Crumbs! Seven of the most extravagant cakes ever

by on

If you've something to
celebrate - whether it's a birthday, a wedding, or a jackpot Bingo win, what
better way to celebrate than with cake? At 888Ladies bingo, we're celebrating
seven years of thrilling bingo games and fabulous prizes, so it's no wonder we
have cake on our minds. We've picked seven of the most extravagant for you to
drool over, because, as every celebrity knows, the bigger the celebration the
bigger - and more outrageous - the cake should be!

1. Barcelona star Neymar celebrated his 23rd birthday with a fabulous birthday
cake that featured a model of himself and his famous hat. At some birthday
parties, disaster strikes when no one has a knife to cut the cake. We don't
know whether that happened at Neymar's birthday bash, but his cake was cleverly
decorated with lollipop style treats, which should have been enough to keep his
guests happy if he needed a couple of minutes to search through his kitchen

2. Whether you're turning 20 or 90, a birthday with zero in it is always a big
event - so how about one with two zeros? Hampton Court Palace turns 500 this
year and a fabulous cake has been created by Choccywoccydoodah to mark the
occasion. The edible decorations illustrate the history of the Palace, so if
you're lucky enough to be offered a slice, you could find yourself nibbling on
a piece of Henry VIII's crown.

3. Controversy followed reports of Ciara Quinn's €100,000 wedding cake. This
magnificent cake was the creation of New Yorker Sylvia Weinstock, who has been
making cakes for the rich and famous for more than 30 years. Sylvia's favourite
ingredients include fresh fruit and imported chocolate, so no doubt her
creation was a hit with the wedding guests.

4. In 2013, Beyonce and Jay-Z wanted to celebrate daughter Blue Ivy's first
birthday party in style, spending a reported $2,000 on the birthday cake.
Sadly, we don't have a picture of that cake, but we're happy to report that
Blue Ivy's third birthday this year was celebrated with a fabulous rainbow
coloured cake. Good news if you don't happen to have a spare $2,000 lying
around: there are recipes online that you can follow to make your own rainbow

5. It may have been the height of good taste, but there's no doubt that Prince
William and Kate Middleton's eight-tier wedding cake deserves a spot on our
list of extravagant cakes. The royal couple's magnificent cake was a confection
of cream and white icing, and was decorated with around nine hundred exquisite
sugar paste flowers.

6. The marriage of Kim Kardashian to NBA athlete Kris Humphries may only have
lasted seventy-two days, but at least their wedding cake ensured they had a
wedding day to remember. Made by LA baker Hansen Cakes, the show-stopping black
and white cake cost $20,000 and was a towering six feet tall.

7. Guests at Kim's previous wedding may have wondered how she was going to top
a six foot wedding cake when she married Kanye West. Easy - with a seven foot
cake, of course! The multi-tiered fruit-layered cake was decorated with
pristine white frosting, and it took three people to carry it!

Seven is a lucky number for many people - could it be yours? If you fancy a slice of birthday luck, why not find out by heading over to 888Ladies and
