chocolate wedding cake
I loooove the idea of serving a chocolate cake at a wedding reception.
It’s becoming THE thing to do – get away from the traditional white wedding cake and serve something a bit different.
Today’s featured cake would be gorgeous any time of year, but I’d love to see it in the early spring when the temperatures are still a bit chilly. Read More

It’s chocolate. And it’s a naked cake. But look at the scalloped icing between the tiers. Good gravy that’s gorgeous! Read More
Can you feel it? Fall is almost here!
And that means it is time to start talking about dark and dramatic – and in today’s case – chocolate wedding cakes!

Chocolate cakes as wedding cakes is a trend I can completely support.
I love the idea of serving up something nontraditional – like this dark chocolate wedding cake.
It’s so dramatic and unexpected which makes it perfect!
Of course a cake like this would be great at a winter wedding when it’s cold outside. Read More
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.
Care for some chocolate? Because I am having a totally chocolate attack. And now, so are you.
Martha strikes again, y’all. Don’t you simply love this? Inspired by the French croquembouche, which is a tower of cream puffs covered with spun sugar, Martha Stewart and Co. came up with this chocolate truffle wedding cake. This is seven layers of cake, coated with chocolate ganache. The hand rolled truffles are then coated in different cocoa powders for slight variation in color, cut in half, then Read More
This cake caught my interest on Pinterest. Why? Because I feel like it summarizes my life. I am a teacher so I spend most of my days sticky sweet and annoyingly traditional. However, every once and awhile I can easily flip to the dark side and my kids think “Hey, she’s a little nutty”.
So. That’s me. Half a traditional beautiful white cake and the other half a gorgeous chocolate groom’s cake. I have never seen a cake like this and to tell you the truth, I love it. The couple decided Read More
I picked this cake for one reason.
That’s what this cake reminds me of. The thin minty goodness that appears every March and then is unceremoniously ripped from the parking lots of grocery stores a few weeks later. I typically cry until June and then I forget about it again until February when my little friend comes around with her cookie selling sheet. Oh yes. I love Thin Mints.
I have no idea if this cake is actually mint flavored..but the light green and brown color combination remind me of them. Or perhaps it’s the chocolate leaves as the topper that make me think mint. Either way it’s a yummy looking cake!
