Chinese Dragon Box Cake , Florence, ItalyChinese Dragon Box Cake InitialChinese Dragon Box Cake Detail

Share this cake on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, between now and  June.

If this cake gets shared at least 100 times, Tuscan wedding cake designer L’Arte Della Torta di Melanie Secciani, will create this Chinese Dragon Box Grooms Cake as a surprise for a groom who loves cake. That’s the short story.

Here’s the why:

Today I got to start designing the kind of wedding cake I really love to do. Personal.

The bride and groom are having a destination wedding in Tuscany. They are combining organic Tuscan details, and Chinese cultural elements into the wedding. The groom suggested we incorporate a special double happiness theme into the wedding cake based around the gift they’re giving their guests. We have a 3 months before you’ll get to see that cake. But if you’re interested in following the design process you can peek at the Pinterest board I created tonight to see how a wedding cake goes from just an idea…to spectacular.

During the meeting, what struck me was how excited they BOTH were about the cake. As a cake designer, I still have the bias that it’s the brides who really want the cake. But experience has taught me, that’s not true. Grooms are all about the cake!

In fact you might be a groom sneaking a little peek at this blog and thinking YES!

Which made me think it was high time for a cake, for just the boys out there, to get some attention. Forget the pretty frilly girls cakes. Today I’m going to do two things.

First I’m going to put the Chinese  Dragon Box on todays post, since it is most definitely a manly cake – and Chinese so goes with this theme.

And then not knowing much about the bloggy works, I will take a guess and say 100 people is a reasonable number.

So if this cake gets shared at least 100 times between now and when this couple gets married in June, I will create this dragon Box cake as a surprise to him.

Brides usually gets the most say in the wedding cake, but todays grooms are so excited about their cakes.  Let’s surprise the groom at this Tuscan destination wedding, with a cake just for him.

Keep in mind I’m literally writing this as I go, and haven’t figured out this whole blogging thing. If anyone is even listening.

But if you think this groom, who was a genuinely nice guy,  and really excited about cake (he wanted the chocolate fudge cake with salted caramel and chocolate mousse – but let his very sweet bride have a different flavor) should get a grooms cake,  let me know.

PS. Cakewrecks is my absolute Favorite cake blog – and I’ve always had a secret fantasy about being featured as a Sunday Sweet. If this cake goes on there before the wedding it’s an Automatic win for the groom.

Make comments, share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest and together we’ll get him his chocolate with salted caramel and chocolate mousse cake.
