Black wedding cakes are the latest wedding trend, and we’re in LOVE

Well, look at you, all engaged and stuff – congrats! 

As you probably already know, wedding planning is no joke (honestly, we're sweating just thinking about it!). 

No stone can go unturned, and no cake should go untasted – EVER. 

However, it can be hard to know what to look for in a wedding cake, especially with so much other planning going on around you.

Lucky for you all, we've done the research and hard work, so you don't have to! 

How does a gorgeous black wedding cake sound? I know – it sounds bizarre, but trust us. 

Check out these stunning confectionery creations, and you may find yourself longing for a black wedding cake:

7. Oreos – stack em high! 

I do not really want our wedding cake to be made from OREO cookies, but I think that this could be a really cool addition to a candy bar. And, to make it more festive, we could make each tier out of a different flavor of Oreo cookies.

8. This gothic cake looks almost too good to eat!
