This isn’t a recipe, sorry, but I just had to share my experience with a delicious wedding cake: my wedding cake! A good, rich cake was seriously the only thing I really really wanted for my wedding day. I wasn’t bridezilla about anything else, swear. My new Hub (he doesn’t want me calling him “hubby” anymore, ha) and I decided on alternating layers of vanilla cake with chocolate mousse, and chocolate cake with vanilla mousse with vanilla buttercream icing. There are few things I hate more in life than fondant, so the icing choice was a no brainer. Ok, so there are more than a few things I hate more than fondant, like mealy peaches, people who drive under the speed limit, and weak handshakes, but I digress. The icing was perfect–super rich with the right touch of salt to complement the sweet cake. Sigh…
The cake is from Giordano’s Pastries in Harrisburg, PA, a nice family bakery that makes killer cannoli among other things. Just looking at their pastry menu again makes me realize that there are a ton of things I still want to try. Like tiramisu cake, hello!
Because I loved the cake so much, I had to share two photos that we just received from our wedding collection. Adorable married couple Heidi and Kevin from Sweet Pea Photography were there to capture our day, and they took these great shots of our NOM-worthy cake. I’m actually looking forward to our one year anniversary when we pull the freezer-burned hunk of cake out from my parents’ freezer to eat. What a weird tradition, right? But I bet the cake will still taste just as good.
Sigh…can we have another wedding again, please?
