14 Celebrity Wedding Cakes We Love (Including Kate’s!)
One of the sweetest wedding traditions is saving the top tier of cake for the first anniversary celebration. Whether or not William and Kate preserved a slice for April 29th, the royal couple certainly had a confection worth remembering a year after they said "I do." That's why we're looking back at the some of the most memorable wedding cakes and the couples that served them, from the Kennedys to the royals of Monaco. See them all in the gallery!
Prince William and Catherine Middleton
A British pastry chef and graphic designer Fiona Cairns was selected to whip up the royal couple's tour de force dessert. While the exterior is an opulent design, the layers are made from traditional fruit cake.
Prince Charles and Diana
It took a mighty marzipan cake to match the pomp of this royal wedding. Though it was certainly a pricey confection at the time, a slice of the top tier later sold at auction in 2008 for $1,830.
Prince Rainier III and Grace Kelly
After their afternoon nuptials on April 19, 1956, guests lunched al fresco and finished their meal with a traditional cake adorned with cherubs.
Prince Albert II and Charlene Wittstock
Following in the tradition of his parents, Prince Albert II of Monaco served a towering cake at his wedding to Charlene Wittstock. The massive five-tier confection featured a white and pink floral motif and a cornucopia cake topper.
Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall
In keeping with their intimate farmhouse wedding, the on and offscreen duo chose a rustic charmer of a cake and (for the first bite) skipped the cutlery.
Prince Aly Khan and Rita Hayworth
No ordinary knife would do, so this sultry star cut into her cake with a sword at her French Riviera fete.
John and Jackie Kennedy
The couple's sweet cake reflected the rustic charm of their 1953 Newport affair.
Elvis and Priscilla Presley
Viva Las Vegas! The lovebirds celebrated their May 1967 nuptials with a six-tier design adorned with romantic red roses.
Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward
Though their wedding was in Las Vegas, their cake was anything but flashy. The newlyweds cut into a modest three-tier dessert.
