In honor of my sister coming home from Paris today after studying pastries for the past year, today’s post is all about cake! As yummy as simple chocolate and vanilla can be, it’s fun to imagine unique flavor combinations for your wedding cake, and as I was going through my files and Pinterest “Sweets” board, I realized that many of my favorite layer cakes came from the same place: Sweetapolita. So I decided to highlight some of the yummiest recipes from her collection… (click the images for the original recipe link).

Salted Caramel + Chocolate Fudge Cake

Have you decided on something for your wedding cake yet? What are your favorite cake flavors? My wedding cake was alternating tiers of Lemon Sponge Cake with Lemon Curd and Chocolate “Mahogany” Cake with Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Cream – I’m drooling just thinking about it…
