When we found out that today is National Chocolate Cake Day, we immediately went to our reserves of wedding inspiration and began daydreaming about delicious wedding cakes. After a few mouth-watering hours, we assembled these whimsical, woodsy and romantic dessert ideas for an outdoor wedding. Chocolate or not, these beauties have so many sweet touches: a homemade heart-shaped topper, smart stripes, hand-painted roses, a little celebratory banner, decorative cupcake liners… Makes us wish we could put together a giant dessert table with one of each!
When planning an outdoor wedding, your baker will be able to advise you on optimal frosting and decorating options. When deciding where your cake will be placed, think about the time of day and angle of the sun, and make sure your cake will have plenty of shade. Ask your baker to deliver your cake as close to your start time as possible so that it won’t be hanging out al fresco for too long!
