Cake! and some advice

I figured I would take the time to talk about some of my wedding details. Things that brides stress over and fret over and lastly get a million opinions on.  For me one of those things were our cake.  I loved our wedding cake I could have eaten a whole layer. It was a delcious, chocolate cake with chocolate chips, chocolate ganache and fresh strawberries covered in buttercream.  Now you may read this and say UGH what a chocolate wedding cake or you may drool. (I hope you drool it was really that good.) Back to topic and not dreaming of cake.   I was told all over the place that a chocolate wedding cake wasn't proper, that it had to be a white cake.  Stop the presses, ?. (Who came up with that?) I can name 10 people who blatently told me I had  to have a white cake. Well ,we didn't we got our favorite. We loved it. It was just what we wanted and I think our guests liked it too.  My advice to all of you on the fence brides. Get a cake that makes you want to drool, that you truly love.  It will make that first bite together as a couple even sweeter. :)
PS thanks Mom for the flutes. We will always toast to our good moments with them. :)

It was the best wedding cake I have EVER eaten... Chocolate cake is really the only cake... couple that with ganache, strawberries and buttercream...

White cake?! BAH ... on to the grooms cake... Eva and Erics cake was perfect... why seperate the two... give the bride a dry ole white cake and the groom gets a fun yum cake... nooooooo Eva and Eric combined the beauty of the wedding cake with the YUMMMM of the grooms cake... BRAVA...BRAVO... a perfect cake for a perfect couple...

The cake was great! Moist, fluffy, full of flavor and best of all, chocolate with fresh strawberries. I can usually maintain some dignity when it comes to eating too much cake but I had no willpower whatsoever in regards to this cake. It was worth the extra pounds (yes, plural, pounds!). Great, now I have a taste for chocolate cake.
