Black is a colour that people usually don’t associate with weddings. But personally, I think black is very beautiful especially if paired with white or gold.

Here we have a gorgeous 5 tier black and gold cake. Each cake has a different design and they are all beautiful. I especially love the design on the second one from the bottom, which is simply the date of the wedding and on the fourth cake is their monogram.

    My friend plans to get married once this pandemic dies down, and I want to help him make it very memorable. I like your idea of choosing a unique color aesthetic for her special cake! Maybe we should visit a bakery that can assist him with this.

    Your example of a black and gold wedding cake was easily my favorite from this article. The luxurious look that this can provide could go well with my sister’s plans to have a very sleek and extravagant wedding reception. I’ll suggest this design to her so she can ask for it when we help her order a custom wedding cake from a local bakery.
