Let me qualify that. Chocolate cake is delicious. Seriously—is there really any other kind of cake?
I have never been a fan of white cake. I can handle a tasty carrot cake slathered in cream cheese frosting, or a decadent red velvet cake, but my tastes are on the darker side.
I always wanted a chocolate wedding cake. And not just chocolate cake covered in white frosting—I wanted it all chocolate. Because why ruin a perfectly good cake with boring white frosting?
I found a picture of the cake I wanted in a magazine. My mother and sister recreated it for me. Now, these ladies were no cake-making ameteurs, but this was their first wedding cake. It turned out beautifully.
The sugar from the frosting/cake caused the strawberries to seep. Their juices penetrated into the cake and near the end of the evening, the cake began collapsing on itself.
But the bigger tragedy?
