So glad you liked it.  I’m actually going to serve that combination as one option for an upcoming wedding cake consultation.

Patricia, you said you are planning on offering the chocolate fudge as a wedding cake option, does that mean it is sturdy enough to be used in a wedding cake? I am just wondering because I have made the AACBC a few times now, feeling like that was my only option for a wedding cake because butter cakes supposedly have the best structure, and it has always tasted great but has been very very crumbly (like very fine crumbs that go everywhere when the cake is cut, but its not dry). Anyway, I know its maybe not the biggest deal if it tastes good but I was hoping for a cake that didn’t make such a mess all over the plates as its served. Let me know what you think. smile Thanks!

Yes, the chocolate fudge cake is messier than the chocolate butter cake.  As far as structure is concerned, it as long as your internal support system is sound, you shouldn’t have to worry about using the fudge cake in a wedding cake.  If crumbs are a major factor, pick the All American Chocolate Butter Cake.

awesome! I am glad to see the color of bills buttercream. it is darker than expected!

I wonder if some of the “black cocoa” from King Arthur’s Flour would make it even darker?
