15 Fresh Wedding Cakes Inspired by Everyday Items

One of our favourite things to do here at Weddingbells is dish out original wedding ideas to inspire your one-of-a-kind celebration. Wedding cakes in particular possess tremendous creative potential; bakers can now create edible works of art to serve as a focal point for the entire reception, prompting couples to unleash their imaginations far beyond red velvet flavouring and quirky cake toppers. With the explosion of wedding blogs and websites like Pinterest and WeddingGawker, brides can now peek behind the doors of unlimited celebrations and we are seeing the results: an accelerated emphasis on personalization and individuality, wedding cakes included. Expressions of hobbies and interests may have once been the exclusive domain of sports-themed grooms’ cakes, but brides are beginning to discover more meaning from confections that tell their story instead of simply matching their bouquet with frosted floral adornments. Wedding cake inspiration may come from a passion such as art or literature, or even a single item, whether significant to the couple or a stylistic inspiration for the overall wedding. Here are 15 insanely original wedding cakes resembling everyday objects, from bird cages to board games, papel picado to gingham aprons, stained glass to shower curtains, 80’s outfits to vegetables, all of which demonstrate the uncanny creativity that has exploded in the world of wedding cakes.
