Thanks to exoskeletoncabaret for submitting this astounding photo of a steampunk wedding cake by Mike's Amazing Cakes to the Offbeat Bride photo pool:

Steampunk Wedding Cake
If that doesn't blow your go-go-gadget mind, I don't know what will.

From exoskeletoncabaret's caption:

Liz and Austin's steampunked wedding cake. The metallic gears, doors, rivets, and panels were all made of fondant and were entirely edible. This is probably the baddest-ass wedding cake you will ever see. Respect. Best part: the cake tasted just as decadent as it looked! I had a slice of the lemon layer after photographing it.

Check out another shot of this amazing steampunk cake over here.

Oh and in case you're wondering about the couple that would have such an amazing cake? BEHOLD:

  1. Hi Ariel, I commented a few hours ago and my comment seems to have disappeared… did you think it was offensive because I said steam punk is not my piece of cake? I added immediately after that although that fact, I thought it was a greàt cake and that they were either very lucky people to have had a cake like this made, or they are very crafty themselves!

    • Brigitta, I'm seeing your original comment in our system, but for some reason it's not displaying here — which is a bug with our (sadly very buggy) commenting system. 🙁

  2. I'm not really into steampunk, but that being said – this cake is AMAZING, it's a true work of art! You're very lucky/crafty (?) people 🙂

  3. Cake was made by Mike's Amazing Cakes in Seattle. I am the photographer! And…I got to eat some of it, and wow, it looked and tasted equally awesome, whether you are a steampunk fan or just appreciate food art. 🙂

  4. Holy Sh*t!!!! I mean, holy cow, WOW! We are in the middle of planning our own steampunk wedding for next summer and could only hope for something half this amazing! I just need to find a artist in Denver with some of this talent!!!

    • Megan – if you haven't found it yet, check out She mainly focuses on hilarious mishaps in cake-dom, but every sunday is Sunday Sweets – where she showcases awesomely done cakes, and recently the lady who runs the blog went on a tour, and I believe did a stop in Denver. At each stop local artistic bakeries showed there stuff, and she mentions them by name… Check it out for some local people if you need a good place to start, and best of luck! – Cheers,

  5. Screw the cake, that is the best wedding photo I've ever seen!

    …well I guess the cake's pretty awesome too.

    Liz Spain and Austin Lamb hosted a Steampunk wedding and reception,August 08, 2009 aboard the Virgina V, a 1922 Steamship plying the waters of Lake Washington and Lake Union in Seattle, Washington USA. The bride, Pacific Northwest artist and costumer Liz Spain, designed and created her own wedding jewelery, dress and the most of the men's clothes and accessories.

  7. Not only is that a stunning cake, but the couple look like the kind of people I'd love to know! What a funky photo.
