Black used to be reserved for Goth brides and those getting married at the end of October, but now black cakes are trending as a hot wedding dessert. And we have to admit that the ones we’ve seen are really beautiful. Maybe it’s because the black stands out and you can see the cake from across the room. Or maybe it’s because black creates the perfect background for all of the other decorative features on your cake. Or maybe because it’s just so unexpected. As one bride said: “Black cakes are bad ass in the best way!” And as far as taste goes? A cake by any other color tastes just as sweet, so if you’re liking this new trend at all, definitely go for it! Here are some of our favorite #blackweddingcakes that we’ve spotted recently on Instagram! Which one would you pick?
