Wedding Cake of the Day: Steampunk Cake

A wedding cake for an industrial couple
Austin Cake Ball

We love seeing what makes a wedding cake really tick!

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.

Some couples just get how their loved one ticks. For those that who appreciate the finer inner workings of a relationship (and those who are into sci-fi) Austin Cake Ball gives you their steampunk cake. This stylized cake was inspired by the sub- genre of science fiction that features steam- powered machinery for a very industrial feel.

Their use of metallic colors and tiny cogs are perfectly accentuated by the delicate, themed butterflies that make up this gorgeous cake ball wedding cake.
