Costco Is Selling A Wedding Cake Made Entirely Of Cheese Wheels

A wedding cake is one of the most universal symbols of new love, and picking the perfect one can really set the tone for the rest of the marriage. That’s why there are so many flavors and designs to appeal to every personality and preference under the sun.

For all the dairy lovers ready to embark on a lifetime of love (and artisanal cheese), Costco is offering a wedding cake that’s sure to send any cheese-loving couple off to a fantastic start.

The Cheese Lover Celebration Cake is made up of gourmet cheeses from around the world, and totals about 24 pounds of dairy from top to bottom, all at a cost of $440.

This cake is comprised of five cheeses: Red Leicester, Danish Blue, Murcia al Vino, Tuscan Sheep’s Cheese, and Brilliant Savarin Triple Cream Brie. You can store each individual wheel in the fridge until you’re ready to assemble them and decorate them.

Each cake serves approximately 105 to 150.

Hopefully you won’t need to present a marriage license in order to snag this mountain of cheese. I would love to just pop a Lactaid pill and just dive into this bad boy on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

A Super Simple Guide to Designing Your Wedding Cake, from Top to Bottom [Infographic]

wedding cake

There’s an infographic for everything these days – choosing a flavor of wine, how to make a pizza, even a periodic table of alcohol and a Thanksgiving etiquette infographic exist. So it should come as no surprise there are infographics on how to help you build your dream wedding cake.

The infographic guides you on choosing a wedding cake, from shape to flavors to design.

You start out basic with the general shape – round, square, heart – and then move on to type and filling where things get a bit more complicated.  From fruitcake to cheesecake to chocolate, the possibilities are endless. The infographic does provides some guidance as to which filling goes best with what you’re doing; for example, if you’re having a summer wedding go with a zingy lemon sorbet. Want to be luxurious? Go for Belgian chocolate.  Next, decorations range from icing and gems to shimmer and piping. Last but not least, cake toppers — an actual photograph of the two of you made out of something edible or the infamous plastic figurines that are meant to look like you and your betrothed. Take your pick.

As Franck in Father of the Bride explains, it’s the cake that more often determines what kind of wedding that you’re going to end up having. So check out the infographic, and choose the cake wisely.

If Your Wedding Doesn’t Include this Sushi Cake, You’re Doing Marriage Wrong

sushicakebig

The only thing better than a sushi wedding cake is sticking it to the haters who can’t handle the glory of your fish-infused wedding celebration. I came across this sushi masterwork as the #1 entry on a Worst Wedding Cakes list, and was actually pretty outraged that something this perfect got stuck on any kind of diss list. If you’re one of the people who’d reject a sushi cake over the frosting-heaped alternative, allow me to lay out exactly what you’re missing.

Fish is a natural aphrodisiac, so gorging yourself at the buffet table will only increase your chances of an A+ honeymoon. It’s true that your more conservative relatives might be a bit shocked by the eccentricity of a salmon-themed dessert dish, but you know they’ll be Instagramming that sh*t like the “share” button is a life preserver in a sea of rapidly hardening fondant. And if the sushi is particularly tasty? You’ll be the social media darling of everyone’s Facebook newsfeeds. Plus, sushi is effing delicious, environmentally friendly, and will keep you smart well into old age.

But hey, if you’d rather spend your wedding night snoring atop an enormous pile of shattered expectations, go ahead and order the chocolate cake with tiers of buttercream frosting. It’ll make for some sleepy and sluggish sexcapades, bore everyone to tears in the traditional “cutting the cake” photos, and your great aunt Muriel will be able to tell everyone that she could bake a better one while knitting with both hands tied behind her back. Personally, I’d go with sushi, but it’s your sex life.

Step-by-step instructions to the sushi cake of your dreams can be found over at RobertandChristina.com.

This Super Mario Bros. Cake is Bowser Approved

Oh. My. GOOMBA.

