I recently had the opportunity to make my very first black wedding cake, for one of my absolute *favorite* brides of the year. Maybe ever.
I'd love to do a full blog entry on their wedding eventually - the visuals were so striking! The bride had a wonderful design vision, the venue was gorgeous... and you know I have a soft spot for brides who throw convention and "expectations" to the wind and really march to their own beat.
In the meantime, however... I'll present you with photos of their cake! This cake was themed around their Halloween / Goth / NIN wedding through and through - it was Blood Orange Truffle flavored! ("Our deeply rich, dark chocolate cake is filled with alternating layers of blood orange chocolate truffle ganache, and blood orange buttercream."). Not only specifically "Blood" orange - tee hee! - but that particular flavor cuts to a beautiful orange / deep dark chocolate brown. Seasonal colors!
The cake featured sugar roses in varying shades of gray, dusted with black accents. It also featured dark gray "lace" made from Sugar Veil icing - a unique product that allows a cake designer to pick up piped designs and drape it like fabric! Exciting... and meant that the entire cake was edible!
