Naked Chocolate Wedding Cake

OK, I’ve been featuring a lot of naked wedding cakes lately – which is odd since I’m a frosting lover.

But today’s cake is THE naked cake of the season so far.

First, it’s chocolate! And second, there’s a cascade of chocolate glaze on top of the cake that takes it to another level entirely.

Oh. My. Chocolate. Read More


Winter Wedding Cake

Even though it is December that doesn’t mean you have to forgo the fresh flowers on your wedding cake!

There are so many lovely ways to embellish your winter wedding cake and today’s cake might be a new favorite.

I love the simplicity of this cake. The two tiers feature simple but seasonal icing in both white and chocolate (an added bonus for chocolate fans). Read More


Naked Chocolate Wedding Cake

I have a confession to make – I love Oreo cookies.

Which is probably why I had to choose today’s wedding cake to showcase. It looks like a stack of Oreos. OK, well it looks like a stack of Oreos to me.

I’ll also confess that I’m not a huge fan of naked wedding cakes. I’m too much of a frosting fan to purposely eat a cake that lacks frosting.

However, this naked dark chocolate cake is really stunning because of its lack of frosting. The white icing peeking out between the tiers adds just the right amount of drama to this cake. Read More


Rustic Fall Wedding Cake

It’s November! There is no denying it now – we are celebrating all things fall!

For me, a fall-inspired wedding cake features dark hues with some pops of dark colors.

Take today’s cake for example.

I love the rustic vibe of this cake from the chocolate ganache icing that gives the cake a “woodsy” feel to the dark fruit and flowers used as accents. Read More

Take today’s wedding cake as an example. This tree-inspired cake would be perfect at your fall wedding, especially if you’re hosting a rustic party. Read More

Is it fair to say that I have chocolate and raspberries on the brain? You can thank my husband and our loyal Facebook readers for this one!

You may have caught on to the fact that this half of the Cake Diva Duo is a reformed baker.  Gone are the days that I stress myself out, worrying about brides and contracts and gravity Read More
