HUNTED : { Wedding Cakes – Extraordinary Cakes }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

It’s January. I’m detoxing. Cake is persona non grata.

So, using the one outlet that’s available, if I can’t eat the stuff I can at least post images of it.

Below are examples of extraordinary wedding cakes. You can have your cake and eat it. I can’t.

Extraordinary Cascading Designs

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Extraordinary wedding cake Red White Butterflies

First up, the this creation from the team at the Couture Cake Company. Not only is it red iced, but a rabble of butterflies are flitting their way up the sides. Very impressive craftsmanship.

Special Unusual Wedding Cake Ideas Chocolate Flowers

When it comes to top marks for cake wizardry, Choccywoccydoodah are always up there, as this incredible tower of cascading pansies demonstrates.

Amazing wedding cake ideas peacock theme

Upping the ante from dainty butterflies is this cascading peacock creation. Top marks for the wedding cake creator who made every individual feather (via Project Wedding).

Extraordinary Construction

Choccywoccydoodah wedding cake white chocolate

Once again, we’re back to the extraordinary of the team at Choccywoccydoodah. This “Three Tier Vortex” is an astonishing piece of geometric wedding cake construction.

Unusual Wedding Cake Massive

This wedding cake achieves extraordinary status by being vertically as high as the bride (and horizontally wider). It looks like they’re cutting it with a miniature knife. On the site I found this on the suggestion is that a large wedding cake makes you seem important to your guests. This is a sentiment with which I fervently disagree. But feel welcome to argue in their favour below.

Extraordinary Colours

Wedding Ideas Pink Theme Cake Icing

Uber-girly pastel pink icing? You can count on Martha Stewart for the recipe for this creation.

Wedding Cake Rainbow Bright untraditional

You can’t get much further internally from the traditional fruit cake than this vibrant number. It looks as though someone has iced a rainbow. (image via Tumblr)

Weddings Cakes 2012

Deviating slightly from the solid cakes creation, a gold star for originality has to go to this creation from cake balls. Different flavours and gradiants of peach / citrus – remarkable [ image : Brides ].

Extraordinary Icing

Zebra Stripe Cake Wedding Non Traditional

If you’re a pair of animals, take inspiration from this delightfully over-the-top creation above (via Tumblr) and go zebra prints, turquoise and iced bows.

Non traditional Wedding Cake Black White

Back to something a little more tasteful and this fairytale number via Rosalind Miller Cakes. The time and care that must have gone into that minute detail of the foliage is impressive.

Extraordinary Wedding Cake Ideas Non Fruit

I rarely include imagery from my own wedding, but our cake-maker extraordinaire Lisa Notley did such a fantastic job I’ll make an exception. Not only did she painstakingly apply gold leaf and decorate with wedding flowers, the tiers alternated between carrot and chilli chocolate. We served it for dessert – it was delicious. Photo credits to the wonderful Mister Phill.

Crazy Wedding Cake Gothic Untraditional

There are no end of examples on the world wide web of persons who opted for a truly bizarre wedding cake. At the more zany end of the spectrum I am impressed by the skill that has gone into this Corpse Bride design. The result is gruesomely beautiful. (image via ukweddingshows)

Disney Fantastic Wedding Cake Designs

Taking a similar conceptual idea to the corpse bride cake, but keeping it more traditional Disney, is this fairytale creation. Pastel tiers with precarious leans, flapping birds, kindly godmothers and mice in a teacup make it a cake you’d be extremely sorry to cut into [ image : here ]

Beach Wedding Cake Ideas

From funereal darkness to the sunshine of a beach wedding. Whomsoever made this number has come over all seaside with sand, shells, deck-chairs and a picket fence. Lets just hope for the guests sake that’s not real sand. (photo credit here)

Extraordinary Flavours

Alternative Wedding Cake - Cheese

Finally, I am aware of the existence of a number of wedding cakes that have absolutely no cake basis. The worst of these was a wedding cake made of pork pie. This is truly disgusting. My favourite of all the non-cake varieties is the cheese round cake, probably because I am a cheese monster. It has the double bonus of saving expenditure on an evening buffet. The image above via Green Wedding Shoes is a glorious example.