This Super Mario Bros. themed cake is one of the most gloriously nerdtastic cakes I’ve ever seen. Adorned with Koopas, Goombas, Cheep Cheep and Petey Piranhas, the cake’s scenes depict some of the Super Mario series’ most beloved levels. Except for the underwater worlds, I really freaking hate how hard those levels are — erm I mean were.

Crafted over a period of five days by Cakecrumbs, an Australian-based food blog, this fan-made cake takes it a step further by including those little Mario World secrets, such as the hidden block with a vine. The detail is on point, from the shadows on the clouds, to the shine on the warp pipes, it’s a superfan’s dessert dream.

The only thing missing is Mario and Peach, but I’m sure they’d make the perfect cake toppers. Perhaps with a Toad as the minister? Erm, too cute. I’d say invite Luigi to this thing but we all know he’s got a bit of a Mario complex.

This Lesbian Superhero Wedding Cake is the Best Thing You’ll See Today

xena

Let’s be real — we’re secret suckers for nerdy love stories, and we’d probably give any superhero-themed wedding about a 9.5 out of 10 on the Foodbeast excellence scale. But a superhero-themed lesbian wedding featuring a Xena and Wonder Woman wedding cake? There’s so much perfection happening there that the rating system doesn’t even apply.

But wait, it gets better. One of the brides actually baked the cake herself. We’ll say that again for emphasis: she baked a multi-tiered, incredibly detailed wedding cake depicting an epic love story between two celebrated gay icons just to show her love for her wife-to-be. Based on the number of meltdowns in just one episode of Cake Boss, we’re pretty much in awe of anyone who can bake a cake that pretty and still look this happy. Plus the cake itself looks delicious.

The South Carolina couple got married surrounded by people wearing superhero t-shirts under their formalwear, cut the cake at a reception featuring a ton of Batman postcards, and lived happily ever after. And for all the hardcore Xena fans who are outraged by the idea of Xena ditching Gabrielle for Wonder Woman, we’d just like to point out that Wonder Woman is an Amazon princess . . . just like Gabrielle. Guess Xena has a type.

Labyrinth Wedding Cake is Six Tiers of Awesome

labyrinth-cake-top2

These past few days have been excellent for Labyrinth paraphernalia. First, we brought you these hand-painted Etsy mugs featuring two of the cult classic’s many memorable characters. The set could easily become a pair of his-and-her mugs, perfect for the lucky couple who commissioned this kick-ass wedding cake.

labyrinth-cake-top

Tracey of the Black Cherry Cake Company has made herself a hero for 80s babies everywhere when she retold Jim Henson’s puppets-on-LSD fairy tale. With a cake. It’s everything a person needs in life.

I tried to tell the story moving up the cake, the bottom tier depicts the start of the Labyrinth with the tiny blue worm, Riddle Guards, Door knockers, red lipstick arrows, stone book chair and other doorways.

From there Sarah makes her to the Fire Gang and the bog of eternal stench, Hoggle is sat around the bag holding the peach.
Ludo is sat ontop of a rock in the the Bog inside a Jareth glass ball.

From there they all make their way to the Goblin city on the next tier and the clock showing she is running out of time. She makes her way to the Goblin Castle into the starirs maze, Toby is sat around the back holding a glass ball. Then on top is Jareth and Sarah in the ballroom scene as it is afterall a wedding cake!

The downside? She expects us to devour Ludo whole. Heartlessness has never existed in a more heinous form.

Here Are Some Very Good Reasons to Want a Hidden Spiderman at the Bottom of Your Wedding Cake

spideyfeature

Sticking a toy Spidey underneath pounds of handmade flower fondant and strawberry rose-water butter cream might not seem like a good idea as you’re scrolling through your 15th DIY Wedding Inspiration Pinterest board and watching re-runs of Say Yes to the Dress — but hear me out.

After all, there’s something strangely whimsical about a Hidden Spiderman Wedding Cake. Something that says, “I’m more than just a pretty dress and adorable hand-decorated mason jars, goddammit. I’m also a huge nerd. I’m a DIY-ing NERD!”

See for yourself:
