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