So I am going to make my own wedding cake for my September wedding. Just a tiny one - just for me and my fiance - for many reasons, one being my own stress level, and the other main one being that's the only way I can get away with bringing homemade food without a caterer's license. Now new hubby and I get our own cake that I can make for future anniversaries (and a fresh one, instead of out of the freezer!).
So ideas, please. The best chocolate cake you've ever had. (Chocolate is the only opinion fiance has until we do taste tests.) I got the idea for a 6 inch cake from Bon Appetit's February 2010 article: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/201...
and the icing is the best thing I've ever tasted. Seriously. I could bathe in it. The cake was good, but very crumbly and didn't rise well, which led to a little bit of cake meltdown when I layered them.
Please tell me about chocolate cakes memories, and about how to convert a cake recipe to a 6 inch cake recipe. Thank you!
