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.

Green and Brown Wedding Cake

thin mints

I picked this cake for one reason.

Thin. Mints.

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!

Vegan Nirvana: Mocha Almond Fudge Avocado Groom’s Cake

Mocha Almond Fudge Avocado Groom's Cake

If you visit many trendy bakery sites and blogs (as I do), sooner or later, you are going to come across a whole list of “free” things – gluten-free, sugar-free, casein-free – and you might be tempted to say, “Hmmm, go ahead and add taste-free to that list, too.”

Well, I will have to say, respectfully, that –free doesn’t have to be devoid of culinary character.

Are you a bride – or a groom – looking to feature a vegan choice Read More
