Retro Gothic Wedding Cake

This rockabilly style wedding cake has the most hilarious cake topper.

Graveyard Themed Gothic Wedding Cake

The message behind this gothic wedding cake is much more romantic than it may seem at first glance. The gravestones and church candles create a deathly theme and the writing ‘Love Never Dies’ brings it all together to speak a message that is really beautiful. We love the roses and metallic skulls; they add an artistic flare to the cake.

Detailed Gothic Wedding Cake

The detail and intricate icing on this wedding cake is just beautiful. The top two tiers have very gothic styled icing décor which drizzles down to the bottom tiers that have a more delicate and wildlife feel to them. The colours are simple and striking and the gothic feel is subtle enough to appeal to most couples.

Green and Black Gothic Wedding Cake

Combining skulls and roses on a gothic wedding cake is a really nice touch which a lot of cake designers tend to use. It works really well with this design and here at hitched we couldn’t stop talking about the emerald green floral middle tier.

Black and Gold Gothic Wedding Cake

Black and gold are such a glamorous colour combination, especially on a four tier cake like this one. The ruffle icing at the bottom adds beautiful volume to the design and the gold embossed design is a rich touch.

From simple and sleek to graveyard goth, this wedding cake is not for the faint hearted.

Metallic Gothic Wedding Cake

Metallic wedding cakes are a big 2017 wedding trend and pairing that with a gothic theme is pure genius. The mix of gold, silver and bronze is perfect and we love the use of chains and necklaces to hold the bones, teeth and moon shapes. The bronze skulls that hold the cake up are beautifully made and we really do love it.

Tattoo Gothic Wedding Cake

If you’re a bride who rocks tattoos, or just a couple who have a love for ink, you will obsess over this tattoo themed wedding cake.

Halloween Gothic Wedding Cake

The pumpkin and ghost detailing on this wedding cake makes it the best choice for a Halloween wedding. Dark purples and greens make great gothic cake colours and the bride and groom cake topper gives the whole creation a ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ feel to it which works so well. We also love the cute ‘simply mean t to be’ writing, it’s very romantic.
