If I’m being totally honest, I have chocolate on the mind this week.
The other day I gave props to the gorgeous chocolate crepe wedding cake and today I’m talking about this amazing chocolate truffle tower cake.
Look at this cake. It is almost too amazing to eat.
The cake is inspired by the corquembouche, a traditional French wedding cake. Each of the truffles is rolled in assorted cocoa powders which give the cake layers of color and flavor.
And if the truffles aren’t enough to grab you, underneath the chocolate goodness is a yellow butter cake that is filled and frosted with more chocolate – chocolate ganache to be exact.
This is basically the most perfect chocolate wedding cake ever.
And if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you could actually make this cake. You know, as a DIY project. Check out the details here.
You’ll find this truffle cake here.
I love chocolate cake.
And when we’re talking about wedding cakes I love unique chocolate cakes.
Like this crepe wedding cake, for example.
Look at how gorgeous this cake is! Layers of thin crepes sandwiched between dark chocolate glaze and hazelnut filling. It is pure chocolate bliss.
And the crepe cake is embellished with candied hazelnuts so you just know it’ll be delicious. Read More
I love chocolate. Especially chocolate candy.
And if I can eat a lot of chocolate candy without feeling guilty, that is even better.
Which brings me to today’s fun favor – personalized Hershey’s Kisses!
How cute would it be to have a bowl of Kisses at each table at your reception? Guests could sneak a few before dinner, and eat a few more after dinner. Read More

It’s always a good idea to have some sort of “lucky charm” on your wedding day.
And if you have the something old, new, borrowed, and blue why not add lucky elephant to the mix?
I’m loving these “lucky golden elephant” photo frames!
Elephants are a traditional good luck item and it’s even better when their trunks are raised as it means good fortune will be showered upon everyone! Read More
I woke up this morning to very chilly fall-like temperatures and the reality that fall really is just around the corner.
So what better time to start talking about fall wedding cake, right?
I love the idea of having a rustic fall wedding – especially if it’s still warm enough outside to host an outdoor reception.
Which brings me to today’s wedding cake – it’s very rustic but also elegant, which isn’t an easy combination to pull off. Read More

So now that we’ve “officially” said goodbye to summer, it’s time to start thinking about fall.
More specifically it’s time to start thinking about ideas for fall wedding cakes.
Now I’m not normally a fan of the color orange – it’s just one of those colors that rarely wows me. Plus most orange cakes end up looking like pumpkins, which is OK if that’s the look you’re going for. Read More
