#WeddingWednesday | Beautiful Black Wedding Cakes

Hello and welcome to a fresh edition of #WeddingWednesday.

Over the years, we have been establishing ourselves as your go-to wedding styling concierge. We won’t stop! This year, we will be bringing to you many refreshing ways to look at your wedding ahead with interesting color combinations, linen and tablescapes or table layouts, little party props you can make yourself and of course, outfits to get you through your wedding celebration…and more.

We know some of you thought we discontinued this section but we really didn’t. We were a bit concerned if our audience consisted of engaged or soon-to-be brides at all. It seemed like no one was listening or the posts were not relevant compared to our regular style posts. But I’m happy to let you know that at the end of 2016, we knew a total of 6 couples who got engaged meaning that in fact, we now have people who will be listening and probably did have people listening on the low. If you are reading this, translate this to your life – never stop doing anything you love because you get discouraged along the way that no one is listening. It happens, but you’ve got to fight it. I’m happy for all those moments I was able to put a post together despite this inner conflict. See all the #WeddingWednesday posts you missed below before diving into today’s post.


Today, we will be taking a look at black wedding cakes because if you are not new here, you know we love black as an alternative color for weddings. You must have seen our black wedding dress inspiration post on Aisle Perfect, right? If you didn’t, go take a look.

I pulled these cakes from a variety of sources and where credit is not given, please understand that the original source was probably not available.

We will start with the plain black wedding cakes and as you scroll, you will see how truly opulent black is as a color for your wedding cake when done right. Another great combination is black and gold, so expect to see some opulent black and gold wedding cakes you will love. Lastly, expect black and white wedding cakes as well as dark floral wedding cakes. You know we love dark florals.

Ignore that this was a birthday cake but the smooth black finish and white text if you will, add a lot of class to this cake. And that ribbon adds a little shine to the matte cake.

I stalked this cake image till I found the creator. It's by Art and Appetite and this cake was featured in the March 2009 Issue of Cake Central Magazine. I think it is amazing how this cake has stood the test of time. Such a classic!

Black Floral Wedding Cakes

If your wedding is in the winter months, consider using those dull colors to your advantage on your cake.
