Leave it to Disney to turn an ordinary wedding cake into a magical work of art!
During Disney’s recent Fairy Tale Weddings Expo, the house of mouse unveiled their brand new creation: cake projection mapping. In layman’s terms, that means lighted images are projected onto a white wedding cake, thus creating a magical, whimsical, oh-so-Disney way to decorate your big day confection (watch the video above to see how it works).
Plus, according to Disney’s website, the cake is completely customizable — which means the projection doesn’t have to be of Tinkerbell as it is in the video (although that’s clearly a great choice). Anything the bride and groom want can be projected onto the cake, including their own love story.
