It’s wedding season! And for those of us who are not the bride or groom, there’s usually nothing better to do at a wedding besides eat cake. For those of you who are the bride or groom, one of the best things about wedding planning is getting to taste the cake! So let us all eat cake and continue on with this list of cute, geeky wedding cakes for the geeks getting ready to tie the knot.
Doctor Who Wedding Cake
Elegant, classy, and no one will know it’s Doctor Who until they look at the cake topper! This cake is perfect for those who are looking for a more subtle way to show off their geekiness.
Lego Wedding Cake
I love this cake, because it’s such an easy idea to recreate without the help of a professional cake artist. All you need is a set of legos and an imagination, and you can create the lego-inspired cake of your dreams.
My Neighbor Totoro Wedding Cake
The cake itself is my favorite on this list. Without the Totoro topper, it would just be a darling cake, and with the topper, it’s even cuter! Those pink flowers and the brilliant detailing on the tree trunk are just gorgeous.
The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker Wedding Cake
The powder blue color and the Zelda triforce symbol, as well as the cloud-like frosting makes for a delicious looking themed wedding cake! I also appreciate the touch of Harry Potter and Star Wars with their symbols making appearances on the cake as well. What a great way to show off your love of multiple franchises!
Superhero Wedding Cake
There’s something about the color white. It makes everything look beautiful and wedding-ready, but the superhero touch gives this otherwise typical pretty cake a splash of uniqueness. We all want to be unique on our wedding day right?
Portal Wedding Cake
Oh my goodness, I can’t get over the cake topper! The turrets are so adorable in their little wedding get-ups. Look at the veil and bowtie! Not to mention the companion cube sitting atop the fluffy white cake. I’m in love with this cake.
Mario Kart Wedding Cake
Maybe at first glance this cake looks more like a birthday cake with all of its bright colors, but it’s so much fun! Mario and Peach top the cake with a pair of hearts and somehow it’s such a romantic scene, even if they’re fictional characters. I love all the added detail here as well, like the race track and coins.
Lord of the Rings Wedding Cake
This unique cake gives me nature vibes. That wood cake stand, those edible frosting roses, and the color of the cake all make this cake right at home in a forest setting. I love the Lord of the Rings inscription, taken straight from the One Ring itself. Is that Arwen and Aragorn standing on top of the cake? It’s beautiful.
Harry Potter Wedding Cake
Another classic white cake, with a geek’s touch! The golden snitches and the stylized “Always,” turn it into a Harry Potter fan’s dream. The swirly designs are magical as well, fitting right in with the Harry Potter theme as well as simply adding beauty to the whole aesthetic.
Star Wars Wedding Cake
Who’s up for a slice of the Death Star? This cake is so out of this world that it doesn’t even look like a real cake! I bet it tastes delicious though, and who wouldn’t want to take a chunk out of this evil ship? That stormtrooper bride is hilarious as well.
Batman and Wonder Woman Wedding Cake
This is probably one of the most simple ideas to emulate on the list. Take your traditional looking wedding cake and just add a pair of your favorite action figures to the top of it to turn it into a geeky cake. The person who made this cake chose to add Wonder Woman and Batman — they’d make a good fanfiction pair. (Ahem, not that I write fanfiction.)
Pokemon Wedding Cake
Another traditional cake, with the added touch of a couple of classic cute Pokemon characters. A casual wedding guest might be unaware that this is a Pokemon cake unless iconic characters such as Pokemon or Squirtle are included, but I think this cake is perfect for those who want to show their love of Pokemon without Pokemon being the main focus.
Disney Castle Wedding Cake
Why not celebrate the happiest place on Earth while at the celebration of your happiest day on Earth? This cake is a replica of the Disney Land castle, and it’s absolutely magical! I love the inclusion of icicles, perfect for making this a winter wedding cake.
Mass Effect Wedding Cake
Holly Conrad (famous cosplayer and artist) and Ross O’ Donovan (member of Youtube’s Game Grumps) — otherwise known as geek royalty — had a space themed wedding a few years back. Their wedding cake was Mass Effect’s Normandy, and it was absolutely fabulous. #Weddinggoals.
