Staff Writer

Becky Stone loves to read stories about princesses who save themselves and firmly believes that a mug of hot chocolate paired with the right novel can solve almost any problem. Becky recently did that thing where you leave your safe, easy job to try to make money doing what you love, and is now a professional jewelry lover and freelance writer. You can find more of Becky at her blog, Diamonds in the Library, where she writes about both jewelry and books.

As a newly engaged book nerd, I’ve been spending quite a bit of my time reading wedding-related parts of the internet. I don’t know yet what I’m going to want for my wedding cake (beyond that I want it to be delicious) but I DO know that I love all of these.

wedding cake with a hand piped poem by ee cummings 'i carry your heart'. done by 'Bella e Dolce', northern Michigan area bakery

This lovely tone-on-tone cake features the hand-piped text of EE Cummings’ legendary poem,  i carry your heart with me. This beauty is the work of Bella e Dolce, a northern Michigan area bakery.

The Giving Tree wedding cake

This Giving Tree cake melts my heart. I don’t think it’s intended as a wedding cake, but all you have to do is change the initials.

Game of Thrones wedding cake by The Cake Mamas.

Game of Thrones wedding cake. I repeat, Game of Thrones wedding cake.

Cat in the Hat wedding cake from Cakes by Suzy.

Here’s a Cat in the Hat wedding cake. I desperately hope this couple had rhyming vows.

Dune sandworm wedding cake by Jana*s Fun Cakes

Here in the “least likely” category, we have a Dune cake. Nothing says romance like sandworms, am I right?

Books wedding cake by Jana*s Fun Cakes.

This one’s a little different than the others. Instead of being an interpretation of a particular book in some way, it’s just a stack of books that the couple loves.

Which of these bookish wedding cakes is your favorite? Would you ever choose a bookish wedding cake for your own big day? If you have – let’s see it!
