When my friend told me that she was getting married, she said that the most important thing to her, on a tight budget, was to have a really nice wedding cake to appease her chocolate fetish. I thought, well, how hard can that be and so volunteered to do her cake - though the most I'd ever done before was a real German Chocolate Cake from scratch or my kids box cake with box icing. Decided upon a chocolate butter cake with chocolate buttercream between the layers and for the crumb coat and then did a to die for chocolate ganache for the frosting. Decorated with orange ribbon and fresh purple pansies. Needless to say, the bride was so astounded and I was in shock that I was able to pull it off. My next volunteer wedding cake is scheduled for September 7.
