Whether it's a to mark a milestone birthday, to celebrate a college acceptance, or to launch a new hairspray, Bravolebrities love to commission fabulous cakes. (They've even been known to do so for their dogs.) So naturally, when it comes to the big kahuna of opulent desserts — we're talking wedding cakes — Bravo stars go all in. As far as these folks are concerned, the more tiers, the better. And if there's not a little bling in that buttercream, the cake's just not complete.
Below, we've rounded up some of the most dazzling confections to come from Bravo personalities' weddings — some of which we've seen on camera. Keep scrolling to see Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright's frosted forest, Eva Marcille and Michael Sterling's five-tiered showstopper, and the edible castle that LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin cut into at their Texas-size wedding. We're also walking farther down memory lane to look back at Tamra and Eddie Judge's floating cake, and to ogle more desserts from Bravo weddings past.
So whether you're planning your own wedding or just like to daydream about butter and frosting — and don't we all— pour yourself a glass of bubbly keep on scrolling.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright
The Vanderpump Rules couple may have shaded Shep Rose for posting to social media during their 2019 wedding, but at least he gave us a look at their cake. In keeping with the wedding's fairytale theme, the trifle had an enchanted forest feel replete with a stump and a lush rainbow of flowers.
LeeAnne Locken & Rich Emberlin
It's been called into question whether there was enough food at LeeAnne Locken's 2019 wedding to Rich Emberlin. One thing we do know, however, was that there was dessert — and how. The 12-foot-tall champagne cake, frosted with white buttercream, looked like a miniature castle.
Eva Marcille & Michael Sterling
The Real Housewives of Atlanta beauty married her beau in 2018 and spared no expense at her lavish reception. Her five-tier dessert had alternating layers of lemon and strawberry cake, as well as edible starbursts. And that was just the bride's cake: Michael had a cigar-box-inspired cake of his own.
Mercedes "MJ" Javid & Tommy Feight
The Shahs of Sunset wedding took place in 2018. Though the bride's unusual entrance caused quite a splash, the towering cake — detailed with golden flourishes — also turned heads.
Denise Richards & Aaron Phypers
Though she planned her 2018 wedding in just three weeks, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills beauty had an intricately detailed cake that looked anything but slapdash. With three tiers, the delicate dessert had edible pearls and hyper-realistic frosted roses.
Candiace Dillard & Chris Bassett
When the groom is a restaurateur, food is bound to a focal point. So at this 2018 Real Housewives of Potomac wedding, even the sweets were worthy of a five-star review. The four-tiered wedding cake cloaked almond cake with raspberry jam and Chambord buttercream. It also had sparkles to match the bride's glittering reception dress.
Paul Nassif & Brittany Pattakos
Botched doc and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Paul Nassif married Brittany Pattakos at a Los Angeles ceremony in 2019. One week after tying the knot, the couple hosted a lavish destination reception in Greece. While partying under the stars, they cut into a pretty ombre cake while sparklers blazed in the background.
Josh Flagg & Bobby Boyd
The Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles agent has been known to frequent the Beverly Hills Hotel. So, it's no surprise that he chose the Los Angeles institution as his wedding venue in 2017. At the opulent, all-white event, Josh and his hubby, Bobby Boyd, cut into a monogrammed cake — and guest Sonja Morgan was kind enough to capture the sweet moment for posterity.
Tom Schwartz & Katie Maloney-Schwartz
The "Bubbas'" 2016 wedding had a chic, rustic vibe with a cake to match. Frosted with white buttercream, the cake had two layers: One was carrot cake; the other one was coconut. And those artfully strewn flowers on top have a secret backstory: They were actually used to hide damage the cake had endured during transport to the reception site. A happy accident, indeed!
Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker
Tamra & Eddie Judge
When The Real Housewives of Orange County couple got hitched back in 2013, they were floating on air — and so was their cake. Displayed on a suspended platform, the $2,500 creation swathed six tiers of lemon cake in edible diamonds and quilted buttercream.
Jenni Pulos & Jonathan Nassos
In 2012, the Flipping Out rap savant married her orthopedic-surgeon beau at a big, fat Greek wedding in Chicago. In an elegant palette of black and white, the six-tier cake was covered in quilted frosting and crowned with white orchids.
Kim Zolciak-Biermann & Kroy Biermann
When the Don't Be Tardy couple got hitched, they found their cake vendor just days before Kim walked down the aisle. Amazingly, Atlanta pastry chef Joshua John Russell was able to whip up 11 pristine tiers at warp speed, creating a towering white cake covered in flowers and crystals. What's with the exorbitant number of tiers? The couple married on November 11, 2011, so 11 was the number of the day.
Pandora Vanderpump Sabo & Jason Sabo
Lisa Vanderpump's daughter married her dream man in 2011. This being a Vanderpump wedding, there was plenty of pink, including in the towering wedding cake that was strewn with roses and orchids. We can only assume there was rosé to wash it down.
