This week’s focus at Sweet Williams Award Winning Cakes has been on gothic-style cakes – a unique and quirky style of cake with an eerie feel. Cakes with a Gothic theme have their origins in nineteenth century Gothic novels by Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley and can include anything from Hallowe’en to Hollywood – dark ideas. Release the rebel in you….

This spooky style of cake is becoming popular for weddings, too – a definite talking point among your guests and an unusual wow factor.

The cake in this image was produced for a birthday and can easily be adapted for Spiderman themed cakes, too.
