ideas and turn into a wedding cake?
Surely the baker asked the couple what they wanted for that very special day, and the couple asked the baker these same questions saying, “We just want it to say ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ and fit a vampire theme.” The ring’s a nice touch.
Gardener forgets to trim cake
The cake is nice. It isn’t easy to layer a cake just right, and fondant figurines are a nightmare to make. Still, this cake pulls it off. The baker did a stellar job with the weaved-effect on the cake’s facades.
Going with avante-garde coloring, shades and hues of white suit the cake well. However, we just have to point out that the cake may have been overwatered, leading to some exposed roots from the rose. A gardener would have tidied that up real nice.
This is another cake that looks rather nice and normal from the offset. It’s a lovely white layered cake, with a few decorations adorning the side and adding color. However, once you take a closer look, you will realize how extraordinarily strange this cake really is.
Those balls of color actually have faces, and they’re a little bit terrifying. It’s almost like a weird bird form then placed on top of the bride and groom’s head. It looks like something from some B-rate horror.
Best part of the cake is inedible
What do you mean the doves can’t be eaten? They’re made out of porcelain? Blech. The doves are so the best part of the cake, save for if you’re a fan of thistle between the teeth. A truly bizarre organization for the cake, guests must have felt conflicted with it.
On one hand, there’s a pretty plain slice of cake being served, on the other, there still isn’t a dove because, again, it’s apparently inedible. We’ll have the blue slice then, please.
Part of your world
If love is an endless ocean full of fish under the sea, this couple certainly saw it and just had to incorporate it into their wedding cake. It’s funny to see the seaside serenade on top of the cake because it just looks so strangely out of place.
Their waltz over the water just feels goofy, and the intense blue makes it clear they are standing over water, but even still that blue just doesn’t feel right. The cake was probably good — albeit unintentionally comedic — for this couple.
Two brides and one groom
This seems like an idea the groom came up with at 4am, and then told the bride he had an awesome surprise for the cake. We’re betting the bride thought it would be romantic to go along with the surprise, but wouldn’t have guessed what he had in mind.
This is pretty extravagant, and while some people might like that, we’re not too sure this bride is happy looking at a cake sculpture of herself. It’s not a bad likeness, but it’s a little odd.
The tallest cake ever
We’re almost certain that this cake is taller than we are. The colors look fantastic, and the tiers are crafted to perfection. However, we’re not too sure what the point is if you can’t even reach the highest tier. We only wish we could have seen the baker adding tier after tier until they needed a ladder for the rest.
Anyone who never thought so before will surely see baking as an art form this time around. If anything, it reminds us of the sorting hat from ‘Harry Potter’.
A cake of sushi
It seems that the term ‘cake’ is somewhat broadening. Apparently, this bride and groom thought that they could get away with calling this sushi mound a ‘cake’. If this were a part of the food collection or some kind of buffet, then it would look awesome.
However, it seemed that pudding was going to be raw fish and beans. We’re not sure whether anyone else would have known that this was the cake if it wasn’t for the cake toppers. Perhaps this wasn’t the best choice of dessert.
They wheely wanted it
Clearly, this was a couple that did something related to motor vehicles. That’s our educated guess, anyway, unless they really do just like tires. However, it seems that the cake maker they employed didn’t mention that the design was a little out of their league.
The icing isn’t even, it’s cracking, and the lines aren’t consistent enough. It was a reasonable effort, but this wasn’t what the bride and groom wanted to present to their guests. It’s not our style, but it could have worked if done correctly.
An absolute mess
This seems like something that would be rolled out in an awkward sitcom. While others may laugh at the character’s misfortune, just imagine how the real bride and groom felt seeing this being wheeled out into their wedding reception.
We’re guessing it didn’t survive the delivery process and was destroyed on the way to the venue. At least, we’re guessing there wasn’t a member of staff they seriously annoyed. At the very least, it could still taste amazing, which matters.
Yellow is the color of happiness
Does this couple get points for being different? After all, it sure doesn’t look like all the other wedding cakes that you might see around. Although, we’ve got to ask whether it’s even a cake at all. Where are the defined tiers?
