We’re starting off the new week with an incredible Steampunk inspired wedding cake. For those of you saying … steampunk, huh, what? Steampunk is a genre that combines Victorian era fashion and art with science fiction and futuristic technology. Think gears, metals and leather mixed with elegant vintage details. Sort of Mad Max meets Jane Austen.
Today’s featured design, created by the team at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes, is a gorgeous yet subdued interpretation of steampunk. From the rich browns, warm creams and vintage blue to the copper accents and ruffled stand. Leather bands are softened with delicate ruffles peaking out from above while a classic pocket watch adds a slight touch of metal. It’s a cake. It’s a fantasy. It’s a Victorian Steampunk Wedding Cake.
The team at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes shares some background about their design:
“This cake was inspired by both the vintage and steam punk wedding cake trends. The two small bouquets are all hand-sculpted sugar gumpaste decorations. Even the feathers are made of sugar and airbrushed to give a more realistic look.”
It’s romantic, vintage and quirky at the same time. A rich color scheme, soft metallics and oodles of charm make this Victorian Steampunk Wedding Cake truly unique. Thanks to the team at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes for sharing their lovely creation with us today!

I never really understood what “victorian steampunk” was, but I do love these colors!
