landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Excuse me while the cartoon nerd in me comes out.  But, I love when a bride and groom do something completely different for a wedding cake. We all love a classic 4-tiered white cake with a traditional topper, but sometimes different is good. Who am I kidding. Different is good, a lot (but traditional is good, too).

Alliance Bakery out of Chicago did a fantastic job creating this Futurama inspired cake that was photographed by Jeremy Lawson. Love love love the little Fry and Leela characters. Seriously adorable.
