Kaley Cuoco's Wedding Cake Hung Upside Down From A Chandelier (Yes, Seriously)

"Big Bang" star Kaley Cuoco had one of the craziest wedding cakes we've ever seen. Why? Because it was hanging upside down all night, suspended from a crystal chandelier. You read that right -- upside down.

Cuoco posted the photo below on Instagram, with the caption "TY to #thebutterend for creating our magical chandelier cake. Literally hanging above us. EPIC", following her New Year's Eve fire-and-ice themed nuptials to Ryan Sweeting.

The six-tiered cake was made by The Butter End Cakery in Los Angeles. Owner Kimberly Bailey tells The Knot that creating the cake -- from planning to execution -- took about six weeks. As for how it stayed up, she said, "We had hung sandbags off the chandelier to make sure it would hold the weight of the cake. A center pull armature held the cake upright and board planks held the individual tiers."

Bailey's hard work paid off; the cake turned so many heads that Cuoco tweeted an additional photo of it.

Not only did the two-flavored cake look amazing, it was actually able to be cut while hanging upside down.

“If you look at the second to bottom tier, there’s a big hole in it,” Bailey told People. “That’s where she cut it. They cut it, they ate it.”

Cuoco isn't the first celeb to have an over-the-top cake. Mariska Hargitay and Peter Hermann's 2004 wedding featured a seven-foot tall, six-tiered cake topped with Swarovski crystals.

And in 2010, Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky reportedly spent $11,000 on a 500-pound, nine-tier cake, complete with 1,000 intricately designed sugar flowers.

We think Kaley's upside down confection still takes the cake (sorry, we had to!).
