When the Kraken attacks: a look at a pirate-themed wedding cake.

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.

When the Custom Cake Design bakery was asked to create a confection perfect for a pirate-themed wedding, they dreamed up this impressive (albeit slightly terrifying) killer Kraken design. This unique design is beautifully executed with an immense attention to detail in the ship and the sea creature.

We are pretty sure this cake is only for true seafaring folk, but it could be a cool idea to consider for a wedding themed around anything from pirates to H.P. Lovecraft!
