My wedding cake?

I am undecided on how to do my cake. I can do them and make them look professional (I have a pro cake maker in my family but they live 10 hrs away and wont be at teh wedding) but I dont know what I should do!!! The one thing I really like is when the cake looks like chocolate is dripping from the sides. like somebody poured chocolate on top and its drippy looking. I might try to do that with chocolate fondant by cutting it out in the shape of drips. what do you think?

  • Can you get the look that you want with a regular buttercream chocolate frosting? Use a knife to swoop the frosting down the sides?

  • Why not just pay someone to make the cake you want?

  • Have you thought of using poured fondant or warming buttercream frosting so it is more fluid? I'm not a cake artist but I've seen pictures of it

  • I figured it out!! I asked the same question to a forum on theknot.com and they said is was chocolate ganache. I was looking at more cakes though and came across a giant cupcake. I think thats so cool!

  • Chocolate Ganache is pretty easy to make if you follow the recipe EXACTLY. I like your idea of the fondant over the top though because fondant makes a very elegant wedding cake. Are you going to make it multiple layers?
    Another idea is to do multiple cheesecakes, cupcakes, etc. Or minitaure cakes for each person if you are having a small wedding.
