With temperatures dipping and the air around us growing light and crisp come fall, opting for a richly colored cake is a surefire way to add warmth and depth to your wedding decor. For all-out drama, go black—a matte finish keeps things understated and artful, while icing with a higher sheen provides a more posh and glamorous feel—and add texture and interest with neutral flowers, or even a chic metallic tier. If black is a bit too dramatic for your taste, give berry, crimson, teal, navy, or dusty blue a try, and for a can’t-resist casual confection, opt for a naked cake made with rich, chocolate layers. Here are 15 dark, dramatic cakes that’ll warm up your fall or winter wedding.
