Watchmen Wedding Cake: The Symbolic Meaning

Watchmen Cake

There’s only one thing I envy more then Dr. Manhattans big, blue…eh…head? (come on, all you guys wish you had one!) I want to have a Watchmen wedding cake (well, really I want a grooms cake of Castle Grayskull) but the watchmen cake is pretty cool too. The top layer, the Comedian Button, which represents the Comedian character as showing people what they really are, with a smile, is carrot cake with Philadelphia filling. The middle tier, Rorschach’s mask, which constantly morphs in the movie/comic books, is a lemon drizzle cake with butter icing. The bottom tier, the Doomsday clock, is shown here close to the final minute…of catastrophic destruction, is Belgian chocolate. What an interesting way to portray your true feelings about getting married! Just think about it…constant morphing (life itself), catastrophic destruction (marriage itself), and then the creepy smiley face with blood on it…is there a murder being plotted? I don’t know…but the symbolism behind the cake probably means that the marriage is not destined to last. Just my opinion. Check out some more pics of the seperate tiers after the jump.
