See Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s Wedding Cake: The Puppet Theme Explained!

As if a Muppet-esque wedding cake weren’t adorable enough, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Therouxs back story is the icing on the cake.

Aniston, 46, and Theroux, 43, tied the knot in a secret ceremony at their Bel Air, California, home on Wednesday, subsequently sending the Internet into a flurry of excitement.

One of the cutest details from the intimate ceremony? The couple’s playful wedding cake – made by Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes – which was topped with a man and woman Muppet-like puppets (with total Avenue Q vibes) portraying the bride and groom. (The woman character is rocking what appears to be a white veil, though no word yet on what Aniston wore to the affair. We do have some ideas…)

The bakers “had no idea it was for a wedding,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They didn’t know until they saw the pictures this morning.”

According to a second source, the cake was vanilla and strawberry. “Jen and Justin are freezing a piece for their anniversary next year!” added the source.

In 2011, Aniston told PEOPLE about her love for the Muppets when asked about rumors that she’d secretly adopted a baby.

“Not adopting. There’s no nursery. Those are the two smallest things that exist [she points to two Muppets on a chair in her living room], my Muppets. Those are my Muppets,” she said.

“Will Speck, who was the director of The Switch, we went to FAO Schwartz, and we made Muppets of each other. That was the closest that I could get it looking like me, and that was the closest he could get it looking like him. They are the most fun, they’ve come with me on vacations. My girlfriends, we do photo shoots with them, it’s very silly. They’ve been to Cabo so far.”

We think it’s pretty sweet that Aniston has officially inducted Theroux into her Muppets obsession — in edible form, no less.

To keep the wedding a secret, the couple told friends that the party was for Theroux’s birthday. The ensuing festivities and a cake with two, not just one, very happy puppets erased any doubt this was merely a birthday party.

Those changing looks pictures make it clear she has had nose slimming surgery. (For the better!)
She has been most fortunate in her career given she is not good at acting. Now, Myrl Streep is a real talented actress.
I am sure she has a great personality and I wish her continued happiness.

I think it’s silly, but it’s not my wedding. If it brings them happiness, then bring in the muppets!

Looks like something you’d see at a 5 year old’s birthday party.

No explanation needed. It’s weird.

A wedding reception is celebrating the commitment two people make in front of their family & friends (and lets be honest, random plus one’s) and it’s their party – so they get to do whatever they want. Being 33 years old, I have attended 45+ weddings in the last 15 years; the weddings that have stood out in my mind, were the one’s where couples dared to be different and took the time to incorporate fun things into their ceremony and reception. And if they and their friends have an inside joke regarding muppets, then I think its a perfect cake for them.

It wa because he looks like count chocula but..

Does this mean Brad fans will finally believe that Jennifer has moved on from him? It took a bunch of boyfriends and two fiances (Vince Vaughn and justin) and now a husband but omg she’s over him

Those bakers aren’t very smart if they didn’t know that cake was for a wedding. It’s clearly a bride and groom. What else would it be for?

Em on

Silly cake toppers are fairly common. I went to a wedding that had rubber duckies on top of the cake. It’s fun and different. Plus if she loves muppets then it makes it even more special.

no on

Brad Pitt probably dumped her because I don’t think she ever wanted children, and he wanted a bunch. 46 now-doubtful she can get pregnant. The Muppets on the cakes are stupid.

Maci on

That’s…odd. But, to each their own I guess. Did Miss Piggy design the dress? Kermit perform the ceremony?
Ok I’m done. Congratulations!!! Justin is way hotter than Brad, IMO 🙂

Oh Jen, always rediculously funny, no doubt that’s our Jen’s way lol, so real a lovely lady, that makes her always exceptional, glad Justin kept up very nice with this deserving natural joyful lady, congrats and blessings to you both 🙂

You can also look at the yards per throw but that’s partially addressed in the total yardage stat above. You should be able to make your own health potions, PP potions, and Pokeballs. This, combined with the Great General that will likely result from their use, allows Greece to have an almost undefeatable classical-era push if timed correctly.

Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Thanks for the ideas you have shared here. Moreover, I believe there are a few factors that really keep your car insurance premium decrease. One is, to think about buying cars and trucks that are inside good directory of car insurance organizations. Cars which might be expensive tend to be more at risk of being stolen. Aside from that insurance policies are also in line with the value of your vehicle, so the costlier it is, then the higher the premium you spend.
