However, if you’re set on serving cake, here are some theme suggestions to make your dream wedding cake more entertaining and memorable for everyone involved.
The world of superheroes spans comics, series, blockbuster movies, b-movies, books, and even paintings. Whether it’s a cake based on a particular comic strip of your favorite superhero, or an Optimus Prime cake that actually transforms from truck to robot, there’s almost no limit to what a “superhero” wedding cake could become. You could also just go with the classic, tried-and-tested Tardis cake. Whatever nerdom you and your soon-to-be-spouse belongs to, this is the opportunity to express it in a sweet way.
Many of today’s marrying-age adults grew up playing games like Monopoly, Super Mario, Tetris, and Pacman – the golden age of interactive, pixelated art. These classic games have even reached beyond their own respective platforms and became inspiration for newer titles across other mediums. The wide range of games on Slingo Slots includes titles based on Monopoly and Tetris. No matter the iteration, classic titles are sure to bring out smiles from the adults who have enjoyed playing them before. Just like the modern world of gaming, you too can look to retro gaming in creating your unique dream wedding cake. What’s an old school game that you and your soon-to-be-spouse used to play or still play to this day? Sugar is especially sweeter when it’s delivered with a good dose of romantic nostalgia.
Here’s a theme that wouldn’t be possible without the meme generation. Which particular aspects of Netflix will inspire your cake? Is it the Netflix logo or show selection itself as a tribute to how your fiancée locked you down with the promise of Netflix & chill? Is it a particular Netflix genre like animation, action, or comedy? Or do you want an exact copy of one of the most hilariously disastrous attempts at baking a cake on the show Nailed It? Show the world your love for Netflix and don’t hold anything back.
Here’s a cake theme that can switch things up without having to deviate too much from classic and elegant traditions. The Telegraph runs down a varied selection of unique, artisanal cakes that can serve as your traditional wedding’s confectionery centerpiece. You can show your love of old churches with a cake that looks like it’s made of stained glass. If you or your significant other loves crystals, nothing beats the geode wedding cake. You can even pick a particular artist’ painting style – like Van Gogh’s – and their popular artworks for inspiration. There are countless ways to put an artistic twist to a classic, elegant, and romantic wedding. This varied theme not only encompasses a wide range of interests, you can also opt for an art style that a local baker specializes in – increasing the chances of coming up with a truly fabulous and artistic wedding centerpiece.
