Aztec-Inspired Skull Cake

At first glance you might not notice the middle layer of this cake made by Santa Monica-based The Butter End Cakery, shaped as a skull and disguised in flowery fondant shapes and glitter. Take a closer look — it's watching you with a creepy, menacing glare.

Web-Topped Cake

Rather than a trio of white layers decorated with pearl trim, one couple opted for a smoky swirled cake crafted by New York-based Cake Alchemy, topped with a real spiderweb and a white skull. Gorgeous, but it seems like something you'd be more apt to find at a funeral, no?

Exploding Dinosaur Cake

Instead of the classic layer cake, how about instead having a monstrous dinosaur rising out of an exploding tree trunk (complete with what looks like blood and gore — or lava), as Cake Alchemy crafted here? And yes, that is the bride in one hand, groom in the other. Looks like Dino is hungry.

Wedding Day, Bloody Wedding Day

Yes, this is a wedding cake, crafted by Connecticut-based J-Cakes. Note to the groom: Don't anger your bride…

Corpse Bride Cake

Inspired by the dark Tim Burton film, New Jersey-based Pink Cake Box crafted this Corpse Bride for one couple's wedding day. We just hope this bride hasn't risen from the dead just to marry her husband-to-be.

Nightmare Before Christmas Cake

Yet another Pink Cake Box creation inspired by the Tim Burton classic The Nightmare Before Christmas… While it might appear creepy to the eye, we'd devour a slice in a second without pausing to think — carrot cake with hazelnut buttercream, vanilla with raspberry Chambord, chocolate with peanut butter buttercream, and red velvet with vanilla? Oh my!

Chains and Skulls Cake

Cake Alchemy crafted this cake for one soon-to-be-wed couple. Yet, the chains and skulls remind us of balls and chains, and being imprisoned. Wait, is that what marriage is?

Skeleton Cake

Bony skeletons, sticky spiderwebs, fluttering bats, and creepy, colorful zombie faces… It's not the typical adornment to a three-tier wedding cake. But for one couple, it’s exactly what they wanted Cake Alchemy to craft for them.

So we've rounded up real examples of DIY wedding cakes with tips about how they prepared, what they wish they'd done differently, and most importantly, pictures of how the ordeal turned out.

This first example is one I made many years ago, giving you an example of what an amateur baker could accomplish, along with tips about how to give a tiered cake structure so it doesn't collapse. It's rustic and unrefined, but it was an easy project for a beginner.

Pick Your Flavor

You can go with a standard vanilla wedding cake if that's what you prefer, but modern brides have a world of flavors available to choose amongst. Chocolate wedding cakes are becoming more popular every year, but you might also want to consider other flavors like lemon and lime or raspberry. Your baker can even whip up custom flavors for the cake and add a second, complementary flavor with a layer of filling. In fact, each tier of your cake could be a different flavor combination - all disguised under the same elegant decoration.

By nature, weddings are already imbued with romance&mdashyou're celebrating a marriage, after all. Still, some couples want to go the extra mile to plan a wedding that not only feels romantic, but is styled romantically, too. What exactly does "romantic" mean in the context of event design? We associate the term with anything that's elegant and dreamy&mdashthink classic details in a soft color palette and an optional touch of whimsy. One of the best ways to achieve the theme is through your wedding cake. That's why we've compiled a list of some of our favorite romantic desserts.

When in doubt, gravitate toward a simple tiered confection that's decorated with blooms, like this one by The King Cake. Know that that's not your only option, however, as the following desserts will prove to you. Try accenting with other fine or formal touches, including ribbons, piping, or ruffles. Or, focus on the shades that you use&mdashwe like baby blue, light pink, pastel purple, and creamy yellow. You can also look to your celebration's specifics, from the venue to the season, for inspiration. Thematically, romantic is often blended with rustic or traditional.

Here, we present some of the best ideas for a romantic wedding cake. Whether you're fixated on florals, a towering structure, or even a delicate flavor, there's a dessert that might speak to you and your nuptials. Overall, the following options are as sweet as romance itself, which means that once guests see something like them, they're bound to fall in love at first bite.
