It’s your wedding day, the day that each and every single bride dreams of from when she is just a little girl playing house and dress up, to the day she finally says her vows. As a married woman, I can honestly say that there is no other special day in your life that quite compares to the day you say ‘I do’ to the man of your dreams.
However, there are many things that can ruin your blessed event, such as a drunk bridesmaid for instance, or a torn dress, or even (heaven forbid) a totally botched wedding cake! As strange it sounds, some people who are entrusted to bake and deliver the most sacred of cakes do in fact manage to cock-up in the most unbelievable ways. What’s even worse, they still have the guts to actually deliver those blunders to the unsuspecting bridal pair!
See below for 22 epic wedding cake failures, found at various sources all over the internet, that would make any bride cry (and I am not talking tears of joy here).
Roses are red
On the left hand side of the picture above we can see a beautiful white fondant, three tiered cake carefully draped with fresh red rose petals. To the right of the image, we can see the flopped attempt at creating the elegant cake on the left. If you look even more closely at the botched attempt, you will notice what looks to be maidenhair fern leaves, randomly placed all over the cake as well; why anyone would do something like this is beyond me however.
Flowers, flowers, everywhere!
Green cake fit for a queen
A pretty lace effect cake
As you can see above, the original cake design featured a very elegant, four tiered light green fondant cake with lace effect edging. What the bridal party received however, was the blue and green mess to the right.
My heart belongs to you
Leaning tower cake
Yellow, yellow you lucky fellow
I somehow cannot see how any bride would wake up saying; “hmm I think I’ll have my wedding cake made yellow (and lopsided)”. Therefore I think we can safely assume the cake pictured above was a royal flop.
Lopsided in brown and beige
Ribbon cake VS play dough
Pretty floral cake (NOT)
Another ribbon effect gone wrong
Gardening or wedding?
The sushi and birdie cake
The WTF cake
Lopsided word explosion
Seashells and sand
Purple and green canary cake
Shiny brown cake
Close but no cigar
The best for last
Lastly we have the three tiered wonder above that was ‘duplicated’ into something that looks absolutely nothing like the original. In fact, there is no similarity between the cakes whatsoever. I am sure the bride at this wedding was more than surprised to say the least.
