This couple's wedding cake was actually just a ton of pizzas stacked together
When you're thinking about getting married to the person you love most in the world, there's certainly a heck of a lot to plan and consider ahead of time. Yes, they liked your romantic proposal, but there's so much left to plan! The catering, the guests, the wedding band; just thinking about all those things to organise makes me dizzy, but the most important thing, for me, is the wedding cake.
A wedding cake is part dessert, part artistic expression, part totem for your everlasting commitment; get it wrong, and you may be paying the price in more ways than one. With such pressure on your shoulders, some couples go all-out in an attempt to start their lives together the right way, but I think that this couple's got the right idea.
Kitted out in the traditional nuptial garb, at first glance, you wouldn't think there was anything unconventional about Jess Melara and Tony Sanchez's wedding. They got married in Miami back in December 2016, but speaking to Wedding Chicks, Jess explained that they wanted to cut into a rather unorthodox wedding cake once they tied the knot.
"Tony and I love pizza and aren't huge fans of cake, so we surprised our guests with Pizza Cake (yes, I said pizza cake!). It was saucy and delicious and what pizza dreams are made of."
Apart from the fact that Tony and Jess are apparently not fans of cake (who doesn't like cake?!), you'll be pleasantly charmed with their deliciously cheesy wedding cake, which I guess is closer to a pizza lasagna than a pizza cake. I mean, take one look at this thing and tell me you don't wish you were invited to this wedding:
Excuse me for one second: I've got to go find a napkin so I can wipe all of this drool off the table. My coworkers are staring. But while a pizza is definitely a delicious substitute for a cake, were the happy still able to carry all the wedding traditions, like a cake topper, or cutting the cake, or feeding each other slices of cake?
Uhhh, I actually think it's easier to do that with a pizza than it is with a cake. As you can see.
But there's a huge, cheesy difference between watching two happy people eating pizza and getting to eat pizza yourself so you can become happy. So, it was pretty nice of the caterers to come up with handy little fun boxes to serve slices of pizza to their guests.
Finally, for those guests out there with a sweet tooth who simply wouldn't be satisfied with just pizza at a wedding, there was, in fact, some sweet stuff to enjoy as well. Gelato, anyone? A food truck full of the sweet stuff was waiting for them in case anybody needed a break from all that cheese. Though, that was not likely. There were also cracker jacks and funfetti cake for people to take home soon.
Unfortunately, guys, I'm a long way off being married just yet. But if you happen to be ready to settle down with the love of your life, then why not have a stack of pizzas instead of a cake at your wedding? Oh, and don't forget to invite me. Pretty please.
