Looking for a wedding cake that's a little different? Let Paul introduce you to the striking Black Noir Wedding Cake, inspired by the starkly contrasting blacks and whites of the French film genre.
This elegant design would suit a true film buff or lovers of vintage chic. It's an easy and quick cake to make, plus it can be adapted in a great many ways to suit all sorts of occasion.
Take a peek at this tutorial to learn how to work with cake lace, create lovely edible flowers, basic edible paint work and how to decorate a delicate design.
We'd love to see your take on the Black Noir Wedding Cake - so make sure you share your snaps with us on our Facebook page.
