Most couples just have a nice, normal wedding, with a nice dress, classic wedding cake, and everything is very beautiful, but nice and normal. There are some people, however, that are a little different and unique, and they choose to show their uniqueness through their weddings. There are only so many ways however, to be distinct in your wedding. You've really only got the option of a different dress or a different cake, and a lot of people choose to show their diversity through having a very unique wedding cake.
If you really want your wedding cake to say something different, and you really want to have something at your wedding that your guests will talk about for years to come, you should consider some of these unique wedding cakes for inspiration.
Actor Blair Underwood had an exceptionally unique wedding cake at his wedding. It was a model of the Eiffel tower! It was a six and a half foot affair, with real lights all up and down the tower. This cake has got to be one of the most, if not the most unique wedding cake in the world today. I can only imagine the amount of work that went into it.
One couple had a square wedding cake that had two swans swimming on a pond on top of it, all made out of icing. It was a very elaborate cake, with ribbons and flowers adorning it as well. However, it was only one layer, so some people may not want a cake like this.
Another unique wedding cake one couple had was a "Shrek" cake. This couple must have been big fans of the movie, because their cake was all about the movie, including the Shrek and Princess Fiona figurines on top of the cake! This wedding cake had two layers, and on the bottom layer had an icing design of Donkey and the dragon, the other couple in the Shrek movies!
I have also seen some very unique "box" wedding cakes. I do not mean that these cake were just shaped like a box; one of these wedding cakes was a three layered cake, and each of the layers was decorated like a different present, complete with bows. Another couple had a cake that was shaped and elaborately decorated as an open hat box, with flowers spilling out of it.
One of the most unique wedding cakes that I have seen so far has to be a Chinese wedding cake. It was a three layered red cake, decorated with the most intricate detail and flowers. Another strange wedding cake one couple had was a Phantom of the Opera wedding cake . This one was just one layer, and it was white, black and red, with the white mask sitting on top of black icing, and a red icing "cloth" draped over it.
Another unique and not often used wedding cake idea is a cupcake wedding cake. All you have to do is buy a cupcake tree and bake and decorate cupcakes to place on it.
