20 of the Yummiest Chocolate Wedding Cakes
Today is International Chocolate Day! And what better way to celebrate than by indulging my inner chocoholic with a roundup of the most delicious looking chocolate wedding cakes you ever will see. After all, who says a wedding cake must be a white iced confection? Especially when apparently more than 50 percent of adults prefer chocolate to any other flavor! Now if that isn’t a good enough reason to make your wedding cake a chocolate one, I don’t know what is…..
If you need another reason though, I have one! You see not only is chocolate a popular classic, its also bang on trend at the moment thanks to dark wedding cakes being all the rage (do take a peek at my post on breathtaking black wedding cakes if you missed it) A contemporary twist, and yummy alternative, to the traditional fruit cake or vanilla sponge, chocolate wedding cakes make a stylish statement. And are just as beautiful when decorated, if not more so!
Bright blooms, whether fresh or confectionery, create a beautiful contrast to the chocolate; berries and fruits compliment the richness, whilst silky smooth drizzles and ganaches give a glossy finish. So, if it’s a stylish substitute for the traditional wedding cake you’re after, you’ll find something to tempt your, and your guests, taste buds amongst these 20 delectable chocolate creations…..
