Our Simply Elegant Wedding Cake

The Suprise Was Inside

Simply Elegant! Simply Delicious!

My husband and I were going for the simple, elegant, and non-traditional wedding theme. We were married on a small family owned farm and had our reception in the barn. Good food and lots of fun was our main goal for a perfect wedding day.

The cake was the center of attention, displayed high up on the stage. It was exactly what I wanted. A simple, yet elegant cake. It had beautiful fresh flowers gently placed on white fondant, which fit perfectly into the natural surroundings of the farm. The best part of this elegant cake was the non-traditional surprise inside!!! That’s right, Guinness Beer!!! It was a chocolate cake made with Guinness Stout. It was amazing in every way.

Cakes to go! We had individual cake boxes that were displayed on a table at the end of the night. Each neatly wrapped cake box had a single piece of cake in it. The guests loved this idea, especially for those that were too busy dancing and missed dessert.

One year later my husband and I had the pleasure of enjoying our elegant wedding cake all over again. We couldn’t believe how fresh it tasted after being in the freezer for one year. I definitely recommend using fondant if you are planning to freeze your cake.

Thank you for our perfect wedding cake Lorelie!

Love, Melissa
