This upside-down chandelier cake, created exclusively for actress Kaley Cuoco's wedding is quite possibly the pièce de résistance of all hanging wedding cakes. The Butter End created this one-of-a-kind, show-stopping chandelier cake. Exactly how they suspended six large tiers of cake from the bottom of a crystal chandelier appears to be an impressive feat of engineering. We love that the cake itself mimics the crystal droplets with Marilyn Monroe-esque jewels dripped from each tier. And we all know you are wondering how they could possibly cut a cake of this design. Butter End assures us that they had three cake engineer experts on hand to assist the happy couple!
