This week’s cake comes to you in honor of The Incredible Hulk film not sucking even half as much as it possibly could have. (Look for that quote on the box when the movie comes out on DVD.)
Ben and Kerri’s wedding cake “commemorates the first Halloween they spent together early in the relationship. He was painted green, as the Hulk. She was Wonder Woman.” At the wedding, photos from that Halloween night decorated the table around the cake.
Before the Cake Police get started in the comments about the non-cake elements crowning the third layer: This cake caught my notice not for its artistry, or even for its boldness. Yes, arguably, it’s an aesthetically interesting cake with a bold Hulk-green look, but it pales on both counts when compared to something like the Jabba wedding cake.
No, I want to give props to this cake as part of Ben and Kerri’s overall commitment to a geeky superhero theme in their wedding. The Hulk-green tone didn’t just make it onto the cake and the place settings. Ben sported a green tie, and Kerri wore a green sash around her wedding dress.
That’s got to be the Hulkiest wedding, ever… which could only have been made more perfect by Ben slipping one of those giant, foam Hulk hands onto Kerry in lieu of a wedding band.
Regarding the flavor of the cake, Eric–one of their wedding guests who is currently working towards his PhD in Really Useful Information–told me, “I don’t remember the flavor of the cake. I just remember thinking it was good.”
