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!
