In celebration of Halloween, I thought it would be appropriate to write about one of my favorite Halloween themed wedding cakes! Themed weddings usually go one of two ways...fun and unique or tacky. I made this cake a few years ago and I LOVED the way they decorated their wedding. I really wish I could have taken pictures of all their decor to show you because it really was amazing. But, since I didn't, let's just talk about the cake.
This wedding was a small, intimate affair at their home. The wedding colors were black and white with a pop of red. For the cake, they chose a simple smooth cake with a black silk and lace ribbon border. Black lace was the main fabric of choice for their celebration, so it was the perfect way to tie it onto the cake. Add little rhinestone center for a little shimmer and some red carnations for that pop.
The main decor throughout was black lace, candles, pop of reds, and skeletons (but not gross or overly done). They tied that into their cake table with a fun and quirky cake topper. And holding their cake servers were two skeleton hands. And the black toasting goblets gave it an extra dramatic effect.
If you're planning a Halloween or other holiday/themed wedding, let's talk. We can come up with some creative and fun cake designs for your wedding!
I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this cake! I just love everything about it! Alyssa and David married at Pecan Springs Ranch on a gorgeous fall day. This indoor/outdoor venue was the perfect setting for their celebration. With the setting being very natural...acres of trees, wildflowers, and a flowing creek it was only fitting that they choose a cake just as organic as the scenery.
Alyssa chose a design I like to call my horizontal textured design. I love this pattern because it's classic and versatile. By making minor changes in adornments, this cake can transform into multiple looks and themes. To tie the design in with her theme she circled each tier of her cake with some fresh greenery. And for a pop of color, a little lavender. Not only did the cake look divine, but that lavender made it smell heavenly.
And the taste was even better! Her melt-in-your mouth French Vanilla cake with Cream Cheese filling is a light and flavorful dessert to kick off the rest of the celebration!
I just realized it's been a few weeks since my last post. Goodness how time gets away from me. I recently attended the Wedding MBA in Las Vegas! At this 3 day convention I learned so much about different resources to improve our business, better communicate with brides, and various new products too! But I had the most fun learning about upcoming trends and thought I would pass them onto you. Have you considered any of these for your wedding cake?