It just kind of looks like a sponge has been molded together to make it have some kind of structure, but we’re not impressed. At least the flowers look pretty, right? Maybe it was done by a family friend who offered their services for free.
A stunning weeding
If you were making a cake for someone’s wedding, surely you would double check the spelling of what you’re writing? Well, this person was so confident in their spelling skills that they went ahead with writing that message.
Sadly, they ended up writing the word ‘weeding’ instead of ‘wedding’. Unless there is some weird plot twist to this story and it turns out to be a gardening themed wedding, this was probably a major disappointment. The flowers are pretty, at least.
No quacks here
Every couple is different. These guys clearly idolize plastic ducks. Wedding toppers are kind of iconic, so maybe these guys just didn’t want to have anything too extravagant and found these at the store. However, it doesn’t quite work on this pink camo cake.
For another event, this cake would probably look quite cool, however it doesn’t seem to fit the bill for a wedding. The cake toppers brighten it up a little bit, as they seem happy.
It looks as though this cake has had enough of standing up tall. It’s been a long day, and it has almost fulfilled its destiny to look pretty and eventually be consumed. Maybe the venue was warmer than everyone had anticipated, and the cake just started melting down.
You never know, the bride and groom could have asked for a dropping cake! Does that somehow make it more impressive? We’re not sure, but the only thing we can think of is how sad we feel looking at it.
A real redneck style cake
This cake has so much going on we barely know where to start. We guess the first thing we have to address are those squirrels. We’re desperately hoping those aren’t real squirrels topping the cake. Taxidermy is quite the art these days.
To make it even more exciting, they have also added empty cans to decorate the surrounding of this brown and green cake. We’re not too sure that these are things that should probably go together, at all.
Off you go
It seems like a really cool idea to make a cake look like a couple of suitcases. After all, they will be jetting off for their honeymoon pretty soon. It’s easy trying to figure out what was the priority for these guys.
Sadly, it looks like their baker didn’t get the memo about just how important this cake is. The whole thing looks like a major rush job. It probably could have looked pretty amazing if they had just taken a bit more time to do it.
A helping hand
We’re not too sure about you guys, but we’re pretty sure that there are some kids out there who could have done a similar job. The icing on the bottom of the cake is probably meant to resemble some beautiful flowers, but instead looks more like, well, icing blobs.
As for the top half, who reckons the baker brought their kid into the office for some work experience? Unfortunately, this looks like something anyone could decorate. Not the best impression for a wedding.
The bigger, the better
From a distance, it looks as though this cake is presentable. After all, it does all go to the same place, and, at that point, presentation doesn’t matter. Well, once you take a closer look, it becomes pretty apparent that the icing on this cake is bursting out of the sides.
We reckon they took one look at this cake, realized how bad it looked, and went for the biggest flowers they could find to cover it up.
This cake was so close and yet so far away. It had all the ingredients, quite literally, for it to be amazing, but it seems it just wasn’t meant to be. This still probably took a fair amount of time, even if it didn’t come out quite as planned.
However, this person was sorely mistaken if they genuinely thought the bows would make a major difference to how this looks. We suppose that it’s a good thing they even tried doing it.
One dirty cake
People have to remember that there is a significant difference between sounding good and actually looking good. Now, brown, orange, and green don’t even sound good together, so we’re not too sure what led these guys to this decision.
While we’re sure that there’s probably nothing wrong with how it tastes, it’s not the sort of thing that has us eager to dig into it. We’re also not too sure why there’s a deer in the mix of all this. We guess that’s for the bride and groom to know.
A splash of color
Sometimes, you really do have to see the bright side of a situation. This cake may be delicious if you closed your eyes and didn’t think about how it looked. Once the cake is brought out on a wedding day, there’s not much a bride and groom can do but smile and, well, eat it.
This looks like it was bought from a store, thrown around a bit, and then had someone’s toddler decorate the colors onto it. We sure hope they didn’t pay professional prices for this.
Taking things too literally
Sometimes, online instructions can be a little confusing for some people. It probably should have been evident that all they wanted written on the cake was “wedding cake”, but clearly they didn’t want to take any chances on the instructions.
