The following facts might be irrelevant to you since you may be getting married anytime soon, however here are a few interesting facts on wedding cakes:

1.The most expensive cake ever made was worth $30 million. The cake was made by Buddy Valastro (better known as Cake Boss from TLC's cake show) at the request of NYC socialite Deborah Rose for her diamond gala event.$30 million worth of jewels -- including sapphires, emeralds, rubies and diamonds -- were embedded on the cake.

2. Queen Victoria was one of the first to have pure white icing on her wedding cake. That's is where the name "royal icing" came from.

3. One of the largest wedding cakes ever made was in the US built for the Mohegan Sun casino at 17 feet tall and 15,032 pounds. The bakers used 10,000 pounds of cake batter and 4,810 pounds of frosting for this massive creation.
