We’re getting closer to Halloween which means the store shelves are stocked with all kinds of chocolate. And that’s not a bad thing in my opinion!
Fall seems like the perfect time to have a chocolate wedding cake – especially one that is frosted with deep, rich chocolate icing.
I’m particularly fond of today’s chocolate cake thanks to the rustic vibe the icing gives off. Read More

Having recently celebrated my own wedding anniversary, it’s always fun to think back to my wedding cake.
It was eight (yes, EIGHT) tiers of heart-shaped cakes. It was massive. But it fit my wedding theme – which was hearts. Everything was hearts.
I like a cake that fits in to a wedding theme or incorporates something from the wedding.
Just like today’s cake. Read More
There’s a chill in the air and we’re all looking to cover up in sweaters and jackets as the days turn cooler.
So, it seems like a perfect time to showcase a naked cake, right? Of course it does!
Naked wedding cakes are still somewhat of the rage and I’ll admit that I have found a few that look amazing. But I’m still a frosting kind of girl, so as pretty as these cakes are I prefer more icing.
But that’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with naked cakes. Take today’s cake for example – it is stunning. 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.

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
