For the New Year’s Day wedding of Irma and Javier Ayala, they had a unique groom’s cake to reflect Javier’s interest in filmmaking.

In honor of their marriage, the hometown college team won the Rose Bowl, and there was much rejoicing. They had a wonderful fun celebration with friends and family that lasted every bit of six hours, with a Party Machine photo montage and ceremony highlight reel that got “two thumbs up” from Javier.

Expect a sequel.

We have seen cakes decorated in school colors, in the shape of animals, and made to look like a football stadium. We have seen lots of cakes made to look like video game consoles, basketballs, footballs and such. If you’re a fan, there’s a cake waiting to be made for you.

A friend sent me the ultimate Groom’s Cake for the Star Wars fan:
