Food on Friday: Amber's Wedding Cake

Remember Amber's bracelet that I made for her wedding last weekend? Well there's something else I have to tell you about. I had nothing to do with it, but it was just too amazing to not post about.

Her wedding cake.

There's something you should know about Amber. She loves Nutella. She has eaten it by the jar on her bad days (who am I kidding--I have too).

With that in mind, our friend Autumn offered to make her wedding cake. By the way, Autumn works at a local chocolate shop called Eclipse Chocolat as one of the chocolatiers/bakers/chefs. Eclipse is my all-time favorite place to buy dessert, or chocolate, or candy, or pure happiness. There are no words to adequately express what an Eclipse experience is like. It's mind blowing. Everything they concoct is unexpected, and yet, the flavors are so rich and always compliment each other perfectly.

So for Autumn to make this cake, you can imagine that it wasn't just any ol' cake. Not only was it delicious beyond compare, but it was absolutely stunning too.


The cake was made with dark chocolate, white chocolate sea shells, Nutella, and ground hazelnuts.
(Holy Hannah. Yes, yes I did just say all of that in one sentence.) 



It was richer than Bill Gates and tasted better than Thanksgiving dinner. Autumn is a food genius and dessert perfectionist.




I'm not sure if there is a recipe for this or not. She kind of made it up as she went, I think.

But what I wouldn't give to have another divine piece!


Also, look at how adorable Graham was at the wedding. 


He's seriously such a cute baby. I'm one lucky momma.

  1. I will give you an amen to all of the above. That cake was incredible in every way. Sure, it was rich, but not in a cloying, get-me-a-glass-of-milk-quick! kind of way.

    And Graham--a.dor.a.ble! I love that little dude.
