These scrumptious chocolate wedding cakes are designed and created in Bristol by boutique cake maker Chocolate Delores. Every one of these sumptuous delights is handmade to order, using the best quality organic, Fairtrade and local ingredients. They’re fun, funky, very luxurious and extremely delicious.
The company’s owned by Lizzie, who began making cakes at the age of ten for her family and later became the chief designer and chocolatier at one of Britain’s leading Organic Chocolate Cake companies. She’s now launched this wonderful designer cake business and is creating her own delicious, visually stunning chocolate cakes for Weddings, Birthdays and as she says, 'Vintage Tea Parties'!
The main ingredient of these gorgeous cakes is a delicious 72% dark chocolate. Also in the mix are Fairtrade sugars rich in molasses, organic butter and milk, free-range organic eggs and flours. Once baked and cooled, Lizzie soaks the cakes overnight in Port. They’re then layered with Madagascan vanilla buttercream and her own homemade plum jam. After that, the fun really starts and using white, dark or milk chocolate, Lizzie sets to work designing the cake of your most delicious dreams. If this is whetting your appetite, don’t worry, as on the day of the Fair, you’ll have a chance to have a little taste yourself.
Chocolate Delores have created many fabulous designs for weddings, so I recommend you take a look at their mouth-watering website, Facebook page or follow Lizzie on Twitter for more pictures of individual cakes. Lizzie’s happy to combine styles and to work with you on any ideas you may have and being based in Bristol, she can deliver locally and beyond. You’ll also find a section on her site about her chocolate stiletto shoes.
Lizzie makes these deliciously glamorous shoes to order and we recommend devouring them along with a bottle of Champagne; a perfect way to celebrate any occasion and a wonderful idea for unique Bridesmaid’s favours.
