My favorites are Norwegian Princess Martha Louise's and Prince Hamzah and Princess Noor's. Elegant but not over done! For my own wedding cake I originally wanted a design like Princess Martha's with the individual cakes. It ended up with four individual ones with real flowers on top, but not in the same arrangement.

Oh my god, this thread is making me hungry. I would like to try a piece of cake of each wedding cake.

I noticed many of the cakes have bride and groom toppers, and some are really well done. The dancing couple and the couple sitting on the side of the cake were unique. Not so many couples choose to put the couples on top of their cakes any more.

Martha Louise and Ari Behn's cake was indeed very beautiful. I especially like the bows on the cake. I see that the cake was four-tiered but not attached...
IMO, their cake is the best looking that I've seen.

It was a beautiful cake. And it also made me think of the ornamentation on some of the old stave churches.

You're right about the stave churches, Valhalla.

I wonder if I EVER get married, if I could find a cake maker to make me a similar (but smaller cake) with dragons. (I'd have to work a Norwegian theme in somehow!)

I've never really seen a close up shot of Charles and Diana's cake but I was wondering is this description of the cake accurate? I found it online. The ornamental "c" and "d" is what I can't see in the pictures but I'm thinking it's cause all the pics of the cake I've seen aren't close up shots.

I always liked her. I have read her autobiography, which was very interesting! She wrote in the book, regarding her wedding, that King Hussein actually wanted a much fancier wedding, whereas she wanted a much more simplistic day. Thanks for the photo of the wedding cake!

The wedding cake of the Duke of Anjou and the Duchess of Cadaval:

It was made by the chef of the Hotel Palácio Estoril and its marsipan glace reproduced the coat of arms of both families: Orléans and Cadaval.

There are a few Royal wedding cakes in the thread that no longer work. Can someone post replacement photos? In particular for Princess Martha Louise?

Also, The "cake" scandal from Jordan is mentioned in Queen Noor's book. She said that she and the King were astonished to discover that the whole cake wasn't real when they cut into it!

I can´t remember the exact recipe but it was made of something fantastic like 700 eggs, I remember the broadcaster joking and saying there was a more economical recipe using only 350 eggs. Perhaps you have the details Elsa...

Martha Louise's cake was gorgeous. I love the color of the bows on the side. Very pretty.

It looks to me like a hat or simply a base for the ribbons. What is the Argentinean tradition with the ribbons? This is the first time that I have seen this. It looks really pretty, but does it symbolize something?

Gorgeous cakes and now I am truly hungry. Didn´t like the one of Felipe and Leticia, though.

I wish that there had been some color - flowers or something - incorporated into the decoration of this cake -
It seems too stark and too white to me -
