This Wedding Cake Is Business in the Front, Party in the Back

Kia and Billy Bunning had differing opinions when it came to their wedding cake. Kia wanted a traditional wedding cake while Billy wanted something more, um, playful, But thanks to Tier By Tier, a Milton Keynes-based bakery, they both got what they wanted.

Julie Baker (what a fitting last name!) created this "two-faced" cake that had a lovely vintage look from the front, but a stealth nod to Marvel and D.C. superheroes in the back. As you can see from her Facebook post, she was fretting the end result, since the bride and groom weren't going to see the finished product until their reception.

This was one of the reasons I didn't sleep much last week, but I couldn't complain as I loved every minute I spent...

Thankfully, the couple LOVED it. They told Buzzfeed "From most angles of the room the cake looked like a traditional wedding cake," she said. "Just what we had wanted. It wasn't until the cake was moved for us to cut that our guests realized there was a hidden extra. Some didn't even realize until the photos went online after the wedding as they were standing on the other side of the cake as we cut it."

The cake was shared by "Life of Dad" Facebook page and has more than 100,000 likes. You hear that ringing? It's the sound of all current brides and grooms calling their bakeries to ask for the exact same thing.
