Gothy Wedding Cakes

October 16th, 2008 by Cobwebs

Bride of Dracula CakeI ran across this gorgeous “Bride of Dracula” wedding cake at the Pumpkin and Spice site, and realized that I’ve got a few other spooky wedding links to share.

Designs by Dorian has a number of unique cake toppers, including some cuddly bats and “‘Til Death Do Us Part” matching tombstones.

Freed’s Bakery in Las Vegas does some marvelous spooky designs which utilize the whole cake as canvas. Their Halloween Cakes section has a couple of designs, but for some reason they no longer directly link to Weblock, which is the one I like best. If you’re not in the Las Vegas area, perhaps your local bakery could use these as inspiration.

This is more than a little bit cutesy, but the Once Wed site has instructions for making a “Newly Webbed” wedding cake topper out of styrofoam balls and pipe cleaners.

Tim Burton-inspired cakes are popular, too. Pink Cake Box has some lovely designs, like this Corpse Bride wedding cake and this Nightmare Before Christmas groom’s cake. The Sugar Baker did this NMBC wedding cake; I particularly like the bone swagging on the second tier.

It’s a bit close to the date this year for delusions of grandeur, but if you’re planning a Halloween wedding next year, this would be a good time to google around and collect ideas to show your baker.
