Tasty and pretty wedding cake.
Am looking for a wedding cake that will actually be served for dessert and thus must truly be tasty and not just a showpiece. That said, I would also like it to look nice (that's secondary though).
My fiance and I are not big fans of airy/whipped-creamy desserts (for example, unlike many people, we're not big fans of Dufflet's). Our favourite type of cake is a dense, moist, fudgy chocolate cake. We're thinking of having both chocolate and lemon (or something similar) options so that guests have a choice.
Based on these comments, does anyone have any suggestions?
More specifically, has anyone eaten/seen wedding cakes made by Dessert Trends, She Takes the Cake, and/or the Wedding Cake Shoppe?
There are a few places where you can order wedding cupcakes...they are tiers of cupcakes that are beautiful and yummy. There is also a plus side to having the ability to do chocolate, lemon and any other flavour. I have seen a few of these and they are really beautiful. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you off hand who made them but if you are interested I will make some calls to find out. I do remember that one of the places even donates some of the profit to charity....
The one that does weddings is Eini & Co. - http://www.eini.ca/
Their cupcakes are divine and beautiful as well! They are also just lovely people to deal with. You get the choice of donating to three funds, Sick Kids, an AIDS foundation and the Cancer Society. Please note though that their website shows that they are closed until July 23rd due to kitchen renovations.
I also recommend dessert trends. They have delicious cakes, although I have not tried any chocolate cake. And they are great artists!! Stunning cakes!!
We used Shirley's Sweet Creations for our wedding and we got a lot of compliments on how yummy our cake was (we served it as dessert). Shirley will meet you at your house for a tasting (she brings you little pieces of cake to try) with different icing. She's really reasonable too, and our wedding cake was gorgeous!
