We're getting the ultimate twofer this week, cake fans, because today is all about half-and-half wedding cakes! You know, the ones that are Traditional in the front, Party in the back?

It's like a mullet, only not in every conceivable way. Because it's awesome.
I like the trend of putting these in front of mirrors, so the fun side peeks out in the reflection. Such a cool surprise for the guests!
This idea first took off with half-chocolate cakes - essentially combining the traditional Groom's cake with the wedding cake - and that style is still pretty popular:

I loooooove this soft draping effect; like a pretty cloth laid over a chocolate cake!
My Spidey sense are tingling with this one:

Those lines are so clean and perfect!
This couple's wedding topper gives a strong hint as to what's on the other side:
Hogwarts! And they're riding Hagrid's motorcycle!

This one actually made me gasp:

Now back to geeky stuff:

Check out that torn away fondant for the transition - love that.
Another fantastic topper on this Batman wedding cake:
But Superman has to get his turn!
Swooning for all that gleaming silver.
Here's a transition I never would have thought of: popcorn!

How cute is this? I hope they had a whole movie theme with the wedding.

These details make my jaw drop. The tiny beads! The watch chain! The boutonniere! Absolute perfection, no two ways about it. ;)
Hope you all enjoyed! Happy Sunday!
