Nowadays people are thinking out of the box when it comes to their wedding and their wedding cakes. Although the traditional cake is still popular, it is now in different shapes and sizes. Some people are not even having a “cake” but are serving cheese cake or even an oreo stacked cake. We have seen castle shaped wedding cakes, car shaped cakes, and even mobster style. You are limited only by your imagination so have some fun!

Here is a growing list of some of our favorite ideas:

5. Disney Animated Cake for your Disney Fairy Tale Wedding

Absolutely Amazing Animated Cakes by Disney

With this new, customizable image mapping technology that turns a wedding cake into a Disney animated cake. Whether couples showcase a photo slideshow, home video or a favorite quote, the frosting base is re-imagined into an enchanting canvas. Using a projector and motion sensors a moving image is projected on a blank slate of the wedding cake making it come alive with each couple’s unique story.

Disney-themed options for the interactive cake are endless too, including fireworks over Cinderella Castle, Tinker Bell sprinkling pixie dust over iced tiers, or Cinderella’s carriage and horses galloping around the cake’s exterior.

The cake-mapping option is available for couples booking the Wishes Wedding Collection at Walt Disney World Resort.

6. How to Make 3-D Contoured Wedding Cake Cookies (Part 2)

Prefer Cookies to Wedding Cake -This is a beautiful and creative idea!

I’m back with Part 2 of my 3-D contoured wedding cake cookie video! An unexpected alternative to traditional cake!

In this segment, I put all of the pieces together into four-tiers of cookie magic. Specifically, I show how to assemble the two cookie sides and base to form one tier (or a simple basket, if you’d rather skip all four tiers). Then I demonstrate how to conceal the seams with gorgeous cookie flowers and share two options for stacking all four tiers – bottom to top, or top to bottom. Though, admittedly, bottom to top is the easiest approach!

YouTube is phasing out the form of annotations (links to videos) that you’ve seen in my past videos. They’ve introduced a new way for linking off to related videos and sites called “cards”, which you’ll see in this video. If you look under the “i” in the upper right corner of the video, you’ll be able to find all of my quick links to the most important videos, tutorials, and other info related to this video. Additional related links can still be found in my video descriptions, as below.

IF YOU LIKE THIS VIDEO, please give it a like and subscribe to/follow my channel. It is only through your support that I can afford to make more videos. THANK YOU!

8. Alice and Wonderland Theme cake

This enchanting homage to Lewis Carroll’s signature story is an absolute delight. Three topsy-turvy tiers combine to create an off-kilter tower that would be right at home in that land Alice discovered when she decided to take the risk and go “down the rabbit hole”. The tiers are alternately decorated, utilizing a “Harlequin-esque” diamond motif on the bottom and top layers, in red and black, then blue and black. The middle one is a bright turquoise blue with bold black stripes. The White Rabbit’s pocket watch is prominently displayed and the Cheshire Cat lounges on the bottom tier, trademark smile in place. The entire work rests on the Red Queen’s black and white checkered chessboard, where Alice curtsies. Hand-crafted flowers are strategically placed and embellished by springy wire curlicues. The numerals atop this work carry the checkerboard design from the base to the top. “Alice’s Wonderland” will have everyone wondering if they’ve accidentally stepped through the looking glass.
