Cake love: a giganotosaurus homemade wedding cake of pork pies and cheese


Pork pie and cheese wedding cake

I have been overwhelmed by a stack of beautiful wedding cake pictures for my Cake Love feature, so picking today’s has been difficult.  Anyway, after much umming and aahing I’ve settled for this magnificent ‘cake’ of pork pies, cheese, and a fruit cake.  Wow.  And all made by a mommy (I must note here that I am not American, I am English, but spent a couple of years living in America when I was younger and my mum decided she preferred being a mom, so that’s the tale behind that one).

Back to cake – this cake it just beyond words really and speaks for itself.  Not only did was this cake homemade, you’ll notice the pies have quotes on them written in pastry, and in the middle is a small piece of a tree branch bearing the couples initials.  Never underestimate the baking and crafting skills of family and friends!

Oh my goodness, this is immense, I love it! Love the way it leans, the cake topper, the beautiful flowers decorating it, the quotes in pastry! Did it need scaffolding to build?
Might have to try creating one of these myself!
Good choice Charlie, thanks for sharing.

I can’t imagine how they got it stand up straight – there’s no way I would attempt such a creation, but isn’t it wonderful! Best of luck in attempting it yourself :)

That is so amazing. At first I imagined all the flavours and their combinations and went ..hmmmmm then got really full and needed a lay down. Imagining a little too hard maybe?

Hehe :) Yes, perhaps imagining a little too hard, although I’m sure as a guest at this wedding you wouldn’t have been required to eat it all on your own x
