While watching the movie, Chocolat, this weekend, I was inspired to imagine a wedding centered around chocolate.

Invitation and table at the wedding:

A rustic setting with warm chocolate touches. The invitation is reminiscent of a chocolate foil wrapper…..

Bridesmaids would wear a chocolate satin sleeveless dress. The groomsmen wear a little whimsy on their lapels with a candy inspired boutonnière.

Delicate and simple, the cake is white chocolate inside and out. Chocolate cigarette curls decorate the outside while white chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream fill the inside.  A simple yet sophisticated cake.

Homemade chocolates for the wedding guests to take home as favors……

Secret Garden

17 May

Pinks and peonies. Peonies and pinks – soft, delicate, and so romantic. This week I was inspired by my green thumb. My husband and I started our own little secret garden (well, not so secret…it is right outside our front door). However, Spring seems to have nipped me in the ‘sweetcakes’ this weekend. I found myself falling in love with some beautiful peonies, so, I felt the need to make a secret garden inspired wedding cake….
