It's the most wonderful time of the year, cake lovers: that blessedly spooky season when we can shop for Halloween and Christmas decorations all at the same time.
I'm getting ahead of myself, though; we still have a few days before Halloween, which means it's time to glam it up with spooky sweet wedding cakes, like this gorgeous Gothic number:
[By ArchiCAKEture in Bulgaria]
Look closely; two of those "rubies" are really a vampire love bite!
Or, if you prefer a partner who keeps you in stitches:
(By Cakes By Summer in Texas)
Loving that black-and-white gradient with the little red hearts. So classic and monstrously sweet.
I don't think this next one's a wedding cake, but wouldn't it be cool if it were?
(By Sweet Art Cakes in California)
After all nothing says "welcome home, newlyweds" like a happy little haunted house.
Or should I say, "Haunted Mansion?"
(By Jam Cakes in the UK)
Yep, I spy the iconic HM wallpaper in there! Great skull cameos on the swags, too, though I can't help wishing the toppers were the Bride & Groom from the ride.
Aha, but here comes the next best thing: skeletal Marie Antoinette style bride!
[By Monika Arispe in the UK]
And I think she may be floating?! Awwwwesome.
Another non-wedding cake that COULD be a wedding cake if the couple is stylin' enough:
(By Karen Dodenbier, hobby baker in the Netherlands)
Poppies! Aww, I love poppies. And look at the spiderwebs!
This lovely is from a Maleficent themed wedding shoot:
That dark forest vibe is gorgeous!
Here come a couple of love birds:

And they're nestled inside a carved tree trunk of cake!
Such a clever design, it's like a cake shadowbox.
I'll admit it would take a very unique and/or brave bride to choose a Black Widow spider cake for her wedding cake, but HEAR ME OUT:
(By Carolinchens Zuckerwelt in Germany)
See? That could be the groom on the side! :D :D :D
Or you could go with something dark and dreamy:
(By Sweet And Swanky Cakes in Oregon)
I love the reflective gold accents - and that lace! Wowza.
And finally, a half-floating Gothic tower that manages to look surreal and romantic all at the same time:
(By Kek Couture in Turkey)
Jaw: dropped. The more I look, the more I see to love: the hidden damask pattern, the velvety green ombre, and that intricate lace-wrapped base. AHHH-mazing, and the perfect wedding cake for any modern Morticia and Gomez. ;)
I hope you guys enjoyed! Have a sweet Sunday, and a happy Halloween!
