Maybe it's my inner goth speaking here, but I LOVE black wedding cakes. They are dramatic and make a bold statement. At first site you know it's a different kind of cake so your guests rush over to look at it.
As you can see with this cake, black can be very elegant. A feminine touch with lace, swirls and delicate flowers gives this cake the perfect balance of modern and elegant.
My favorite thing about this cake (besides working with this darling bride) was her desire to have something important to her on her cake. The lace was from her mothers wedding dress. This is a perfect example of how you can incorporate family heirlooms or a bit your own "vintage" pieces into your wedding. Having your own "vintage" incorporated into your wedding whether on your cake or other area's of your wedding day adds meaning as well as style to your special day. It will be those special touches that you will remember for years to come.
