Secret Superhero Wedding Cakes
First up is this hidden superhero cake, photographed by Ten Foot Tall Photography. If you’re thinking of getting your man a separate groom wedding cake, then consider a compromise with a design like this – where tradition and superheroes go hand in hand.
Nothing seems too surprising about this cake just by looking at its traditional front half, however, turn it around and you'll be blown away when you see that the Avengers have gatecrashed the design! We love that each tier has been decorated with a different hero – you could even pick different wedding cake flavours for each one so that the inside of the cake is just as much of a surprise.
