WTF Wedding Cakes

Of course, one cannot scour Google for cake stands and not become obsessed with cakes. And since I am also obsessed by the impending nuptials of a certain bride to be, and because I am somewhat deranged, I spent a little (hour) time looking at wedding cakes. And seriously? People are whacked.
This one? I actually kind of love. A lot.





If you are having a Dr. Seuss themed wedding, what more could you ask for



The captions, not done by me, say it all



Nothing says classy like a good ass grab


Because every bride wants to be compared to a pig on her wedding day


Kind of fun


Kind of gothy


WTF?


Sad commentary. Because this? Would totally be me. Except texting.


Um, okay.


Keeping it fair. One dead bride for every dead groom.


Lots of brides dragging grooms, but no vice versa. hmmmm...


For fans of "Lost" maybe?


Dirty Dancing. You know, if you want to have a Patrick Swayze tribute at your wedding.

UPDATE: After posting this, I found this site of crazy wedding cake toppers. I need to put down the computer now. Before I start planning a vow renewal just so I can top a cake with king kong holding a bride.

UPDATE 2: Custom bobblehead cake toppers, ya'll. Seriously. Not having had one of these, I am not sure that my marriage is even legal.

You fill my life with laughter. :)

I grew up in the wedding business, but I never saw such wild cakes. Are you sure the bloody ones, pushing off a bride or groom, aren't actually to celebrate a divorce?

You know that in addition to my wife getting married, so is my oldest daughter (in June). I'm totally sending my daughter a link to this post. !!!

Also, doesn't the phrase "my wife getting married" knock your socks off? It does mine. :-)

Holly - yes, I am sure some of them are for divorces, but frankly I have known people that were already at that point at the wedding!

Cheri - I think your wife is going to get a restraining order against me if I don't let up on my giddy obsession with her wedding. But? Sqeeee! Also: Twitter Bridal Shower.

Lisa - happy to be of service. You deserve a giggle every now and then now that you're out safeguarding the youth of our community from swine flu and cooties.

Tiffany - you are evil. I had to delete the bookmark for Cakewrecks from my favorites months ago because of the negative impact it was having on my work productivity.

You're a Cake Wrecks, fan, right? Ya gotta be.

I'm resolutely *not* checking out the cake toppers. Must. Not.

I'm Cheri @ blog this mom's daughter (the one who's getting married). Very funny! We are going to build lego people that look like us for the top of our wedding pie.

Those are great! I love www.cakewrecks.com, too. I haven't had to delete the link yet. I like the butt grabbing one. But I'm classy like that. ;0)

OMG...I LOVE the fans of Lost cake!

Those were fun. Now I'm thinking we were boring with our wedding cake:P

If I ever get married, I want the passed-out bride and groom, too.
