They remind me of weddings from the 80s and 90s, although if done right it could look nice I guess.

I dont know what to think about them. It was never something I considered. They are a more “traditional” element, I guess. To me, they look really, really dated. I always picture the ones with the fountain and the bridges all over. Like this:

I am not a fan…like PP I think they look really dated.  I actually hadn’t even heard of them before!

Even with the photo I’m still confused; what exactly is it that makes something a fountain cake?

 

[ETA] Looking closer, are those actual literal water-gushing fountains next to those cakes? I have never heard of that. It strikes me as a little bit weird.

@IvyClimb: Yep actual working fountains! My aunts got married in the late 80s/early 90s and both had fountain cakes with stairs, haha.
