KekCouture Cakes Walk the Fine Line Between Grim and Delicious

We’re used to seeing cakes that are colorful, vibrant, and fun, but KekCouture is taking a completely different approach to this popular dessert – and it’s surprisingly effective. Their cakes are best known for their gothic vibe, and that’s exactly the part of their charm.

This Istanbul-based company was founded by Özlem Arabacı, who studied art and had a great interest in photography before throwing herself in the world of fine desserts. Her daughter’s first birthday inspired her to explore this passion further, and KekCouture was eventually born.

The cakes are instantly recognizable thanks to their elegant designs and dark colors, but gothic details and pitch-black background are also a part of the reason why they radiate such a grim vibe and often look like something straight out of a horror movie.

Don’t let this trick you into thinking that KekCouture doesn’t have colorful and fun cakes in store. The talent of the bakers knows no bounds, and they can make pretty much anything, but their gothic cakes are the ones that set them apart from everyone else.
