Chocolate Wedding Cakes
Chocolate. Say it with me. CHOCOLATE. Who doesn’t love chocolate? In the U.S., most wedding cakes, until recent years, were drab, white, and practically flavorless. Just sweet and more sweet. But more and more, we’re seeing different flavors, and different combinations. And not to be left out, chocolate is a flavor in the forefront. A couple may choose plain chocolate, but more often than not, we see variations on the theme – mocha, chocolate espresso, red velvet. But should a couple cling steadfast to tradition, they can always relegate the chocolate to the groom’s cake. Often a foil to the white, statuesque, center-stage wedding cake, a groom’s cake is often whimsical, and frequently expresses some quirky aspect of the groom’s or couple’s personality. Sometimes the flavors vary, but quite often, the groom’s cake is – you guessed it – chocolate. Dark to the wedding cake’s light. Rich to the wedding cake’s austere. The perfect yin and yang, the perfect foil, the perfect complement. If your couple-heart lies in the direction of chocolate – go for it! It’s your wedding, after all.
It’s been a really long time since we’ve showcased a cake that could pass as a groom’s cake.
But today we have a perfect groom’s cake!
This naked chocolate stout cake would be the ideal cake for the groom. (Of course it would also work as a non-traditional wedding cake, but we really like the idea of a groom’s cake). Read More

I love the idea of serving cupcakes at a wedding reception.
They’re fun and functional. And everyone loves cupcakes!
But what if you want to serve cupcakes but still have a traditional wedding cake to cut too? Simple – serve both!
This is a fun concept – have a small, one tier wedding cake as the “main” cake – basically for the couple to cut – and then surround it by gorgeous cupcakes. Read More
