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 Roses Wedding Cake

fb aphrodit +large pink flowers

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

Chocolate Wedding Cake with Sugar Flowers

New England-2

Until recently I never would have considered chocolate frosting on a wedding cake.

Don’t get me wrong – I love chocolate – but I always thought wedding cakes “had to” be frosted with white icing of some kind whether it’s fondant or buttercream.

Well, I’m happy to report that I’ve changed my mind and if I had to do my wedding cake over, it would be all chocolate.

As today’s cake proves, a wedding cake with chocolate icing can be beautiful and elegant and downright stunning. Read More

Chocolate Wedding Cake with Pink Blossoms

In just a few days we’ll all be celebrating true love by gifting boxes of chocolate, so this seems like the perfect time to think about a chocolate wedding cake!

And since pink is one of those “traditional” Valentine’s Day colors, I just had to look for a wedding cake that had something pink featured on it.

This chocolate wedding cake with tiny pink cherry blossoms fits the bill perfectly I think. Read More

Wedding Cupcakes: Let Them Eat Cake and Cupcakes

Sure, cupcakes were all the rage for weddings in 2013 and that trend is likely to continue this year.

But if you’re looking for something that goes beyond “just cupcakes” why not consider serving a wedding cake and cupcakes! That’s right – it’s the best of both worlds.

I saw this whimsical idea here and just had to share it with you because it’s really brilliant. Read More

Chocolate Sampler Wedding Cake

One of the most famous movie lines of all time is “life is like a box of chocolates” and now you can have a wedding cake that is just like a box of chocolates.

Check out this incredible – and rather unique – cake that features a sampler of chocolates on each tier. That’s right – this cake is your very own chocolate sampler box!

Who wouldn’t love this cake?

The cake was made to resemble a box of chocolates – it sits on a ribbon-trimmed board and the icing on the cake was even piped to mimic a box of chocolates. Read More

Chocolate Wedding Cake with Fruit and Chestnuts

It's around this time of year when I really start to feel the “Christmas spirit” and so I wanted to find a wedding cake that felt like the holidays.

I think this one comes pretty close.

When I saw this cake with the sugared fruit and candied chestnuts I immediately thought of 'sugar plum fairies' and 'chestnuts roasting by the open fire.'

Another reason I love this cake – it's' chocolate. And we all know you can never have too much chocolate cake, even at a wedding. Read More

S’mores Wedding Cake

When it comes to ooey, gooey treats nothing beats s’mores.

The marriage of melted marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers is one of the best flavor combinations ever.

Now imagine those flavors in a wedding cake. Tell me that doesn’t sound amazing.

And so, I give you the s’mores wedding cake.

This very modern twist on our favorite childhood treat is a four-tiered graham cake, with chocolate ganache and marshmallows. The Swiss meringue frosting is even “toasted” with the chef’s torch. Read More

Chocolate Ganache Wedding Cake

So here we are a week after Halloween and I still have chocolate, chocolate, chocolate on the brain! Admittedly that might have something to do with the three bowls of candy in my house.

Whatever the reason, I had to find a cake today that was all about the chocolate and would you look at this beauty?!

This three-tier cake looks like it is dripping with chocolate ganache. Really, what could be better than that? Read More

Chocolate Scrollwork Wedding Cake

Did you know today is National Chocolate Day?

As a lifelong fan of all things chocolate, I will admit that I am definitely a fan of the “including chocolate in your wedding cake” trend that I have been seeing lately.

Sure, anyone can have a chocolate tier or two (or four) in their multi-tiered wedding cake, but I'm talking about having chocolate front and center on your wedding cake.

Take this cake for example.

It doesn't matter what flavor cake is inside, we have chocolate on the outside! Read More
