Traditional wedding cakes can be things of true, tiered beauty, but some couples prefer to kick it a bit more whimsical when it comes to dessert on their big day. That’s where sweet trends like pie tables, cupcake towers and doughnut walls come in.
But even those alterna-treats look downright conventional next to the saucy wedding cake a Miami couple — high school sweethearts Jessica and Tony Sanchez — served the guests who had gathered to celebrate their nuptials. Their choice? A pizza cake.

Thinking of eloping in Vegas? Do you love Taco Bell with a fierce passion that reserved only for your favorite fast-food establishment and the inventor of the magical fourth meal? Then you might want to pay attention.

Ina and Jeffrey
If there are two people more in love than Ina Garten and her husband, Jeffrey, we’re hard pressed to find them. These two met in 1964, and they’ve been married for nearly five decades. Recently they revealed to Food Network Magazine the story of their earliest days together — they’re every bit as adorable as you’d imagine, with memories of love letters galore — and how Ina prepared impressive meals on the go as she and Jeffrey traveled throughout Paris with little money to their name.

Whether it’s for a bridal shower or a wedding, the perfect gift is as fulfilling for the bride as it can be for you. But as we embark on the big wedding season of the year, there’s an endless amount of items to choose from when looking for a gift you know the bride and groom will use in their kitchen.
One of my favorites to give is a spoon and spatula bouquet. Wrapped up in lots of beautiful ribbons, you can turn a really fun idea into tons of well-priced utensils the newly married couple can enjoy using to cook meal after meal for a lifetime.

It’s a sunny Thursday in May at the Charles Krug winery in St. Helena, Calif., and Guy Fieri is giving Robert Irvine a shoulder massage.
In a few minutes, Robert will be marrying his girlfriend of three years, professional wrestler Gail Kim, and Guy, one of Robert’s best men, is giving the usually unshakable Restaurant: Impossible host a rubdown to calm his nerves. Just a half hour earlier, Robert was singing a different tune: “I feel the calmest I’ve ever been. I haven’t screamed, not once,” he said as he looked over the grounds where the cocktail hour and reception would take place. This whole wedding is his brainchild — conceived, planned and executed with the same military efficiency Robert brings to the massive two-day restaurant overhauls on his show. But today it won’t be a restaurateur who is dazzled by his work; it will be Gail. Robert has kept her in the dark about the details of the party, including the main event: the food.
“No one goes in there until I say it’s OK!” Robert barks, pointing to the venue. (So much for not screaming.) Satisfied with how everything looks, he throws back a beer in five gulps and keeps moving; the ceremony is about to start.
With Guy at his side, Robert beams as his daughters, Annalise, 15, and Talia, 11, read poems to the crowd, then he lets out an audible sigh of relief when Guy produces the ring and he exchanges vows with Gail.
