This Cake Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts

“To have and to hold, to love and to cherish, and to never cross the streams.”  These must have been the vows at the marriage ceremony of DonnaMarie and Ricky who ordered this incredibly nerdalicious Ghostbusters-themed wedding cake from Charm City Cakes.

This mostly-edible matrimonious cake removes the traditional bride and groom figurines for two proton-pack bearing versions of the happy couple.  They stand atop Dana Barret’s lofty 55 Central Park West apartment building, designed by the mad doctor and cult leader, Ivo Shandor.  From this perch, they reign down charged particle beams on the grimacing Stay Puft Marshmallow Man who appears to be crushing the wedding church under his gooey feet.  You can even see little green Slimer enjoying the view from the thirteenth floor.

The cake was designed by Charm City Cakes in Baltimore who have appeared on Bravo’s Ace of Cakes.  The pastry pros made every effort to get the details just right, referencing photographs and scenes from the film to accurately depict the characters and setting from the 80s movie franchise.  The apartment building used in the movie was actually made with matte paintings and models based on the top of the Continental Life Building in St. Louis, Missouri.  The cake aces had to scour Google images to find the right shots they needed of this building to ensure the delectable design was totally accurate.

The best part?  The proton streams light up when you turn out the lights?  Ever see a glow-in-the-dark cake before?

There’s no information regarding what the cake is made out of, but is said to be mostly edible.  But one has to wonder if the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man was truly made out of marshmallow himself.

The newlywed couple declares their next cake will be an homage to the movie Alien. But if you want to see more cool Ghostbusters artwork, check out this Lego recreation of the film’s climax and this hilarious Venkman woodblock piece.
