Wedding Cakes Variety and Outstanding Flavors
Wedding and other layer cakes
Generally, unless requested otherwise, we make cake layers of genoise, a French sponge cake, vanilla or chocolate, braced with a liquor flavored syrup and frosted (See below for a list). We also will make pound cakes of various flavors if you desire. All cakes can be made without any liquor upon request.
Our frostings use only butter as their shortening. We use no preservatives, chemicals, or hydrogenated fats. Some fillings use cream, egg, gelatin, etc. We will be happy to provide ingredient lists whenever necessary.
We also make cakes that have no buttercream or frosting what so ever. Generally, we use mousse fillings, sponge cake top and bottom, with a fruit juice and gelatin coating on the very top to seal in the moisture. We have made many fanciful tops on these types of cakes.
Another choice is that your cake be wrapped in chocolate instead of frosting. With a mousse filling of contrasting chocolate, it makes a spectacular cake.
Types or flavors of cake fillings to choose from can be divided into categories of fruit, nut, chocolate, coffee & spice, etc. But many of these categories can be combined, for example, we could make a milk chocolate filling, a milk chocolate and coffee with Kahlua filling, or a milk chocolate hazelnut praline filling with Frangelico. So the combinations are endless. Below we have suggested a list in categories and some of our favorite combinations, but feel free to suggest what sounds good to you.
