Chocolate Panel Grooms Cake

A few weeks ago I did this little groom's cake for a couple celebrating with an autumnal wedding theme.  Why is it that fall and winter weddings get their own "theme", but no spring or summer themed weddings? 

For the chocolate panels, I melted chocolate onto sheet pans and cut the panels just as they were firming up.  You have to catch it at just the right time.  Too soon and the chocolate's still runny, too late and it's hard as a rock.

I garnished the cake with some gumpaste leaves and some real black and red grapes.  A smattering of rose petal leaves completed the look.

As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great week!


  1. Very nice! Like the idea of using sheet pans instead of acetate.

  2. Great cake Jen, what a great idea working with the chocolate panels.

  3. What a gorgeous cake! I love those chocolate panels!

  4. So smooth! What a beautiful cake! It looks chocolatey and delicious.


Thanks for visiting the blog! I look forward to reading your comments!
