Not Your Typical Wedding Cakes - Movie Theme and Scrabble Cakes


Last week I had the pleasure of making 2 fun wedding cakes for a wonderful couple. They had a movie-themed wedding whereby they had wonderfully designed posters and invitations, caramel popcorn favours and of course, a movie-themed cake.

Here is the original design that I sketched out for them and the final cake. My favourite parts were making the sugarpaste popcorn and the movie reels.


And here is there movie poster - they called it "A Walk in the Park" because that is where the groom proposed to the bride.

For their second cake, the couple loves playing Scrabble. They asked me to recreate a previous Scrabble Cake and add sugar characters of them and their 2 dogs.

And I was also inspired and made some additional Scrabble cupcakes. Aren't they cute and also worth 8 points!

Wow! Both cakes were excellent! Don't you just love it when brides can step out of the traditional box a little and really have fun with the cake?

Thank you so much ladies!

Beth - The cakes were both alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla with dark chocolate swiss meringue buttercream. The scrabble cupcakes were chocolate sour cream cupcakes.
