So I’ll start off by saying, in no way, shape or form am I alluding to any type of monumental milestone in my own life. Not for current discussion anyway. However I happened to stumble across the most incredible wedding cake that I had ever seen in the form of a dress. Seeing this gown made me investigate deeper to see if there was any competition that could come remotely close to this level of art.
First I found Cake Central’s wedding dress cake which had a one shoulder, simple yet elegant number with minimal embellishments. They even went as far as listing instructions which is pretty amazing. I’m just not sure what bridezilla would have a fraction of the time or remaining brain cells left to make their own wedding cake…

Then there was the beautiful ballroom, princess gown piece made by Cakes We Bake with a very simple yet classy, dusted sugar layer for its finish.

..But my wedding cake dress investigation didn’t end there.. As I looked and looked and looked, I became far more intrigued with this idea of a wedding cake shaped like a bridal dress. It was and still is absolutely fascinating. Being in the single world for so long, you simply don’t think about things like this. So the next couture mega pastry I came across was from Christina Smith. Her detailing was more on the draping side than flat patterns and embellishments. The draping was that of a Valentino, Dior or Lacroix pattern. It was truly one of the most beautiful pieces I had seen.

I then discovered a piece with a very pre-dark Alexander McQueen feel to it at Perfect Wedding Day. Being that he has always been one of my favorite fashion designers, it’s very difficult to not get completely distracted from the ultimate cake, which was the inspiration behind this wedding cake blog entry in the first place. None-the-less, it is a very, very well thought out and well constructed couture piece..

After seeing Christina Smith along with a Perfect Wedding Day and the other extraordinary pieces, one would find it hard to believe that there was a cake that was yet even more stunning. So beautiful that I wouldn’t for the life of me be able to imagine someone at one point cutting it during the reception….

This stunning work of art from Foodista almost brought me to tears. I can’t begin to imagine how many hours or work was put into this breathtaking piece of edible art. The intricate detailing in the lifesize bodice is remarkable. Even up to the top where the cake almost identically resembles that of a regular dress form. This is truly the world’s most amazing wedding cake in the form of a bridal gown that I’ve ever seen. I searched and searched for the sculptor and only found several links that used the image. So for now, we have no choice but to label the cake designer as anonymous. If I’m ever blessed to have something like this at my own wedding, you guys will be the first to know. That is a promise..
