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.

Naked Chocolate Wedding Cake

naked choclate 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

So here we are a few days post-Halloween.

Have you had your fill of chocolate and sweets yet? No? Good because today’s wedding cake is ah-mazing!

Check out this ooey and gooey chocolate caramel wedding cake.

While I’m not normally a fan of “naked” wedding cakes this chocolate creation has delicious caramel, salted peanuts, and chocolate ganache between each layer.

There’s no need for icing!

This cake is gorgeous and decadent and it’s perfect for a fall wedding!

This cake was created by pastry chef Jason Schreiber. You can find it here.

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

Naked Chocolate Cake

As we inch closer and closer to Halloween I love finding cakes that fit in the season!

Today’s naked chocolate cake is perfect for fall (and even a Halloween-themed reception).

I’m normally not a huge fan of “naked” cakes – I love icing too much to serve a cake that is seriously lacking in that department.

But this cake is too pretty to dislike! I love the dark chocolate cake and the hint of light pink icing peeking out from between the tiers. Read More

Chocolate Wedding Cake

Once again we’re talking about chocolate! I can’t help myself – with all the Halloween candy at the stores my brain immediately thinks “chocolate.”

I think chocolate cakes are perfect for fall and winter weddings – they’re dark and decadent and seem to fit in with the colors and themes at this time of the year.

A chocolate cake in the summer would just be too much. But in the fall, when it’s cold and blustery outside, it’s perfect. Read More

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

Chocolate Wedding Cake

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.

Almost.

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

Chocolate Chip Wedding Cake

If there’s one sweet treat I can never resist it’s chocolate chip cookies.

Hot out of the oven, dunked in a glass of ice cold milk…it’s the best snack ever.

So if you could have a wedding cake that was inspired by a chocolate chip cookie, why would you ever say no? Read More
