At recent cake tastings (yes, our job is so tough), we’ve noticed that more clients are deciding to stray from the classic wedding cake. Creative grooms’ cakes, pies, cake pops, popcorn bars and dessert buffets are gaining popularity. But many traditional brides still see the value in a statement cake. Here’s a look at a few that definitely took center stage.
Although Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were only married for 72 days, the price tag on their cake was $20,000, according toYahoo!. This six-foot-tall, black-and-white tiered cake was reportedly modeled after the Royal wedding cake. Kim and Kris received a pretty sweet deal, as the Royal wedding cake reportedly cost $78,000. Prince William and Kate Middelton’s cake, an eight-tiered cake with about 900 sugar flowers, apparently took more than five weeks to make. (I wonder if it tasted five-weeks old!)
We fully believe that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” And, if you weren’t previously aware, diamonds and cake go well together. Just ask Buddy Valastro (The Cake Boss), who partnered with Devorah Rose for her event “Devorah’s Diamond Gala” to create a cake garnished with diamonds, rubies and emeralds. What’s the price tag for something like this? Oh, just a mere $30 million!
Of course, you don’t need to spend your entire salary (or life’s savings!) on a cake. Just make sure your dessert reflects your personality, whether that be sweet, tart or salty!
