Beauty And The Beast Disney Inspired Wedding Cake

Gold details add an aura of elegance to just about any wedding cake, but when you sprinkle in delicate red roses you get a cake that exudes fairy tale romance. Inspired by the love and romance of the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast,  I think Belle herself would approve of the floral that adds just the right touch of sophistication.

Fairytale Wedding

My sister and I… were very different people.

I had what I call ‘giraffe proportions’, gangly, tall. Amy was average height with the whole hourglass figure. I was a social recluse, she was a social butterfly. I’m an asexual lesbian and she told me quite often during our teen years that I was a freak and could never be loved.

Then three years ago she calls me out of the blue to invite me to her wedding.

I’d moved across the country, had a decent living working as a freelance photographer and had just begun to shake off my insecurities when I got the phone call. She’d had been dating her highschool sweetheart on and off again since graduation and he finally got the balls to pop the question. After apologizing for our relationship going dead since I went to California, she offered to fly me back home and even to cover the cost of the hotel room.

I chose to bury the hatchet and asked for the dates.

AngelaBaby and Huang’s celebrity wedding sets hearts alight

The fairytale-themed wedding of top Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming and model, actress Yang Ying (aka AngelaBaby) has been dubbed ‘the wedding of the century,’ with reports that half of China’s celebrities were in attendance.

With dozens of images posted online, the event has become the top trending story on Chinese social media since it was held on Thursday.

The couple reportedly invited around 600 guests to the Shanghai Exhibition Center, chosen because Huang said he wanted to fulfil AngelaBaby’s childhood dream of getting married in a castle.

More than 200 florists worked together to decorate the wedding site, named as the Princess’s Garden of Eden. The cake itself, 2.5 meters high, took cake makers around a month to complete.

However it’s the two-hour line of Chinese celebrities that seems to be the highlight for netizens. Actress Li Bingbing was among the bridesmaids, whilst Wang Sicong, son of China’s richest man, was one of the groom’s best men.

@hey-KK said “I finally believe actor Huang Xiaoming really has earned huge money in recent years”. @keshoushou said,“To be honest, as a girl I really envy AngelaBaby. She’s beautiful too”.

Others were a little more cynical, questioning whether the event was held for the media. @baixueVIP said, “In your eyes it’s a fairy tale wedding, but in my view it’s the sponsor’s show - like a tennis performance.” @xiaotaiyang worried “The cake took one month to make? Is it really eatable after one month?”
