Chocolate groom's cake
Such fun to make this one! I used a mixture of the Hershey's Special Dark and regular cocoa to get a lighter look, and it turned out to be kind of marbled. It looked like a chocolate box. Many guests came close to setting their drinks on it! The picture added a really personal touch. I had envisioned using more stick-like chocolate shavings, but the wind was so strong that they all blew off when I tried them, so I ended up pushing the smaller shaving down into the cake a bit. It worked out great!
