White wedding cakes might be traditional, but you don’t have to have one.

Black wedding cakes are having a moment –  and not just at offbeat/goth weddings. It’s not bad luck to have one at your wedding – if done well they can be elegant and chic.

You can pair black up with many other colours – including white, if you’re going for a monochrome theme. Black also pairs well with other cake trends like metallics, marbling and geometric patterns. It makes a great base obviously for a chalkboard cake, and looks great with marbling.

 

If you opt for a black cake, it will look dramatic and will have everyone talking.

3. Classic

 

You said Yes! 💍 Say I Do! with a point of difference. Im loving this modern take on the classic wedding cake 🖤 Tip: You can still keep your wedding classy without it being gothic. Keep your theme clean and minimalistic. This cake would look stunning against a white backdrop. You can even dress and contrast the cake with white peonies as decoration to take it from looking elegant to pretty.
