My cosy relationship with cake isn’t unusual and I’m confident my colleagues here at Cosmo Bride would all agree that life without spongy, fluffy sweet delights wouldn’t be worth living. I carried out a little survey earlier in the week to suss out the girls’ all-time favourite cakes with some surprising results. The number-one flavour, of course, was chocolate, but there were a few rogues that crept in and it seems the Cosmo Bride team have superior palates when it comes to their baked goods.
This got me thinking about wedding cakes and the popular choice of chocolate mud as a filling. Sure, most guests are going to love chocolate so it’s a safe option, but I’d be rather tempted to break the mould and come up with tier-upon-tier of all my dream flavours. Here’s how the fantasy Cosmo Bride cake would take form …
Tier one: Banana cake with passionfruit icing
Tier two: Black Forest gâteau
Tier three: Red velvet cake and cream cheese icing
Tier four: Jam doughnuts
Tier five: Hazelnut torte
Tier six: Gelati cake in heaps of different flavours
Tier seven: Cinnamon tea cake (must be enjoyed with a cup of tea)
Tier eight: Crème brûlée cake (if this hasn’t been invented already, someone needs to!)
Tier nine: Chocolate mousse cake
Tier ten: Banoffee pie
Tier eleven: Devil’s food cake
Tier twelve: The pièce de résistance – pavlova!

Guess who!? Cosmo cover girl @Cheyennet was cleverly captured by international coffee artist Michael Breach aka @baristart at Nescafe’s #dolcegustoart event this month! He whipped up a cappuccino then sketched her gorgeous face in the foam using only a toothpick! #awesome #talent #art #cosmoaustralia
