Wedding cakes are an art form — an edible art form for that matter. And for many brides, the wedding cake is just as important as the dress and bouquet on their big day. A wedding cake is not something that is simply eaten and forgotten; it makes a statement with how good it looks, how great it tastes, and it reflects the bride and groom as a couple.
Nowadays, with cake and bake shows galore, it’s the creative, out-of-the-box cakes that catch everyone's attention. These extravagant and mouthwatering must-haves come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and themes — each taking the art of the cake to the "next level," so to speak. With this in mind, The Daily Meal has decided to choose a wedding cake of the day, highlighting the ones that are the most eye-catching, expensive, outrageous, funny, classic, unique, and even, disastrous — all while even taking an occasional look at notable wedding cake-toppers, too.
View our selections as encouragement to give baking a try or let them serve as mere entertainment, but let each cake of the day inspire you and show you what a little imagination and a lot of sugar can do.
In the words of Marie Antoinette, let them eat (wedding) cake — on with the list!
