My friend Miriam was marrying her best friend Eric in a non-traditional wedding. She didn’t want a tiered cake and they both love chocolate. She asked me to make two chocolate cakes for 80 or so guests at their wedding party.
The round cake was the one they posed with for photos. It was chocolate orange with chocolate orange buttercream between the layers, all topped with chocolate ganache and chocolate buttecream roses.
The second cake was also floral but oval and a dark chocolate cake covered with chocolate and vanilla fondant. The chocolate fondant tasted somewhat like Tootsie Rolls.
Happy days to a sweet couple.
