Weddings are usually expensive, but some celebrities take things to the extreme. They can easily shell out millions of dollars on a glitzy ceremony, and many have dropped more than a pretty penny on a fancy cake. Some celebrity wedding cakes have cost the couple tens of thousands of dollars -- and all for something that people are just going to eat!

It won't surprise anyone to know that royal marriages account for some of the most expensive celebrity wedding cakes, and just weddings in general. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding cost a reported $45.8 million, and most of that probably went to ensuring the security of all the high-profile guests and the venue.

Despite the high price tag on Meghan and Harry's big day, their cake was actually a relatively minuscule cost compared to other royal weddings -- and even other celebrity weddings. There are famous couples who have paid out the wazoo for crystals on their cake, so many tiers it's hard to count, real flowers, edible sugar flowers, and more. Usually, it would seem that the dress and the venue would be the biggest ticket items for a marriage ceremony, but these cakes are right up there.

In fact, some of the final numbers are so high, that it makes the celebs who just spent a few thousand look like they were on a budget. No one really ever needs to buy an $80,000 wedding cake, but they sure are fun to look at. 

Here are 20 of the most expensive celeb cakes of all time, ranked from lowest to highest price tag.
