Halloween wedding cakes

Halloween wedding cakes that will make you quake in your boots (while wanting to stuff your face!)

I fell down the rabbit hole of intricate and detailed wedding cakes and found some SPECTACULAR Halloween wedding cakes by the always amazing UK-based Black Cherry Cake Company. ‘Tis the season to make lists of all the Halloween movies to watch while crafting up wedding decor and favors, so be inspired by these cakes.
