Halloween is very nearly upon us so it seems like a good time to feast our eyes on some jaw-dropping and mouth-watering cakes fit for any Halloween wedding.

Traditional white wedding cakes are far too boring for a misfit wedding, so we encourage you to let your personalities shine through with your choice of cake.

Tracey at Black Cherry Cake Company is one of our favourite cake makers, here are some examples of the kind of cakes she can supply you with for your big day.

The artist in question is Tamara at Sweetlake Cakes and this gorgeously Gothic creation is called Vanessa:
