Best 8 Really Big Wedding Cakes! #dreamcake

My favorite eight, really big wedding cakes:

Goldi12

Topping my list is Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera’s 12 foot, 265 pound wedding cake with Swarovski crystals and 3D-mapping for projected computer graphic effects.  While the cake is not as detailed as the castle one below, it still tops my list.  I had a little trouble deciding between the two, however my final opinion is that this is the BEST really large wedding cake I’ve seen so far.  Basically it comes down to a show of really cool computer graphics projected onto the cake that beautifully ends with the words, “Forever begins today.”  How do you top that?  The video below does not show the whole projectile, but please watch it.  It’s so nice!

My second favorite cake is Indonesian actress Chelsea Olivia Wijaya’s castle cake. Chelsea had a fairytale wedding theme, and as far as fairytale weddings are concerned this cake is a dream!  The cake is completely edible and beautifully sculpted into a castle complete with towers, flags, balconies and two stair-cases that meet at the bottom to almost form a heart shape.  The flowers at the bottom of the cake add a delicate touch and go nicely with the overall theme.  The amount of detail in this cake is very impressive.

Angelababy’s wedding cake is my 3rd favorite.  Her wedding was amazing!  It requires a whole blog post of it’s own.  The 8 foot tall, 9 layer cake made by 1001 Bakery was delicately detailed with fondant bows, ribbons and over 2000 flowers including roses.  The best part was a carousel placed in the middle of the cake that actually rotated!

Fourth on my list is the Cinderella carriage wedding cake of NFL player Ryan Pickett and his wife, Jennifer.  The cake was created by Houston Texas’ most notable cake design studio, Who Made the Cake!  This uniquely designed cake features draping, bows and flowers on the top five layers.  The carriage wheels have crosses for spokes and an angel sits upon the top of the cake. The bride and groom had requested the cake include a carriage, angel wings and crosses.  I think the cake designer did an amazing job of incorporating all that into one exquisite cake!

Next on my list is Yvonne Arifin and Albert Sudewo’s giant eight-tiered flower-draped wedding cake.  This cake is one of my favorites because it looks like a traditional wedding cake, except it’s really huge!  It’s not real extravagant but it’s beautiful.  The pink and white flowers were coordinated with the ballroom decor where the cake was center-stage and surrounded by cherry blossom trees.

Gozy Ekeh and Tolu Ijogun are said to have had the most expensive wedding in Nigerian history.  It was quite lavish!  Their elegant all white, 10 tier wedding cake makes #6 on my list.   The cake was created by Buttercup Enterprises.  Every other layer featured all white roses while the alternating layers were embellished with quilting, pearls and lace detail.

#7 on my list is the 10 ft tall wedding cake of Russian Heiress, Marina Shokirova. The cake was designed by former boxing champion, now celebrity cake maker, Renat Agzamov.  Precise detailing is what makes this cake so impressive.  It has six regal tiers and is topped with a gazebo.  The cake is adorned with delicate flowers, embellished with three dimensional columns and balcony, and personalized with the couple’s initials.

Ali Awada and Lana El Sahely’s  seven-tier, tulip, jasmine, and camellia covered wedding cake was created by Nazira Catering and places at #8 on my list.  The best thing about this cake is that it fits in perfectly with the theme of the wedding.  If you look at the photos you’ll notice the cake, the wall, and even the bride’s veil are embellished with ivory flowers.  I love this soft, romantic look.

The Royal Wedding of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera

Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera are TV superstars from the Philippines. In 2014 they were married at the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral in Quezon City in a ceremony fit for royalty.

(This was way better than Kim Kardashian marrying Kris Humphries.  Plus their marriage already lasted longer than her marriage to Kris so…yeah.  Her wedding doesn’t even count anymore).

Okay, so I ran across this beautiful event while searching for ‘huge wedding cakes,’ which I plan to blog about real soon. That search brought me to this photo:

When I saw this cake I was like, “Wow! Who is this couple? They must be rich. Look how beautiful!”

As it turns out, this was the wedding of a power couple in another country.  To give you an idea of just how extravagant this was, let’s begin with mass.  The mass was celebrated by eight bishops and seven priests.  The guests included several celebrities.  The wedding party consisted of 18 bridesmaids, 18 groomsmen AND the president of their country was the groom’s best man! (President Benigno Aquino III was the president at the time).

Marian’s romantic wedding gown was designed by Dubai-based international designer, Michael Cinco.  The ballgown featured embroidered French lace embellished with Swarovski crystals, a cinched waistline, and a cathedral train.

On top her head Marian wore a crown inspired by Queen Elizabeth’s Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara.

I have provided a short Youtube video of the “Royal Wedding” below.  Followed by photos of the wedding taken by www.niceprintphoto.com.   It looks like the perfect wedding. Amazing!  You have to watch the video.
