1.Let's start with a little extravagance, shall we? You know Kaley Cuoco, right? Well, when she married Ryan Sweeting back in 2014, they chose a chandelier cake, as in one that literally hung upside down from the ceiling. It was even decorated with a crystal candelabra!
2.Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were never going to do things by halves, were they? Nope, their wedding cake was seven feet tall (there it is in the background). It was decorated with sheets of gold, because of course, and took three people to carry it into the venue.
3.Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian were so busy on their wedding day, that they didn't actually taste their cake until five months after after the big day! But don't panic, they weren't eating stale sponge — they got a replica cake baked so they could finally see what all the fuss was about.
4.The wedding of David and Victoria Beckham was never going to be a casual affair — I mean, they had actual thrones to sit on. As for the cake? It was...well, it was something. It came topped with a naked sculpture of the pair and was cut with a sword. The newlyweds also wore matching purple outfits for good measure.
5.Princess Diana and Prince Charles had one of the most iconic weddings of all time, so it's only fitting that the cake was a grand affair. Wait, did I say cake? I meant cakes, because there were 27 of them altogether.
6.And although 99.9% of us regular Tom, Dick, and Harry's didn't get an invite to the big day, you can still have a literal slice of action right now. Yep, a piece of Charles and Diana's main cake has just gone on sale for £695. But a word of warning — it's not edible now, so you're just paying for something nice to look at.
7.Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds didn't just have a wedding cake, they had an entire dessert table for people to pick from. The feast included "s'mores bars, blueberry cheesecake tartlets, and lemon tartlets with meringue topping". As for the cake itself, it was "vanilla and sour cream with peach apricot preserves and Early Grey-milk chocolate buttercream" — now that's a mouthful.
8.Although Chrissy Teigen and John Legend ended up with a four tier carrot cake for their wedding, that wasn't actually the original plan. Before the wedding took place, Chrissy revealed that the couple were going for a "multi-layer cake" that had "layers and layers of crêpe and pastry creme in between with raspberry sauce".
9.Michael Douglas And Catherine Zeta Jones' cake, a 10 tier vanilla and buttercream concoction, set them back a casual $7000, but fun fact — the top two tiers had to be removed just so they could get it through the door.
10.Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky chose a gluten-free wedding cake that stood five feet tall. It was decorated with 1000 flowers and apparently weighed 500 pounds. The cost for that colossal dessert? $11,000.
11.And they weren't the only couple to choose something "free from" — Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi went with a vegan red velvet cake, which accompanied their all vegan spread.
12.Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's squad of children were a big part of their wedding back in 2014, and this included the cake. Their son, Pax, who was nine years old at the time, baked it with friends, decorating it with pastel flowers.
13.Flowers were a big part of Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello's wedding cake, which was a five tier quilted design. Just look at it!
14.But like Blake and Ryan, Sofia and Joe weren't going to just serve one cake. For their wedding rehearsal the night before, they made sure there was a whole buffet table of different cakes for guests to try.
15.Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto's $10m wedding day included a seven tier white rum wedding cake that was covered in sugar crystals and crystal brooches. Just so the guests were in no doubt as to who the cake belonged to, their monogram was on display on the top layer.
16.Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, from Dancing with the Stars, chose to decorate their cake with hundreds of pearls, as well as floral detailing.
17.The wedding of Prince Rainier III and Grace Kelly was always going to be a grand affair, and their cake was basically six tiers of edible art. The base of the cake was a replica of Monaco's pink palace, and every other layer had a reference to a part of Monaco's history. As for the top of the cake, a replica of the crown of Monaco was suspended above the heads of two cherubs.
18.And just to make sure everybody got to try the extravagant cake, after it was cut with a sword (apparently the only way to cut a cake), it was put into individual boxes that were tied with gold cord and given to guests. Each box was also decorated with white and gold rope and the initials R and G.
