Amazing, Creative, Crazy Theme Cake Design and Decoration Ideas

Updated on July 20, 2012

Fantastic Cake Designs

When I found a number of these cakes online, I was amazed, as a number of the the creative cake designs didn't even seem to be cakes. And the cake designs were so good I wouldn't have known it was a cake unless I was told. You'll see that when you look at some of the photos.

What most of us wouldn't have done to have one of these novelty cakes at one of our birthday parties or important milestones or occasions.

All of these cake designs express something unique which most of us will identify as soon as we see it, as the theme cakes mirror all sorts of other things in our lives like a movie character of some sort, or maybe something we collect.

In other words, if we enjoyed it in some other person or thing in the past, we'll definitely appreciate it or them as a designer cake.

Now what that says about the person who is connected somehow to this outstanding scorpion cake design theme is beyond be, but it sure looks fantastic.

Scorpion Cake Design

Cake Designed as Roulette Wheel

This cake designed as a roulette wheel obviously had to take a lot of patience and the cake designer had to have a lot of talent.

Even that downwards slope toward the middle would have challenged me; not even taking into consideration the numbers and design included in this unique cake. I like it.

Nightmare Cake

Now here's a real theme cake for anyone that watched this show. It's called, appropriately,the nightmare cake, for obvious reasons. Picture that being made by your in-laws for your wedding. Think they'd be trying to tell you something?

Human Body Cake

I thought the detail and work of this cake was so awesome, that I put it on larger than some of the others.

It's extraordinary the artistry and creativity applied in these cake decorations. I wonder how much time it took to do this one. However long it took, I'm glad I got to see this tasty cake work of art.

Death Cake or showing who's the boss?

Ok buddy, it looks like you didn't read the fine print or needed to spend a little more time getting to know your fiancé. Or maybe this was the day you told her to she wasn't going to get a cent from you.

You're right, hehe, she got all of it.

This wasn't a difficult cake to make, but it was humorous in its own sort of way.

Of course we could ignore the poor guy and talk abou the exquisite design of the flowers on the side ..., never mind.

Is this a wedding or divorce cake?

Life-sized Wall-E Cake

Now tell me this Wall-E cake isn't amazing. Even when you look at it several times you're not sure it's a cake or a toy sitting there.

The actual inclusion of the marks and wear on his metal make this one one of the best cake decorating ideas I've seen.

How About a Cupcake Cake Design?

Now if the words special occasion and extravagant don't come to mind when you look at this cake, I don't know what cake would make them come to you.

This designer cake ( I can't think of anything else to describe it) is so full of detail, it definitely gives you the impression of being very busy. But even so, it's an very creative cake that had to have been put together by someone with sure hands. It looks delicious doesn't it.

Cake of Rats Eating Arm

While this crazy and unique novelty cake was very well done, and would have been really difficult to do, you do have to wonder who thinks out loud suddenly, "Oh, I have an inspiration to make a cake of some rats eating a guys' arm.

Who knows the occasion, but you can have the first bite. Really! I don't mind at all.

Now Who Thinks of a Rat Eating an Arm Cake?

Just a Fun and Enjoyable Designer Cake

You've got to look at this one close to see all the parts that make up the whole. While it looks simply in design, it really is more complex than it looks, and the genius is in making it look simple, while being so detailed.

Great cake decorating idea and design.

Lord of the Rings Cake

Being a major Lord of the Rings fan, I can't give an unbiased opinion on this cake, but it is superlative, magnificent and gnarly (that didn't fit did it). You get the point.

This is a great creative cake decorating idea and designer cake. I can't even begin to imagine the work that went into this.

If it had been made for me, I would've found some way to preserve it. It's just too cool to eat.

Cake Decorating Inspiration

Hopefully this gave you a lot of enjoyment and amazement at the creativity that can be applied to cake decorating, and the amazing cake ideas floating around out there.

More than that though, these are cakes that went from idea to reality, and the results speak for themselves.

The idea behind all this article is to stir up some ideas so you can maybe get inspired from the variety of ways shown here to make your own unique cake, or possibly generate ideas you can show or tell to someone else in order to have them an amazing cake for you..

      The cake you feature with the two bridges with the bridesmaids and groomsmen on each side, i actually picked up a book in my local second hand clothes/ goods store and this was one of the feature designs that the book taught you how to make, all of it is edible except the people, and the stands to hold the tiers.. the bridge is all lace work done with royal icing, it's an old book from the 60's or 70's but can you imagine the work and time!! that would've been the kate middleton/ prince william cake of its time!!

      I am forever in awe of the cakes that some people create and there are some beauties here. Being a Lord of the Rings fan too, I think that is my pick of the ones you've shown. Not too sure about the Rats Eating Arm cake though - not very appetising at all.

      i love decorating cakes, not that im on the level of expertiece shown here, but i've a cake that looked like a victorian doll(and it wasn't one with a barbie shoved in the top, i made it all) and my mums wedding cake, it was a simple white with cornelli lace ordail but now i think the cake with the stabbed husband would be more fitting
