Opera Cake

Your guests will sing the praises of your Opera wedding cake. Originating from France, Opera cake consists of layers of sponge almond cake soaked in coffee syrup filled with strata of coffee buttercream, chocolate ganache and chocolate glaze.

Lemon Lavender

Delight in the aromatic flavors of your lemon lavender wedding cake. Tasteful and fragrant, lemon lavender wedding cakes use culinary grade edible lavender and not the type of lavender found in potpourri sachets.

Peanut Butter, Banana and Bacon

Blackberry sour cream makes a great option for couples who desire a “naked” wedding cake, a type of cake with no icing, glazes or frosting. The rich succulent flavors of blackberries are a match in heaven with the dense texture achieved by the addition of sour cream to the pound cake batter.
