"As for me & my house…" Scripture Groom's Cake: this is a chocolate sour cream cake with chocolate buttercream. The cake is decorated with fondant rope, fondant lettering, and a chocolate cross.
I started this post on Saturday and somehow got side-tracked. Then it was Sunday and church and a baby shower, so I just shared the quick post about the dark chocolate Snickers cake...
...then it was Monday and a member of our church passed away in the night, it was also back to our homeschool routine and laundry and you know... life with 6 kids. And before I know it, it's Tuesday night and it's been 3 days since I posted a flashy new cake. Oops.
So... as I sit here late Tuesday night... I'm feeling under-the-weather and tired and overwhelmed, I'm gonna cop-on you again and share another short cake post!
But tomorrow... I promise tomorrow... I'll share a bright, happy, new cake with lots of details!
Anywho... that sounds like this cake is inferior... it's NOT, it's just easy to talk about because of its simplicity!
"As for me & my house…" Scripture Groom's Cake
For the cross, I piped some melted chocolate onto wax paper in the shape of the cross, the stuck it in the freezer for a few minutes. Then I spread some melted white chocolate over that and smeared it around the edges. Back into the freezer for a few minutes, then I laid it on the cake (wax paper side up) and peeled it off.... wah-la!
OH, and when I got to the wedding, I added chocolate dipped strawberries all around the edges. The cake table was set up underneath a window with direct sunlight, so Icouldn't get a great picture. I love the strawberries, but I was sad that it covered up the rope border. I wish I had used a larger cake board...
This cake went along with a huge buttercream roses wedding cake... here:

One last thing. This cake was partially inspired by one of my very first cakes... my brother Jake's groom's cake. I thought I'd share it too since I don't think it's published anywhere on my site... here it is:
I did that cake way back in May 2010. It was red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and covered in chopped pecans. The cross and horseshoe on this cake are a replica of my brother's brand (he's a farrier and horseman). You can see their gray and yellow wedding cake here.
Oh well... so this post wasn't so short after all. But I must wrap it up now - I still have a fondant monkey to make tonight!!
