Even the cakes can feature extravagant floral displays, billowing meringues, and designer masterpieces. Celebrity weddings sometimes feature expensive attire, opulent settings, and flashy guests. The much-photographed cake is frequently the wedding’s crowning achievement. Here is a visual feast of the most amazing wedding cakes we’ve ever seen, from Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s fairy-tale palace design to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s world-trotting fruit cake.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
The chore of making a cake fit for a right royal throng fell to London baker Claire Ptak for the now-duke of Sussex’s 2018 nuptials to actress Meghan Markle. She deviated from convention and chose a lemon and elderflower cake, cooked with elderflower syrup from the trees at Sandringham Estate, the royal family’s rural residence. Fresh flowers and white buttercream were used to decorate the four-part beauty.
Kate Middleton and Prince William.
William and Kate’s fruit cake adhered to the royal custom of serving a fruit, spice, and nut sponge, and was an elegant yet understated design suitable for the couple themselves. Since it has an extremely long shelf life, historically, the dessert has represented prosperity. All of the United Kingdom’s eight layers were embellished with sugar flowers, including lily of the valley, Irish shamrock, English rose, Scottish thistle, and Welsh daffodil. In April 2011, the now-Prince and Princess of Wales tied the knot. The cake is still in style.
Vicky Adams and David Beckham.
If you can take your eyes off the matching purple dresses in this amazing flashback image of fashion queen Victoria and football legend David Beckham from their 1990s wedding, you might then notice the pretty unique wedding cake.
Posh and Becks decided on a three-tiered arrangement that was embellished with greenery and red apples. All we can say is that, although times and tastes have changed, this classic work will endure.

Albert II, Prince of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock
Albert II, Prince of Monaco, the son of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace of Monaco, wed former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock (now Princess of Monaco) in 2011. The ceremony was attended by famous people and world leaders. The designer didn’t let the couple down when it came to making the wedding cake suitable. Five tiers of redcurrant and vanilla cake with a blossoming plant motif. To honor Charlene’s background, the protea, South Africa’s national flower, was used as decoration.
Keyshia Kaoir and Gucci Mane
The wedding cake for rapper Gucci Mane and businesswoman Keyshia Ka’oir in 2017 at the Four Seasons Miami was so large that it had to be cut with a sword. It was over 10 feet (3 meters) tall. Due to its size, it may include a variety of flavors, such as red velvet, amaretto, carrot, banana nut, and Jamaican rum. The tiers were poured with Swarovski gems to provide a little flair.
Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding cake, which was presented at Windsor Castle in 2018, had a definite autumnal feel and was yet another royal dessert with a completely different design from the last. The cake included five layers of red velvet and chocolate, was coated in white frosting, and was adorned with sugar ivy and the couple’s initials. It was baked with a whopping 400 eggs and at least 53 packets of butter.
Diana Spencer, Charles, and the Prince of Wales
There were an astounding 27 cakes on exhibit at the wedding of the century, the union of the Prince of Wales, now King Charles II, and Princess Di (then Diana Spencer), in July 1981. The Windsor and Spencer coats of arms, the royal couple’s initials, and white frosting were all on the main one, which was five feet (1.5 meters) tall. Slices apparently still exist, as one recently sold on eBay for £1,850 ($2,562). It took 14 weeks to produce.
John F Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier
A new tradition was established with the cake that was served at the wedding of JFK, who was a senator at the time, and Jackie Kennedy. Several US presidents have since chosen the traditional pairing for their inauguration balls. For their 1953 wedding in Newport, Rhode Island, the white cake was filled with raspberry preserve and covered in frosting.
Five layers, each delicately embellished with piping and topped with a bouquet, were added to make it particularly unique for the future president and first lady’s big day.
