This pair decided to relive their best Parisian memories — through photos and fondant by San Diego's The French Gourmet. As they cut a slice, they were talking a walk down memory lane and taking a bite out of the future.

    The Giving Tree
    Description

    Inspired by The Giving Tree, the beloved children’s book by Shel Silverstein, this is not your ordinary wedding cake — or tree stump. Outfitted with the couple’s initials carved into the bark and a replica of the bride’s bouquet, the cake, crafted by Tiffany’s Baking Company, is a nod to the couple’s occupation as elementary school teachers, and is an unexpected, but delightfully memorable, alternative to more traditional cakes.

    Día De Los Muertos
    Description

    You wouldn’t expect to see a cake covered in flames — or topped with skeleton figures, for that matter — at a wedding. It's kind of sinister. But for one couple getting married on Día de los Muertos, in a cemetery nonetheless, this cake created by Rosebud Cakes was a fitting tribute to those who couldn’t be with them on the special day.

      For those who didn’t make it across the pond (or even those that did) to witness the royal wedding last year, create one of your own! Map out the cake like Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s wedding party and roll like the royals.

      This four-tiered cake by Pink Cake Box will spell out what’s important in its four tiers. This bride and groom, who played Scrabble with each other while the groom was stationed in Iraq, put all their tiles down on love.

      This cake from the Costa Mesa, Calif., shop Christopher Garrens illustrates the different personalities of a bride and groom (heels vs. sneakers; champagne vs. beer). We're wondering how the sides keep from toppling over.

          A couple bonds over common interests, this couple bonded over video games. What better way to portray it then with the quintessential prom king and queen of the console — Super Mario and Princess Peach?

          Into extreme sports? This couple, too. No novices to a little speed and uphill battles, they used a play on words with a sign that reads, "It’s all downhill from here." No truer words have been spoken — just kidding!

            Houston bakery Rise and Shine walked into the world of Technicolor when they made this cake. No, no, don’t be fooled — those aren’t Skittles — each little ball is a different-hued piece of fondant. Talk about ombré.

            Some may say that the big day is all about the bride — we, here at The Daily Meal beg to differ. A wedding is a joint celebration; it’s about two people. Though if you love a good wedding dress, maybe this mannequin is for you.
