17 Most Expensive Wedding Cakes
You can’t eat money. Well, okay, technically you can, but it’s not recommended. Money would be hard to chew, it’s dirty, and it probably tastes downright nasty. You have to make your own dietary decisions, but eating money is probably something that you should avoid.
Cake, on the other hand, is delicious. It’s hard to imagine that anyone doesn’t like cake, and if you do come across that person, you probably don’t want to be their friend. Cake is great, and unlike money, it is meant to be eaten.
So, if you’re a rich person and you want to prove just how rich you are, what do you do? You find the most expensive wedding cake possible. After all, isn’t that the closest thing to actually eating money? It’s the best of both worlds, really – you get to prove your wealth to all of your jealous friends and family, and you get to eat delicious cake instead of disgusting money. The only downside is the empty calories, but that’s why you have your own full-time personal trainer. Eat the cake now, sweat it off later while wearing your $100 yoga pants. Everybody wins.
Following is a list of 17 of the most expensive wedding cakes you will ever see. If you are able to afford one of these cakes for your own wedding, congratulations are in order – you will have successfully proven your wealth to an envious world.
Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding Cake
As mentioned above, cake is delicious. Unless, of course, you decide to have a gluten-free cake, in which case, all bets are off. It could be good – or it could taste like sandpaper. Let’s hope this one was good, as it stood four feet tall and weighed somewhere in the neighborhood of five hundred pounds. All that for only $11,000!
Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Cake
When you think Kardashian, you think understated, tasteful, and classy. (Right?) Anyway, this cake might not have fit into any of those categories. For the price of a small sedan, Kim’s wedding cake soared eight feet tall and tipped the scales at around 600 pounds.
Prince Charles and Lady Diana’s Wedding Cake
Estimated to cost around $40,000 in 1981, this is surely one of the most expensive wedding cakes ever created. As if the original cake wasn’t expensive enough, a total of 27 cakes were created for the event. While all of this was very expensive, the wedding went down as one for the ages – an estimated 750 million people watched on TV.
