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.

Chocolate Wedding Cake

chocolate cake

If there’s one non-traditional wedding cake that I’ll always be a fan of it’s the chocolate wedding cake.

Everyone is expecting a cake with white icing, even if the cake inside is a variety of flavors. So why not wow your guests and surprise them with a chocolate frosted cake?

The cake flavors could vary – chocolate, marble, yellow – but to see a wedding cake frosted with gloriously delicious chocolate icing? That would be incredible! Read More

Orange Wedding Cake with Chocolate Flowers

With Halloween only two days away I was searching for a wedding cake that would be the perfect centerpiece for an holiday wedding.

I think this orange and dark brown cake is the one.

After all, you can’t go wrong with a cake that features the best Halloween colors, right?

I love that the orange glow of this cake is more of a golden orange hue, rather than a pumpkin orange. Read More

Tree Trunk Wedding Cake with Leaves

The leaves are falling from the trees in earnest around here and I have to admit I’d prefer if the leaves stayed on the trees for a bit longer. Because we all know that once the leaves have fallen the snow takes over.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Today we’re talking about leaves. Bright colored fall leaves.

Just like the fondant leaves on this “tree trunk” wedding cake.

I just love the cool fall vibe of this cake. Read More

S’mores Wedding Cake

If there’s one sweet treat that almost everyone loves it has to be s’mores.

The ooey, gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers – well, it’s heavenly.

So why wouldn’t you want your wedding cake to be a s’mores wedding cake? I can’t think of one reason.

This gorgeous wedding cake is that s’mores wedding cake we’ve all dreamed of and it looks delicious. Read More

Brown Wedding Cake with White Flowers

The first day of fall is about a week away so it’s about time to start showcasing some gorgeous fall wedding cakes.

And while I’m not normally a fan of brown as a color, I do love brown wedding cakes. I think it’s because they look so dramatic and they really lend themselves to the fall season.

This dark brown wedding cake with white flowers is stunning.

The three-tier cake features a dark espresso colored icing accented with delicate white flowers and it is beautiful. Read More

Oreo Cookie Wedding Cake

I don’t know about you, but if I buy a package of Oreos it takes every ounce of willpower I have to not eat the entire package of Double Stuf Oreos in one sitting.

Which means I’m totally in love with this Oreo cookie wedding cake alternative.

What’s not to love? It’s made completely of Oreo cookies. Just give me a big glass of ice cold milk and I’ll see you later.

In all seriousness (Oreos are serious business after all) I really do love this idea. We’re talking about a three-tier “cake” created entirely of Oreo cookies. Read More

Barrel Wedding Cake

Now this is a fun wedding cake!

How often have you seen a wedding cake shaped like a barrel? Never, right?

Well now you can say that you’ve seen it all.

I absolutely love the charm and humor of this wedding cake from our friends at Hockleys Cakes over in the United Kingdom!

The story behind this cake is that the reception was held in a rustic, traditional English pub and the cake was created to reflect the venue. Now that’s a pub I’d like to visit! Read More

Whimsical Wedding Cake

I’m always on the lookout for totally unique and somewhat out-of-this-world wedding cakes.

Why? Because sometimes that “traditional” wedding cake just won’t do it.

Which is why I’m head over heels for today’s cake. I present to you the “West End” cake from our friends at Hockleys Cakes over in the United Kingdom.

This stunning creation has so much going on, but it’s not overwhelming in any way. In fact, it all just works. Read More

Chocolate Roses Wedding Cake

I love roses, which means this cake is quite possibly my favorite cake in a very long time.

This cake is another incredible creation by our friends at Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom and it’s gorgeous!

Called the ‘Aphrodite,’ the cake is a vision of pink and white roses.

The three-tier cake is covered in 180 chocolate roses in addition to pink sugar roses. And it’s all hand-crafted.

Not only is this cake a stunner, but…180 chocolate roses! That is a lot of chocolate. If you’re a chocolate fan this is definitely the cake for you.

I love the subtly of the white chocolate roses and the bright color pop from the pink sugar roses. It  would be such a lovely cake at a spring or summer wedding, especially if you were incorporating roses into your floral theme.

Many thanks to our friends at Hockleys for sharing this creation with us.

Yellow Roses Wedding Cake

There’s just something about the color yellow – it’s so bright and cheerful and instantly puts me in a good mood.

The same can be said for this wedding cake.

It’s bright and cheerful and very elegant.

Now, yellow might not be your first color choice when deciding on a wedding cake, but I have to ask “why not?” Read More
