Wedding Interview - Choccywoccydoodah

Bespoke handmade chocolate cakes and wedding favors!

I've been a BIG fan of the chocolate shop Choccywoccydoodah for years now after having some of their gorgeous chocolates at my own wedding! I was very lucky when they agreed to answer some of my questions so here's a little insight into the amazing, inventive world of Choccywoccydoodah.
Here's some of my favorite cakes to start with:

All You Need is Love Cake - An incredible and elaborate cake. Enrobed in white Belgian chocolate coating and featuring the truest message ever said 'All you need is love'. All in chocolate. Of course. Viva Las Vegas Love Chapel Cake - A towering three tier cake which will provide up to 180 portions. This glitzy cake is enrobed in dark Belgian chocolate coating, detailed with the Las Vegas Love Chapel, casino chips, playing cards, dice, and finished with 'neon lights'. Viva Las Vegas!

Three Tier Vortex Cake - A towering three tier cake which will provide up to 180 portions. Available in white, dark or a mixture of both, Belgian chocolate coatings.Not for the fainthearted.
Gatekeeper Cake - A towering three tier cake which provides up to 180 portions. This feminine cake is enrobed in white Belgian chocolate coating and detailed with vintage pink roses, peonies, lisianthus, aquilegia and gatekeeper butterfly.My Best Friend Cake - A joyful two tier cake which will provide 120 portions, enrobed in white Belgian chocolate coating with a dark chocolate runover. Finished with two irresistable, solid chocolate, West Highland terrier puppies and pink chocolate hearts.

Chocolate Westie Puppy favor - This cute westie puppy is made from solid white chocolate and is looking for a good home. Can you help?

Your wedding cakes are so beautiful and unique, what got you into making them?
The cakes were first created as birthday cakes for the small chocolate shop, then somebody asked if Christine (the boss and genius behind it all) could make a wedding cake, which she did and from that the whole cake side of the business grew.
Love Love Love Cake - An distinctive, petite three tier cake which provides 80 -100 coffee sized portions. Detailed with glittery pink roses and 'Love Love Love' in pink and black chocolate.

Where do you get your inspiration for your amazing cakes?
Christine takes influence from all around, from her favourite artists like Dali and her favourite film directors like Tim Burton.

It looks like you could make anything! What's the favorite you've made?
We put a lot of love into everything we make, the huge show stopping window displays are always spectacular.

When do you think a couple should be ordering a cake? ie. when they've booked a venue?
It is good for the couple to have an idea of numbers, themes, flowers and colours, it helps when designing something unique for them.
Choccywoccydoodah specialise in designing and creating extraordinary, decadent, bespoke cakes and sculptures. If you are celebrating any special occasion, we would love to design something unique especially for you.

How long does the process take from design to delivery?
Some couples order years in advance while some leave it right to the last minute, which isn’t recommended as we do get fully booked during the busy months.

Do most cakes get delivered on the day?
We never deliver a wedding cake on the day of a wedding, far too much risk, we like the cake to be safely at the venue a day or so before the event.

Whats the most popular one at the moment?
Our iconic towering rococco tier cake, all white chocolate with white chocolate roses is a perennial classic.
Towering Rococco Tiers - iconic classic, these three towering tiers will provide up to 180 portions of cake. Enrobed in white Belgian chocolate coating and detailed with hand made white chocolate roses.

You also make chocolate wedding favors, whats your favorite?
Our solid chocolate lovebirds with glittery red hearts are beautiful.
White Chocolate Love Bird Favors

What would be your dream cake to make?
A cake for Vivienne Westwood in the most rock n roll of all styles.
