dramatic wedding cakes
It’s not secret that I’m a fan of dark and dramatic wedding cakes – especially those that use black icing.
That is such an unexpected choice for a wedding cake and it’s also perfect when you want to make a statement with your cake.
Of course a dark cake needs something bright to make it pop, and we love the addition of a cascade of bright white blooms. Read More
While we’re huge fans of traditional wedding cake with flowers and cake toppers and all that jazz, we do love a dramatic, non-traditional cake.
Like today’s dark and dramatic cake with black icing.

As much as I love the traditional white wedding cake, every now and then it’s nice to mix things up and think about non-traditional cakes.
The idea of a black frosted cake might seem odd to some but I think it’s a great idea for an elegant winter wedding.
A black and gold cake would be a bit too dramatic in the middle of summer. Read More
I have been craving chocolate lately.
I blame the displays of Halloween candy in the stores and the fact that I’m trying to avoid sweets.

There’s always drama during a wedding – whether it’s the caterer, the limo, or something else entirely, drama of some sort is a guarantee on your big day.
Heck, they even make reality shows about it.
But what if the drama came in the form of something sweet and gorgeous – like this wedding cake with black fondant.
Look at this beauty! How often have you seen a black wedding cake? Sure we’ve featured black and white cakes here in the past, but nothing like this stunner. Read More
I’m not feeling very subtle today. So I went in search of a cake that would set Brooke convention (you know, beachy, classic, pearls, blah blah blah) on its head. And this is what I found.
Isn’t this stunning? Bands of different red hues encircle an otherwise simple three-tiered round cake. A band of white is added on the top and bottom layers for contrast, and the whole thing is trimmed out in Read More
The cake I’m featuring today demands your attention.
This is no shy, shrinking violet of a wedding cake. No demure, “Oh, look how sweet and innocent I am. Really, just a place in the corner for me.” No sirree bobby. This cake declares itself the grande dame of wedding cakes, and expects you to perk up and notice – and use your best posture – when you walk into the reception.
Or is it just me? You know, attributing personalities to cakes?
