Anti Wedding Cakes

I came across a picture of a wedding cake today that I just HAD to mention - I had to look twice before I could even tell that this particular cake was in fact a cake! This got me to browsing to find some of the most creative "Anti Wedding Cakes" (as I found some like to call them) ever. All are incredible and deserve a special tip of the hat. Click on the images to visit their sources.

Can you believe that absolutely everything on this cake (except the couple on top) is edible?

As someone who makes cakes, I have to tell you, this one looks hard to do - but definitely worth the effort. Amazing work by Sylvia Weinstock in New York.
This is the cake made for newlyweds Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert. This cake has officially set the new world record for Biggest Wedding Cake! I don't even want to think about how long this took to make - and what kind of oven they needed! Apparently it weighed over 50 kilograms. I am impressed.
One of the reasons I chose this picture was the look on this chef's face - I would have a similar expression if a bunch of people were about to come and gobble up my work of art.

I couldn't believe that this Steampunk Cake was really a cake - it looks just too real!

I am one step away from trying this one myself, and maybe a Tetris Cake...

This last one isn't actually a wedding cake, but I had to share because of the amazing details Lyndsay has created from fondant icing. She also has a set of My Neighbor Totoro cakes that I adore.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go satisfy a sudden craving for cupcakes...