Of course, with the cake being so simplistic, the person who bought it probably didn’t think to check it over until the day, and then it was too late. Always check what’s written on your cakes, people.
There is so much going on with this cake, it’s hard to know where to start since most of it is decorative. Although, that’s somewhat up for debate. We’re not too sure whether we want to know whether that’s a real skull or purely a selected wedding topper.
We’re guessing that this is some kind of hunting-themed cake. We probably wouldn’t dig that anyway, but this is somewhat harrowing. If it were up to us, we would stick with those oddly decorated cupcakes.
We’re only kidding. If you’re wondering, this is a camouflage cake, and we were joking we couldn’t see it because, well, camo. Yeah, don’t worry, that’s not mold, it’s not old, that’s just how it’s supposed to look.
Well, if everyone decides to go out for a post-wedding hunt, someone can bring the cake along, knowing that it’s not going to ruin the mood. As long as no one puts it down, they should be fine. Although, we’re not too sure who will be willing to take the first bite.
A unique decision
We’re not too sure we have ever come across a cake in the shape of a bridesmaid. Sure, we have seen a cake of the bride, which is strange but makes some sense, but this is very out of the box. It’s a cake of simply just the wedding dress, and a pretty tall one at that.
People might get confused between the bride, bridesmaids, and even the cake! On the bright side, it’s been done fairly well.
Do-nut do this
Some people don’t even go for the whole wedding cake thing, because that was so last year, right? Instead, they’ve spent so much time on the internet, they decided to forego a cake entirely and swap it out for donuts.
The other option is that, wait for it, these two might be cops. Okay, we might be throwing out a stereotype, but that would make this kind of hilarious. What we want to know is, did they cut a donut up or have a mock piece of cake for that?
Newlyweds can’t find cake, cut bananas instead
For even the most experienced scientist, it is difficult to say where exactly the cake starts. We can’t blame the couple for diving straight into the bananas, as there is definitely cake somewhere around there. The whole image is a hodgepodge of unanswered questions, the cake just being the unlucky subject of attention.
Given twenty minutes and only a mound of strawberries, chocolate cake, bananas, and icing, this was Frank Lloyd Wright’s final and most daunting project to date. Everyone looks excited though, so…job well done?
Oh, they meant ‘greatest’
“Did the bride and groom say ‘greatest’ or ‘grayest’ cake you can bake?” Barry the Baker asked himself as he examined his notes. Obviously, greatest is far too broad and unspecific for a couple’s big day, they surely had to have said grayest.
The wedding cake topper was beautiful and just what the bride and groom had asked for. The cake on the other hand, was as colorless as the couple’s faces on the day of their wedding. Better luck next time, Barry.
For sale: furniture wedding cake
Strangely enough, this cake looks more like victorian furniture. Had it not been for the tiered shape of the wedding cake, this would appear as a fine piece of upholstery. The details on the cake-walls are incredibly believable, and the cake looks downright comfy.
It’s a bit dated for the modern and postmodern interior decor of most homes, but it could look nice next to the coffee table. Right, it’s a cake, it’s tough to forget; a cake this convincing must taste good, we’ll take extras home.
Helping Hand Part 2: Requiem
Rest in peace forevermore, a severed cake finger which maketh eyes sore. We’ve seen cakes that looked like they had a child’s helping hand in making it. Here, it is unsettlingly literal. Sure, the design rocks on the outside, until you serve guests a second helping of red-velvet carpal-tunnel.
The cake underneath it is fine and dandy, we’ll have two slices, but the whole image really is just funny to look at and think about. Some cakes really just have you laugh in wonder about what the couples were thinking.
One horrifying mess
We’re not sure what guests would be willing to taste some of that cake. In saying that, it’s rather intriguing to know what that’s actually made out of. For one thing, we just can’t tell whether those big, green circles are pickles, or some other strange food.
We were trying to avoid that weird red bit on the fourth tier, but we can’t help it. Is it supposed to look as if someone has had an accident trying to eat it? This is a weirdly organized mess.
