I love it when I stumble upon a truly one-of-a-kind wedding cake, like this street art-inspired confection by a bakery in Paris called Sugarplum Cake Shop. I saw the very cool documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop last year, which is how I first heard about Invader, a famed French street artist known for his colorful mosaics inspired by the old-school arcade game (from which he takes his name). I love that this couple was daring enough to request a wedding cake inspired by the artist's work—the crisp square tiers are decorated with Invader's signature alien mosaics, fashioned from squares of edible fondant instead of actual tiles. I can only imagine how cool the rest of the wedding was—I'm imagining a chic and modern celebration at an art gallery or museum. If you're looking for a bakery in the U.S. that can create something similar, check out this amazing party with Space Invader-themed sweets created by Sweet & Saucy Shop in California.
If you have a wedding cake you'd like to submit for the blog, please email photos and a brief description to Heather Lee at email@example.com.
