dark wedding cakes

It’s not secret that I’m a fan of dark and dramatic wedding cakes – especially those that use black icing.

Fall and winter are the perfect time of year to think about a non-traditional wedding cake.

Today’s cake would be the perfect late-fall or winter cake with its dark icing and fall fruit embellishments.

Sometimes an out-of-the-ordinary wedding cake is just what you’re looking for.

OK so maybe you haven’t given much thought to a gray wedding cake – after all gray is usually synonymous with dreary things.
