Celebrities like to celebrate their wedding in style. From the dress (have a look at the Best Celebrities Wedding Dresses of 2014), to the reception and the cake. For some, the wedding cake has to shine just as brightly as the bride’s ring. After all, the wedding cake is often used as more than just a dessert. They are a focal piece for which the entire color scheme and theme of the reception is based. With such an important position, a wedding cake must be beautiful, elegant, and above all, unique.
Prince Charles and Diana
Princess Diana and Prince Charles had a memorable wedding in 1981 – just on the cake they spent $40,000. Yes, Princess Diana decided her wedding day deserved 27 wedding cakes and a five-foot-tall main cake that supposedly took 14 weeks to prepare. The cake designer was David Avery of the Royal Naval Cookery School, who decorated the cake with roses, lilies of the valley, and orchids, along with the Prince’s family’s royal coat of arms.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
While the height of the cake was extravagant, the colors of the cake were not. The black and white tiers gave a simplistic feel to the cake – and in the end it was far to large to cut. Oh, forgot the mention, the chocolate-chip cake weighted nealy 600 pounds.

Platinum – by chef Nobue Ikara
This amazing cake is worth $130.000. Why? You ask. It is decorated with platinum necklaces, pendants, pins and edible platinum flakes. Chef Nobue Ikara dedicated this cake to several famous Japanese women, like Chie Kumazawa and Rinko Kikuchi.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
This 10 tier vanilla and buttercream wedding cake was created by Sylvia Weinstock for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

When fully constructed the cake was six feet tall and adorned with thousands of edible sugar flowers. $11000
Prince William and Princess Kate
Prince William and Kate Middleton definitely went all out for their magnificent wedding with an eight-tiered fruit cake with white icing and 900 sugar paste flowers ringing in at a royal $80,000.

Displayed on the seventh tier, the English rose, Scottish thistle, Welsh daffodil, and Irish shamrock represented the home nations.
