This was one of the most fun cake assignments I’ve ever had – to make his & hers black & red cakes. The wedding theme was black & red – anarchist & communist – unity! The anarchist cake was vegan chocolate, the communist was almond – and both had vegan buttercream and sugar glaze. They were a hit. The groom said, “Totally brilliant cakes. Really made the reception! Truly.”

These cakes are 14 inches – probably the biggest size I use – and let me tell you, there is a lot of food coloring in there to make the red red and the black black. Which is all nice except it totally turns your mouth colors, and now I have TONS of black icing left over. I need to make some spider-themed cupcakes or something!
