Holy crumbs Batman, it's a cake fit for a caped crusader.

Becs Peel, of Wellington cake decorating company Stiletto Studio, presented the jet-black design at the Spring Wellington Wedding Show yesterday.

There was a family connection to the cake, she said. "My sister's getting married soon, and her fiance likes Batman. This is a bit of a practice run."

The final version would be half white to keep traditionalists happy, she said.

Another design on display featured some striking skulls, a design popular with young brides, Ms Peel said.

The Spring Wellington Wedding Show, held at the newly renovated Shed 6 and with 70 exhibitors displaying their wares, attracted a healthy crowd, event organiser Paula Bevege said.

Some brides were looking to put final touches on summer wedding plans, while others were looking ahead to 2015.

The show featured a film of the wedding of Paul McCarthy and Trent Kandler, a gay Australian couple who were married in Wellington in July under new same-sex marriage laws.

"We also had a number of gay couples through, so that was great," Ms Bevege said.
