Super Mario Bros. Wedding Cake by Naera.
Wedding cakes can be both elegant and geeky. If you and your spouse to be can’t decide on whether to have a classically decorated cake or a nerdy pattern, you can have both by splitting the cake’s design in half. This cake by Bittersweet’s captures the concept perfectly. It’s covered in shiny white frosting on one side and Super Mario Bros. on the other. The Super Mario Bros. side is definitely my favorite.
Ant, the owner of Nerdache Cakes, crafted this totally awesome 8-bit wedding cake. It took her “a ridiculous amount of hours” to create over the course of three days. That’s understandable since it was made from 3,000 1-inch, hand-cut squares. I think Ant just won an insane amount of Internet points for this nerdy cake!

When two people enter a marriage, they’re bound to have some different tastes. Thanks to a recent trend in wedding cakes, both husband and wife can express themselves on the same dessert. We’ve seen cakes that are half Batman before, but I love that this treat by Baked with Love is split between a New York City scene showing the moment the couple got engaged and Gotham City. It’s such a cool idea.

Getting married is all about making compromises, and it starts with the ceremony. So, if one half of the couple wants candy on the wedding cake, and the other half wants to feature Doctor Who, you just make it work. Lucy Partridge made this sweet time-traveling dessert, and I like all the adornments on both the candy and Who sides. All it needs is a Fourth Doctor posed beside it with jelly babies.
I love the idea of geek-flavored cakes at weddings, and I never tire of looking at different takes on the same subjects. This dessert by Sweet Frostings Blissful Bake Shop is one of the most classy comic book cake designs I’ve ever seen. It features Wonder Woman and Captain America as cake toppers, and each of the characters has its own layer on the cake. It’s just perfect.

This wedding cake isn’t actually for a wedding, but to celebrate the release of Game of Thrones season three on DVD and Blu-ray in Great Britain. It took Choccywoccydoodah over 20 hours to create the raisin, rum, and chocolate filled cake. Actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the show, got the privilege of cutting the first slice with a giant sword.

Deciding on a wedding cake can’t be an easy task. Even if you can narrow it down to a geeky focus, how do you choose? One couple had no trouble settling on life-sized Dalek cakes. Yes, plural. The bride and groom Dalek cakes made by Dinkydoodle Designs stand at 5 feet tall. I’m stunned. It took the baker and three assistants a whole week to complete the Doctor Who themed cakes for a Whovian wedding. I hope they used a sonic screwdriver to cut the slices!

Wedding cakes can be beautifully decorated and crafted but if they’re plain, you still have cool options. POSHdjs used one couple’s cake as a projection screen of sorts and covered it in Donkey Kong and Dig Dug games. The five square tiers make an ideal surface for the old school games, and I’d be mesmerized by the cake if I were sitting in front of it. This certainly opens the door to new cake decorating possibilities!

Theme parties and weddings are something I can respect. I love going all out and getting every detail right. That said, I think there is a line and this severed heads cake goes right past it. The faces are too freaking lifelike; it creeps me out.
The dessert was served at a wedding at the Alamo Drafthouse and made by the talented Sideserf Cake Studio. I’m not sure if it was a zombie themed wedding or not – maybe they just thought it was a fun idea. In the end, I guess all that matters is that the couple liked it.
