With the spooky season just around the corner, lots of people wanted to know how to make their own halloween wedding cake. So we have some goolish inspiration for you. We're loving this classic cake from Bittersweets in Stow Ohio, just a traditional wedding cake done in reverse - and a skull for decoration.
Drizzling red icing or strawberry syrup over a classic wedding cake quickly turns it into something very freaky, this one even has a brain! Via Cake Central. Or how about red icing with dark chocolate drizzle, yum, via Offbeat Bride. For a simple DIY idea, decorate cupcakes with these printable tombstone toppers from the 'i do' it yourself shop. Or for the more traditional just go a little bit scary with dark chocolate and red roses, pic via the Knot.
Wedding cakes with folded origami cranes were popular too. You can check out our origami inspiration from last September. Spoon and Fork in Croydon, NSW made this beautiful hand painted version rather than attach origami decorations which is a lovely alternative.
Hello magazine in the UK also announced this month their top 10 trends we should be looking out for in weddings cakes:
- Very tall-tiered cakes
- Cakes inspired by the wedding gown
- Ribbons and frills
- One big statement flower
- Hand painted cakes
- Sugar flowers
- Edible lace
- Balanced cakes - tiered cakes that aren't stacked directly on top of each other
