Today's wedding cake has come a long way from the traditional tiered white iced fruit cake. Thanks to the open minded couples who want something "different", cakes now come in a variety of shapes, sizes, designs and colors. And why have white or pound cake, when there’s the choice of carrot cake, angel food cake or cheesecake in a myriad of flavors, coupled with different fillings, toppings, icings, and frostings. And whose to say you have to have cake to begin with? those of you who don't just want cake!
First, the rule of thumb . . . "if you can stack it .... you can make it." The basic premise of all of the cakes below is to stack your medium (i.e., cupcakes, twinkies, donuts or even cheese) and then embellish. You can embellish with cake tops, icing flowers, ribbons, sprinkles or any other item you may want to place on your cake. The sky is the limit in regards to creativity with these cakes. :
Those spongy creamed- filled cakes have taken on a new role thanks to Hostess baking expert Theresa Cogswell. Cogswell created the Ribbons and Bows Twinkie Wedding Cake, Mr. and Mrs. Twinkie Tiered Twinkie Cake, Twinkie Wedding Day favors and more. The Twinkies are wrapped in fondant (a pliable icing) and decorated or frosted. Other than the Twinkies — you’ll need 27 of them for the wedding cake — some other supplies are needed to make and assemble the cakes, including cardboard cake rounds and a prepared cake mix. (For detailed instructions on how to make Twinkie cakes:(The Twinkies Cookbook: An Inventive and Unexpected Recipe Collection from Hostess)

If you are a knitter .... and that's your thing, you should definitely check out the "Knitted Wedding." Everything at this wedding was knitted. This
included cameras, the gown, the food, the cake and decorations. The bride is curator of the exhibition ‘Ceremony’, and Knitting Doctor, Freddie Robins. All knitters and their friends were invited to the wedding. Guests were allowed to knit through the reception. People were allowed to send knitted items in to the couple and requested to have their names attached totheir project. Why?" you ask. Because this all will be shown later in a book called, “ How to Knit Your Own Wedding” published by ‘Cast Off’. For more pictures, ideas and treats visit their website: CastOff.com
Oh and if you want knitting patterns, Cast off offers those too. A few samples are below: Please click the links below to download the knitting patterns as Word documents.

Isn't this just the sweetest gown ... pun intended : ) There are 478 cupcakes in the dress. This is from a photography exhibit in Australia called “Shoot the Chef.” A full, multicolored cupcake gown. The flowers - roses and gerberas, mainly - were all fresh. The "skirt" took about three hours to build. It was an exercise in putting a lot of beautiful elements together to explore the idea of femininity.
I would want two of these... one to eat and one to wear. And, I bet
it's a safe bet this doesn't come in a size 10 : )
