Las Vegas Bride’s Editor Takes The Cake

In last weekend’s holiday edition of Norm Clarke (Las Vegas Review Journal), he asked for readers to submit their crazy wedding/event cakes. Our editor, Jennifer, submitted photos of her wedding cake. This confectionary creation weighed in at triple digits and delighted her 115 guests. The cake was created by Gimme Some Sugar, and did not disappoint. 

Here was her submission: 

We asked for your crazy cake stories — from weddings or special events — and we got a plateful. 

The inspiration for our search came after witnessing the 70-pound, 22-layer cake replica of the White House at the wedding of CNN chief White House correspondent Ed Henry and Shirley Hung, a CNN senior producer based in Washington, D.C. 

Some of the wildest entries (after disqualifying the erotic cake entries): 

■ KLAS-TV, Channel 8 weatherman Tedd Florendo and his wife, Jennifer, went for the Mad Hatter theme at their April 24 wedding. Their cake, a five-tier creation that weighed in at 120 pounds, offered something for everyone. Created by Gimme Some Sugar, the cake flavors included: Red Velvet, S’mores, Luscious Lemonberry and Strawberry Bomb.

The outrageousness didn’t end with the cake: The bride and groom went with a “Vegas” theme to the grand entrance. Each member of the bridal party was assigned a character. 

“We had Elvis, a cocktail server, a pageant queen, a party girl, a casino/mafia boss and his trophy wife, Flavor Flav and even a buffet lover,” Jennifer said. 

And no Vegas wedding would be complete without “crashers,” so they added the Alan and Carlos characters from “The Hangover” (played by Zach Galifianakis and the baby).
