Celebrity wedding cakes can range from glamorously gorgeous to outrageously ostentatious – but there’s one thing we know for sure – they are never dull.
Celebrities love to do everything bigger and better, and their weddings are no exception.
Spending a fortune on a celebrity wedding cake may make a spectacle that no one will forget, but they’re not always as good as you’d hope.
One of the most extravagant celebrity wedding cakes was had by Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, and Hollywood actress Grace Kelly.
Their 1950s wedding at the Saint Nicholas Cathedral in Monaco was stunning, with the decadent cake playing a starring role.
The couple’s six-tier cake was designed by the pastry chefs of the Hotel de Paris.
When Prince Rainier cut through it with his sword, everyone present was amazed at the sight of two live doves flying out.
But sometimes when it comes to celebrity wedding cakes, bigger isn’t always better.
Instead of having one massive cake, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk opted to have individual cakes.
Guests could choose from the couple’s favourite flavours; either carrot cake or chocolate. These cakes were very minimal – simple sponge cakes with thin icing spread over the top so that the flavour could be seen underneath.
Actors Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra took the cake – pardon the pun – for extravagant celebrity wedding cakes.
Their 2018 wedding cake, believed to have cost $16,717, might be the most expensive cake in celebrity history.
The ambitious pastry creation was seven tiers of cake decorated to resemble a palace, with windows, gold pillars, arches, and a magnificent dome.
It’s a lot of money to fork out for a cake, but when you’re famous you can afford to spend it!
You don’t have to go all-out on celebrity wedding cakes to create a memory that will last a lifetime.
