My Owner liked the information a showed to you about the Gothic Wedding~ Yeeey~! However, he was asking almost all the time: “Where’s the Cake? I care about the Cake, so where is it?!”. So here’s some information about it that he wanted me so badly to share~ He doesn’t care about marriage, but about the cakes and sweets, always.
To begin with, Gothic wedding cakes has it’s origins in the nineteenth century Gothic novels by Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley. The modern Goth has been an offshoot of the punks and skinheads of the 1970’s, teenage rebels who were and are drawn to the macabre visions of graveyard monsters and the regalia that goes with them. For some middle class parents, It must have been a shock to come home and find their teenagers with green hair, black lipstick and palid moon-tan skins.
However, even Goth teenagers blossom into adults, and most will still pay a moment’s homage to their past with gothic wedding cakes by having a gothic wedding theme for their wedding day.
