Have you asked her if she can do a chocolate cake? I have a great recipe that I can share if you’d like, and it pairs excellently with powdered sugar instead of frosting, in fact it’s too rich a cake for every frosting I’ve tried to pair it with in the past, except an orange glaze.

Oh boy…fruit cake… yum?  Here’s what I would do…

Ask her to make ONE fruit cake. Tell her that you want it to be a top layer to your cake that you and your hubby cut at the reception. Then do the other layer(s) in flavors you actually like! If you’re not doing layers, then just have the fruit cake highlighted on its seperate stand so she feels special. You could also let her have her cake … and then do cupcakes of any flavor and variety you want!

As for icing – I HIGHLY recommend doing a white chocolate ganache since your man loves it so much. It’s just like making regular chocolate ganache, but using white chocolate chips —- just pure cream/heavy cream (I add a pad of butter) slowly heated to boiling then poured over your white chocolate chips and cooled. Then it’s just poured and spread onto your completely cooled cake. Easy peasy! And tasty! You can also make white chocolate frosting –> http://www.dianasdesserts.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/recipes.recipeListing/filter/dianas/recipeID/3533/Recipe.cfm 

There are TONS of options out there! We’re doing gelato, cheesecake and a tiered cake that’s made out of stacked donuts! We hate cake!

Good luck!
