This Wedding Cake Trend Is for Daredevils Only

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have thought themselves quite the pair of rebels when they decided to break from the traditional fruitcake at their wedding, but that’s nothing compared with this daring new trend: dangling cakes.

While we can’t give the precarious trend points for practicality, we gotta say, it is eye-catching. (Just maybe keep the ring bearer and flower girl away.) Here are some other dangling cakes that make us as nervous as they make us hungry.
