When it was time to pick a cake design for their wedding, one UK couple ran into a dilemma: the bride wanted a traditional cake, while the groom wanted to have a superhero theme. Uh-oh. So what did they do? They made a compromise, of course!
On their big day, newlyweds Kia Parsons and Billy Bunning’s cake was shown to have a traditional look with floral patterns and fondant pearls. But once you peek at the back, it’s revealed to be a cast of superheroes – like Batman, Captain America, Spider-Man, and Iron Man – draped by a cape of white icing. Absolutely clever!
The cake was created by Julia Baker of ‘Tier by Tier’ in time for Kia and Billy’s August 14 wedding. According to her, it took 40 hours to make the entire thing, with 12 hours spent on the flowers and the remaining 28 hours on baking and building.
And what’s a superhero cake without having some secret identity? ‘From most angles of the room, the cake looked like a traditional wedding cake – just what we had wanted. It wasn’t until the cake was moved for us to cut that our guests realized there was a hidden extra’, the bride told the Huffington Post. ‘Some didn’t even realize until the photos went online after the wedding!’
