Top 11 Pinterest Wedding Cakes inspired by Movies

Everyone wants their wedding day to be special, but how is it possible to come up with unique ideas for such an age-old tradition? Well, with cake of course!

It’s virtually impossible to have an entirely unique wedding. Literally everything has been done before (yep, even a Shrek-themed wedding). However, there are ways to inject a sense of individuality and personality into your celebrations, and one of the easiest ways is through the wedding cake! It’s possible to have an entirely bonkers wedding cake while keeping the rest of the theme very magnolia and rose, which is probably why unique wedding cakes are more popular than ever. While trawling around the internet, as you do, our editors noticed a certain theme for wedding cakes cropping up more and more—cakes inspired by the bride and groom’s favorite movie. We think that’s a pretty neat idea, and took to Pinterest to find the best ones to share with you.

Let the cameras (and cakes) roll…
