Oh for the love of chocolate

This beautifully, deliciously evil thing was our wedding cake, all most one year ago. Despite being an event planner, I have a confession to make…… I HATE traditional wedding cake. I’m sorry, but who cares how beautiful it is, if it tastes simply awful!? It is CAKE, people! The whole point of dessert is to be wrapped up in its wonderful deliciousness where you wonder if anything that good should be in your hands in the first place.

With that said, this beauty was yellow cake with chocolate mousse between the layer and chocolate ganache on the outside, completely my idea for our wedding cake and it was better than I ever dreamed of. My mouth waters just thinking about it. This work of art was by Lulu’s Bakery in Alpharetta, Georgia. They are known for their wonderful treats and are so easy to work with. This puppy was so fabulous that we ate our top layer after our honeymoon. Shhhhhh!!!! Since, I’m in Atlanta on business this week, I called Lulu’s to order an anniversary layer. I am picking it up on Thursday and to be honest, I’m not sure if the whole cake would make it back to South Carolina IF I had not given up sweets for Lent.

Anyway, if you are getting married, planning a party or just want dessert and you live in Atlanta head over to Lulu’s and enjoy!!!!

Oh my gosh, that looks like my idea of heaven!! We never got to eat any of our wedding cake. Boo! And I'm pretty certain my parents and sister ate the top of the cake while we were on our honeymoon. Nice.

I've been saying it every year, but, maybe this year I will actually order us an little cake for our anniversary.
