Traditionally, wedding cakes were made to bring good luck to all guests and the couple. Modernly however, they are more of a centerpiece to the wedding and it is definitely a task on deciding on the cake. But if you really, really like chocolate? You like it so much that you want a luxurious, decadent, breathtaking chocolate cake for your wedding? Then this is for you. We have put together a list of 10 best chocolate wedding cakes and design ideas below. I hope will inspire you to create your dream cake.
Chocolate Cakes For Christmas Wedding
Vintage Style Cake
For a real vintage look, you can opt for a chocolate cake with different finishes for each tier. It will instantly give your chocolate wedding cake a vintage chic, “brocante” feel. For an amazing vintage style wedding cake, you could take your inspiration from vintage fashion and prints from a specific era like Revival years or the 1920’s with an Art Deco theme. Chocolate is so versatile you can “print” it into really thin sheets with incredible patterns. I have selected a few below to get your imagination going hopefully.
Adorned Naked Cake
Don’t be afraid to dress up your chocolate naked cake. This one, which is lightly coated with peanut butter frosting, is topped with an assortment of bold flowers, like just-blooming peonies, roses, and lupine.
Berry Chocolate Cake
This chocolate ganache icing transforms a strawberry and vanilla confection into something any cocoa-lover would adore. Beautifully decorated with different berries and kiwis, this chocolate cake is definitely a great choice for the ones who love a little fruity flavor. Also strawberries and chocolate is a combination which will leave your guests mesmerized.
Winter Wonderland Cake
If you were wondering how to make a chocolate cake winter-ready, look no further than this loaded dessert, complete wintry berries and seasonal poinsettias. This cake looks beautiful with all the colorful berries and edible flowers on it.
True Chocolate Cake
Frosted to perfection, this chocolate cake looks even better thanks to theelegantly decorated chocolate branches.The white floral clustered adds a little extra flair.The outer layer finished with dark chocolate, and the surprise element of using milk chocolate for the inner layers would leave your guests with the best taste as it will not be too sugary and give the true sense of chocolate.
Abstract Chocolate Shards Cake
A more modern approach to chocolate cakes, it’s a great way to design a real show stopper cake. You can have plain shards, different chocolate shards (including caramel “Dulcey” chocolate which gives that most wonderful light tan color and tastes nothing short of heavenly in my view). You could also mix plain and printed shards to add a touch of color or a pattern that links back to your overall wedding theme. Chocolate shards also lend themselves really well to designing a tall, tower like, Helter Sketler type of wedding cake.
Cocoa Themed Cake
Copy this couple and turn your dessert table into a cocoa extravaganza. A dark chocolate wedding cake, dressed up with white rosy blooms, this one is perfect for the dark chocolate lovers. Not everyone is a fan of regular milk chocolate cakes and hence this cocoa themed cake with dark chocolate ganache will blow your taste buds for sure.
Outdoor Chocolate Wedding Cake
For a more informal look, if you love chocolate, then a wavy chocolate ganache wedding cake might be the right one for you. From regular romantic waves on a white chocolate ganache, decorated with colorful berries to a milk or dark chocolate ganache lightly textured in a pallet knife stroke style, those cakes immediately state that you are a serious chocolate lover. For a more outdoor look you can top it up with sprinkled sugar powder and berries on the top!
Smooth Ganache Sharp Edges Chocolate Wedding Cake
For a classic, Haute Couture feel chocolate wedding cake look, how about tiers finished in chocolate ganache with a really smooth and straight edge? The understated look gives a classic and chic feel. You can add a little metallic dust, a stripe, or just a few sugar paste or chocolate flowers with pearl centers to finish it off in an effortlessly chic way. Or even just a giant and crafted chocolate flower at the top….With this design, I really think less is more when it comes to dressing it up. Think Chanel rather than Dolce & Gabbana!
Designed Chocolate Wedding Cake
Elegant and classic – plus don’t forget that, as all of the outside of your cake tiers are finished in beautiful chocolate designs, you can have pretty much any recipe for your tiers. They don’t have to match or even in terms of color.Sober, elegant, refined, padded, truce of qualifiers, this wedding cake is sublime. One would be almost afraid to chew for fear of damaging it. Actually I think it’s rather cool when you cut the different tiers, to expose different color sponges and fillings for each tier. For me it adds to the excitement and anticipation of eating a piece of your wedding cake.
Of course, choosing a wedding cake—and a cake flavor—is personal. If you’re a chocolate fanatic, but your bride or groom isn’t, consider going half and half. Take after one such couple, who offered up black-and-white cookies arranged in a cake “tower” to meet in the middle. If you love the flavor, but want to put your own spin on things, take notes from another duo, who opted for a two-tier confection frosted in red velvet (chocolate’s little sister!). However you decide to incorporate cocoa on your big day, one thing is certain: Your guests will thank you for it.
