Chocolate Cakes For Fall Weddings
There are certainly a large variety of chocolate cakes from which to choose. You can go with the classic basic chocolate, or choose a more exotic flavor like chocolate fudge, mocha, or truffle. Another tasty idea is to layer a chocolate cake with a fruit filling, such as raspberry or apricot. And then there is the frosting: you can opt for the smooth-as-glass effect of fondant icing, or go for the more natural look of a buttercream based frosting.
Chocolate cakes can be created in a design to match any wedding theme. You will want to make sure that your cake coordinates with the rest of the affair. Because the cake has become such an important style element, brides look at them almost like another accessory, like their headpiece or bridal jewelry. In fact, it is very common for brides to choose the details of their cake based on the elements of their bridal jewelry, such as using a crystal monogram as the cake topper to tie in with the crystals in their wedding jewelry.
Fall weddings often have a rustic look, and you can very easily bring that into your wedding cake. Chocolate frosting with a rougher bark-like texture makes the perfect backdrop for tiny little fall pumpkins, gourds, and flowers. These can either be real, or created from marzipan or gum paste. The tiny little sugar fruits and flowers are truly works of art.
