Unique Wedding Cake Photo Showcase!

Whether purchased at a professional bakery or homemade, your dream wedding cake can be incredible and uniquely you. The ideas here are sure to expand your vision of what is possible.

These pictures of cakes are great sources for bakers, brides, wedding planners, friends or mothers of the bride, or anyone planning a future wedding!

Intro photo is a lovely wedding cake named Sweet Avalanche by Vanilla Cake Shop (UK) via Flickr.


Teal Damask

Truly unique! The teal blue fondant color of this wedding cake is just amazing! The charming damask design was made with a stencil.

Created by Stacie, Whimsy Cakes, via Flickr.


Nature Themed Stump and Rustic Log

This tree stump design is made with key lime white chocolate and buttermilk chocolate pound cake (drool).

This creation is so unique and perfect for that outdoor loving couple. Look closely at the fun details! An outdoorsy couple who loves to hike and camp would love this one for a rustic wedding.

EB Cakes makes really lovely, nature-inspired cakes (and more!).

A Nintendo-Inspired Mario and Peach Love Story

What a fun centerpiece for that video gaming couple, right? Think of the fantastic bright colors the wedding reception must have had.

(I wonder if the bridesmaids wore peach?? But then, Princess Peach is wearing light purple on the cake...hmm.)


Mario and Peach Wedding Cake Topper Detail

How fun is this!?

I love this fanciful cake topper!

Mario is on bended knee, proclaiming his love for Peach. At last! We all knew it would happen some day, right?

This charming creation was made in the Netherlands. It's utterly charming and unique for the video gaming bride and groom.


Roses & Lace

Vanilla Cake Shop, in the UK, created this beautiful blush pink wedding cake. Those gorgeous roses were made by the cake decorator. It is easy to see why this incredible cake was chosen as "Editor's Choice" in the October Issue of the magazine, Perfect Wedding!


Sweet Faux Tiered Wedding Cheesecake - Inexpensive, Easy, Delicious and Beautiful!

This lovely wedding 'cake' was put together by my sister and I for one of her daughter's weddings. The flexible stand was borrowed and we purchased pre-made cheesecakes (from Costco) to act as 'tiers.'

The florist delivered reception florals & added fresh flowers before guests arrived.

Extra cheesecake wedges were cut in advance to make serving easy during the reception.

This was a wonderful, delicious, and low cost alternative to an expensive bakery cake. The bride & groom loved the result!

We Used a Stand Like This

Wilton Cakes 'N More 3-Tier Cake Stand, Chrome
Wilton Cakes 'N More 3-Tier Cake Stand, Chrome

These 3-tier party stand are much like the ones we used for the cake above. This versatile stand is great for presentations on any size table, as you set them up as you wish. Wilton is a brand I know and trust, well known for their baking and decorating items.

Alice in Wonderland Wedding Cake

Mad Hatter & Queen of Hearts Alice in Wonderland Wedding Cake

Bright colors, fabulous details, and whimsical touches give this design a real wow factor. I can imagine some pretty fabulous bridal clothing that could go along with this one!

Unique Brown Wedding Cake by Whimsy Cakes

Elegant Brown and Pink Wedding Cake

I love the simple lines of this elegant, yet understated fondant-covered cake.

Brown has become a popular wedding color. Chocolate lovers rejoice! A brown wedding has a special elegance and the pink and gold accents work especially well with this color.

Believe it or not, the cake artist of this fabulous square wedding cake considers cake decorating a hobby! Amazing.

Unique and Beautiful by Scrumptious Cakes

Lilac Wedding Tower by via Flickr, Sarah Rich
Lilac Wedding Tower by via Flickr, Sarah Rich

Now Popular - Wedding Cupcake Towers!

Cupcakes are fun & easy to serve!

Sarah Rich (from says, about this creation:

"The bride and groom were really lovely and just wanted simply pretty cupcakes, with a mix 5 of designs, They also didn't want it to be to uniformed, wanted it to look a little 'home made'

The request for the top cake came later and they left it up to me to decorate it to match in with the cupcakes. It was a mix of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, with a fruit cutting top cake."

I think she did an awesome job!

      I've been married nearly 33 years but I never tire of looking at or eating wedding cake! (Do I really go to weddings just for cake?) Our cake was delicious -- made-from-scratch white with pineapple filling. YUM!

      These wedding cakes are so beautiful that I wouldn't eat any of them, instead, I'd use them as decorating items in the house - well... crossing fingers for no bees to be attracted with their flavour...

      Wow those are some wild wedding cakes - I wonder though how good they taste. It seems when some cakes get loaded up on a marzipan overdose the flavor gets wonky. Fun to look at though.

      Those are spectacular. I have a brother who just got married and has a cool looking cake similar to one of these. He had a wedding cake topper that looked just as cool, I think he got it from Does anyone else out there know where to have cakes like these mailed or is that impossible.

      Yours was the first squidoo lens I ever saw - it came up this morning on digg, I think - and your crooked cake reminded me of the one I baked for myself in 1981 (except it wasn't intentional then) and I was so inspired I made my own lens. And put you on my lensroll. Thanks! Hope you'll come visit...
