Top Chef’s Wedding Cake Made With Cheez-Its!

Yep, you read that right. Top Chef‘s Season 4 winner Stephanie Izard recently married craft beer consultant Gary Valentine, and the wedding cake — made by the pastry chef at Stefanie’s restaurant in Chicago, Girl and the Goat — was by far the coolest part. Every tier was a little different and totally surprising. One tier was made of chocolate cake filled with chocolate and peanut butter-covered Cheez-Its, while another included strawberry Nesquik with icing made out of chocolate and bacon buttercream. Now that’s a match made in foodie heaven.

The amazing menu didn’t just stop at the cake either. The couple served dishes like wine braised short ribs and rosemary potato gratin. Yum!

Bonus: They also ordered a groom’s cake in the shape of a mini beer cask — a nod to the groom’s profession. Genius!

Just because you’re not a celebrity chef doesn’t mean you can’t get seriously creative with your menu. A few of our favorites? This burnt almond torte, this funfetti wedding cake, and this donut tower cake!
