As Spring wedding season is just around the corner, I have cake on my brain! We share with you 12 Iconic Wedding Cakes in case cake is on your brain too! 2 are our favorites to round out the list to 12 Iconic Wedding Cakes! If you’re suffering from wedding cake sticker shock you’ll appreciate Elvis and Priscilla’s cake which to create today would cost over $23,000! I had to chuckle at the wedding photo of George Harrison and Patti Boyd, supermodels do NOT get married like this today do they???
David Bowie & Iman
Iman’s Herve Leger gown and Bowie’s Thierry Mugler tux were almost secondary to their cake don’t you think?
Jackie Bouvier and John F. Kennedy
When John F. Kennedy was only a senator, he and Jacqueline Bouvier brought that Camelot style to their wedding. The cake at the time was quite the thing with it’s five layers. Today it seems much less grand!
Zoe Kravitz & Karl Glusman
Zoe + Karl married in 2019 at her father Lenny Kravitz’s 18th century Parisian mansion. Even if low key by Hollywood standards, the event was still filled with stars— and multiple cakes!
Elizabeth Taylor & Conrad Hilton
In 1950 Elizabeth Taylor got married for the first time to Conrad Hilton Jr. (She ended up marrying eight times to seven different men!) In this highlight of social hoopla the cake made a splash!
Priscilla Ann Beaulieu & Elvis Presley
Priscilla and Elvis said I do on a quiet simple style (for the King of rock and roll). But the cake was fit for royalty! That cake, if made today would clock in at about twenty thousand dollars! And you thought your cake was expensive!
Carrie Underwood & Mike Fischer
American Idol Winner and Superstar Carrie Underwood married Nashville Predator hockey star Mike Fisher in 2010 in the style you’d expect. Over the top yet unique, and very beautiful. Check out her cake! It takes a cupcake tower to a new level!
Mia Farrow & Frank Sinatra
Mia married Frank in 1996, true Las Vegas style no doubt! It seems almost ‘homey’ with that pale blue icing saying best wishes!
Pattie Boyd & George Harrison
Pattie Boyd and George Harrison met while filming the classic Beatles movie “A Hard Day’s Night“. The model and the Beatles’ lead guitarist later married in a quick seven-minute ceremony followed by a reception thrown at Harrison’s home. The humble cake fit in perfectly.
Kobe & Vanessa Bryant
Kobe and Vanessa’s cake was, of course Lakers themed. From their 2001 wedding to a heartbreaking end, we mourn with the world.
Princess Elizabeth & Prince Phillip
For fans of The Crown, let’s toss in this stunner from Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Standing at 9 feet tall, this cake is likely bigger than the one at most weddings!
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi
We loved everything about Ellen & Portia’s wedding and the classic and elegant details hold true today. Their cake is so beautiful, don’t you think?
Enjoy the blog…………… and let them eat cake!!
Are you hungry for cake now too? We can’t wait to see your cake, —there is no doubt we want to sneak a piece!
