One of Disney’s newest head-turning movie releases was not like any other they’ve ever had! In case you missed it, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings unveiled their latest Wishes Collection wedding cakes last fall which feature “projection mapping”. Projection mapping technology produces high-tech cakes with stunningly vivid moving images (mini-movies) projected almost magically onto the sides. A white cake is created as a “blank slate” with all the animated images and colors projected directly onto the sides. Disney fans have the opportunity to feature some of their favorite characters on their wedding cake (such as a flying Tinker Bell or Cinderella in her carriage). Their cakes are fully customizable for their wedding couples, with each couple having the ability to display their story on their cake in graphics, videos and photos if they desire. This technology creates a wedding cake that truly comes to life.
With technology ruling our worlds more than ever before, is this the direction wedding cakes are moving? Will projection mapping be the big wedding cake trend in the near future? Of course if so, the delivery will need to come from event décor production companies – professionals in lighting, sound, video and media design and display, not from wedding cake designers and chefs. But the technology and resources are now out there and the results are jaw-droppingly impressive! We even found one company online that produces wedding cake projection mapping here in the Philadelphia area.
We always love the traditional, romantic and beautiful confectionary works of art we find at the weddings we film. For example, the wedding cake created for Jaimee and Stephen’s wedding, with its stunning painted roses and draping ribbons, was simply amazing! And we absolutely adored the four-tiered wedding cake shaped like a stack of perfectly wrapped white gift boxes displayed at Meghan and Brad’s Down Town Club wedding. We’d also be so excited to also see one of these high-tech animated cakes at an upcoming wedding!
