Wedding Wednesday: Make your wedding memorable — hang your cake

The wedding cake for Kaley Cuoco, of Big Bang Theory, and Ryan Sweeting, tennis star, was hung upside down from a chandelier. She posted these photos on her Twitter page.One way to make sure guests remember your wedding or at least keep talking about it for weeks is to have an unusual cake. Not necessarily the flavor or the style, but what you do with it.

Try hanging it from the ceiling like a chandelier. That should get people’s attention.

Some couples are choosing to suspend their cakes from the ceiling, or even hanging the cake upside down.

Kaley Cuoco, of the Big Bang Theory, and Ryan Sweeting, tennis star, had a chandelier cake at their wedding. Cuoco Sweeting posted photos of the amazing white cake hanging upside down from a chandelier on her Twitter page. The cake was designed by The Butter End Cakery.

Hanging a cake upside down from the ceiling, a chandelier, a special stand or whatever else it can hang from takes a great deal of planning, design and artistry. Bridal Guide spoke with Cheryl McMillan from Perfect Ending Cakes to find out how a chandelier cake is constructed. “First, she starts with a wood base that’s covered in fondant to match the color and design of the cake. Then, she screws in a wooden dowel that’s one inch longer than the length of the entire cake. Each tier is placed on a masonite board with a hole in the center, draped with fondant, and more plastic dowels are added for support. The tiers are stacked on top of one another and a hook is placed at the top of the dowel, which is hooked onto a veranda flower stand. Voilà!”

Once it’s ready, can you imagine transporting the cake and hanging it?

The Bridal Guide blog gives some other great examples of chandelier cakes. They also show some cakes that are upright but suspended. It’s an interesting idea to help make any wedding unique.
