    Wow.  I really like it because it’s different.  A wedding cake does not have to be white…make it what you and your fiance want it to be.

    Goooooorgeous! Who says a wedding cake has to be white? Seriously? There are so many coloured cakes out there that this isn’t even on teh “tacky” radar.

    I think it’s gorgeous! Go with what you love. I was not aware that there was a rule that cakes had to be white.

    I love the metallic leaves and it looks very October wedding appropriate! 🙂

    I love the chocolate cake, the ribbon, the tiny dots above it. 

    The leaves are what throw me off a little. I think there might be too many of them for my taste and they are also a bit shiny, which may add to others feeling it is tacky.

    I think this photo is a great inspiration and if you love it as is, that’s great.  But if you want to keep the style and make a few adjustments I would recommend less leaves and making them not so shimmery.

    i like it. HOWEVER, only do this cake if you have a VERY skilled baker. i can just see those leaves ending up looking like ugly blobs.

    I love the chocolate color and the leaves…the ribbon and the pearls just look extra though. If you could have the ribbon and pearls removed, it would be gorgeous.
