When it comes to a wedding, there are a lot of things to consider, like picking a venue, deciding on entertainment, finding THE dress and, of course, choosing a wedding cake.
For newlyweds Kia Parsons and Billy Bunning, their wedding cake was not only gorgeous, but also satisfies the inner superhero fan in many.
Thanks to Julia Baker of Tier by Tier cake design, the couple was able to enjoy a happy compromise of the bride's wishes for an all-white tiered cake with sugar flowers as well as the groom's desire for the incorporation of the comic book superheroes he loved.

One side of the cake is covered in white fondant, with a cascade of sugar flowing along the tiers from top to bottom. The other side has the fondant pulled to the side revealing a tier for Captain America, Spiderman, Batman, and Iron Man.
After 12 hours of working on the sugar flowers and 28 hours spent on baking the cakes and assembling the tiers, Baker, as well as the couple, were more than pleased with the final product.
"Julia did such a fantastic job and we were completely overwhelmed by how brilliant it looked," Parsons said. "From most angles of the room, the cake looked like a traditional wedding cake - just what we wanted. It wasn't until the cake was moved for us to cut that our guests realized there was a hidden extra. Some didn't even realize until the photos went online after the wedding."
Baker enjoyed the surprised reaction to Parsons and Bunning's cake, but was also surprised herself when she realized that the cake was so popular.
"I have plenty more ideas to work on and I am calling these 'double-take cakes,'" Baker said.
