Wedding cakes are an art form — an edible art form for that matter. And for many brides, the wedding cake is just as important as the dress and bouquet on their big day. A wedding cake is not something that is simply eaten and forgotten; it makes a statement with how good it looks, how great it tastes, and it reflects the bride and groom as a couple.
When chef Stephanie Izard wed craft-beer consultant Gary Valentine on Oct. 6, it was obvious to them that they had to have an outstanding cake. The couple called on the expertise of Mathew Rice, a pastry chef at Girl & the Goat, to make them a cake no one would ever forget.
One layer was Strawberry Nesquik and chocolate marble with a bacon buttercream frosting and the other layer was "Cheez-It cake": chocolate ganache with peanut butter and chocolate-covered Cheez-Its. The cake was said to be inspired by Izard’s love of the cheesy snack. We definitely love how this couple made their cake their own for their special day!
