Carl and Ellie Fredricksen Wedding cake

Carl and Ellie Fredricksen are the star couple on this cake. I like the way Tracey used their chairs to represent them as the wedding cake topper.

When you see Carl later in life, he still has the chairs where he and Ellie spent many hours of their lives together.

In addition, if you look closely at the top of the curvy hill from Nightmare Before Christmas, you can see Carl’s house with the balloons coming out of the chimney.


Hobbit-Hole cake tier

The bottom of there cake is decorated to look like a Hobbit- hole. It has the round door and round windows. 

The middle tier gives a nod to Harry Potter.  A patronus shaped like a deer is in the center. The words Until the very end are above it.  

Those words make me think of Carl remembering Ellie until the very end and or how much he loved her.

If you look up in the tree, you can see a golden snitch.

Tracey has a splendid tutorial on how she made Carl and Ellie’s chairs.

Art Deco Batman Wedding Cake made by Little Cherry Cake Company

Today is Batman Day! To celebrate, throughout the day, I’ll be sharing four of my favorite Batman Cakes. The 2nd cake of the day is this gorgeous Art Deco Batman Wedding Cake which I first shared in 2017.

I’ve seen gorgeous Art Deco cakes, but this is the only one I’ve ever seen that features Batman.  This is an absolutely stunning cake.

This elegant Batman Wedding Cake is a three tiered cake with the Gotham cityscape on the bottom tier, the Bat-symbol in gold on the middle tier and black bats flying across the top tier. There are two black feathers on the top of the cake. There are stylized gold patterns of lines surrounding the golden Bat-symbol. The Gotham buildings are black with a few golden lights in the windows. This wonderful wedding cake was made by Little Cherry Cake Company.

Batman Wedding Cake

This stunning Batman Wedding Cake was made by Vanilica Cake Shop. I’ve been privileged to make a super hero themed wedding cake. It is really challenging because you have to find the right balance between geeky and elegant.  This cake does an amazing job at balancing both. 

I love the simplicity of the design. Because the cake isn’t too busy, your eyes are drawn to the silhouette and the balloons.  Since the cake is white, you barely even notice the actual cake. This is so much harder to do than it looks. Since you want the cake to fade into the background, your fondant has to be flawless. Any imperfection will stand out.  Since your eyes are drawn to the silhouette, it has to be perfect. I really like how the balloon strings continue on the top tier. The image of the bride in her wedding dress and Batman facing her with one arm around her is wonderful. It strikes the balance I was talking about before wonderfully.

The use of color on this cake is terrific. What’s black and white and red all over? This lovely cake. The only color on the cake is red, the color most associated with love and romance.  Notice the tiny ribbon of red around the bottom of the cake. That is the only red on the bottom layer and helps tie the two layers together.

If you can’t tell by all my gushing, I absolutely love this cake!
