Who says you need a three-tiered, traditional-looking cake for your first bite of married life? Sculpted cakes allow couples to express themselves and their shared interests in an edible form. Anyone who's seen "Cake Boss" knows what we're talking about here. A good specialty baker should be able to sculpt a cake to represent anything you want, no matter what you're into.
Couples who want to get their geek on can promote their favorite film or video game through their cake. If you're Star Wars fans, for example, why not commission a cake that looks like the Millennium Falcon? If you met your sweetie in a Halo death match, find a talented baker to create a life-size cake version of Master Chief's helmet. If you're rabid football fans, get your guests to root for your favorite team with a jersey-shaped cake, or, if you're both fiends for Halloween, why not get hitched on All Hallows' Eve with a pumpkin-shaped (and maybe even pumpkin-flavored) wedding cake?
The possibilities are endless, and you don't even have to sculpt your cake into something unusual to make it stand out. Lighthouses, sunflowers or anything else that brings you two together will make a great statement.
