Chocolate Tiers

Sorry for the lack of posts.  My hard drive went out and since I haven’t learned any lessons on having a computer and important pictures, I never backed up my hard drive.  So it had to go to the computer wizards to get my stuff off of the bad one and put onto a good one and now here we are.  Enough whining, on with the pictures and post, right? 🙂

Wedding cakes are a great place to start, don’t you think?  This wedding was at the end of July.  The bride-to-be contacted me and said she just wanted a chocolate wedding cake.  All of it to be chocolate.  She had a picture of an idea of what she wanted and also added a recipe for Chantilly icing.  She wanted to know if I would try it for the filling because she had lived in Hawaii for a while and missed that icing.  I, of course, wanted to try this recipe.  It turned out to be a caramel-like filling for the cake…and, oh so yummy!

The bride-to-be was pleased, as was her fiance, who really didn’t say much because he was eating.  I like that in my customers! 😉

This is the final product on the day of the wedding…

Three tiers of chocolate cake filled with Chantilly icing.  I covered the cakes with chocolate buttercream and chocolate sprinkles on the sides.  I also used edible modeling chocolate for the curls.  It was definitely a rich cake!

Also, it happened to be the flower girl’s birthday.  The bride-to-be asked if I could put a “happy birthday” to her on the side of the cake.  How cool is that?  I bet the flower girl was on top of the moon with this…

It was fun to be out of the traditional wedding cake box with this wedding!
