Gucci Mane's $75,000 Wedding Cake Had to Be Cut with a Sword

Tradition encourages couples to save the top tier of their wedding cake, freeze it, and defrost it on their first anniversary to share it together with a glass of champagne, in celebration of one year of marriage. But, what does one do if they cannot reach the top tier of their wedding cake without a ladder or a forklift?

Gucci Mane and his wife, Keyshia Ka’oir tied the knot this past Tuesday, in an over-the-top event at the Four Seasons Miami which reportedly boasted a $1.7 million dollar price tag, People reports. Their all-white reception (complete with an all-white dress code dripping in diamonds and crystals) was capped off by the tallest wedding cake we’ve ever seen. Apparently, a cake double your size–so tall that it needs to be sliced with a crystal-encrusted sword–is the fitting dessert for one of the most extravagant weddings of 2017, and you can’t slice the world’s tallest wedding cake with anything other than a bedazzled weapon, am I right?!

The four-tier cake stood at over 10 feet, and was designed by Edda’s Cake Designs in South Florida. The baker, Edda Martinez, created double-tier layers with crystals cascading from each tier, resembling a massive chandelier. The cake was covered in 8,000 handmade sugar flowers and over 2,500 Swarovski crystals–perfect for the “diamonds and crystals” theme of the nuptials. The cake took three days of baking to make and was a mix of flavors, including red velvet, amaretto, carrot, banana nuts, and Jamaican rum, reports People. The sword was a gift from the baker herself, who most likely anticipated the hardship of slicing a confection larger than oneself with a classic pastry knife.

The cake, it seems, was only a part of the over-the-top details featured in this high-priced celebration. The couple hosted their version of a “royal wedding,” of which the planning will be featured in a 10-part series for BET dubbed Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir: The Mane Event. And who attended the event and enjoyed the humongous, sword-sliced wedding cake you may ask? The couple hosted celebrity guests like 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Monica, Big Sean and Jhene Aiko and Sean “Diddy” Combs.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
