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.


Sage, Chocolate Brown, and Cream Color Cupcake Heaven

I think I have expressed once, or twice…or perhaps even three times my love for cupcakes.  Apparently, this cupcake combo comes with a back story.  The cupcake stand was lost en route to the wedding venue so the baker improvised and turned wine glasses upside down and placed a plate on top of them.  To tell you the truth..I kind of think it’s classy.

The best part..please listen to the flavors of these bad boys: Read More

Oh my ganache!


Does anyone else have the strong desire to just whip out your finger and dig it right into this cake until your knuckle deep in chocolate ganache or is that just me?

This three tiered circle cake is slathered in bittersweet ganache and beautiful blue fondant bands around each tier. The flowers on the top and the side just make the cake pop with color.  I have to admit I love the placement of the flowers as well.. kudos to Hana and Posy in Philadelphia, Pa.  Now that we have appropriately Read More
