    i’d get the cake you like (chocolate) and not worry about the dress. unless you’re feeding each other with your hands and smooshing it in your faces, it shouldn’t get on your dress.

    It’s not that hard ot not get cake al over your dress! When your husband feeds it to you, just lean over and make sure he knows not to shove a huge ole chunk in your mouth, just a little nibble bite.

    Is she worried you’ll spill your own wine glass too?! You’ll be fine, get the chocolate cake! Don’t stress. Worst case scenario: Photoshop is your friend. And club soda! they’ll get that right out.

    I had chocolate cake and lived to tell the tale! I ate my cake off a plate and did not get anything spilled on my dress. My vote was for chocolate. Yum!

    We’ve got a chocolate cake planned- yellow cake, with chocolate fudge frosting, like on the Duncan Hines Box. I’m a total cake-aholic, and wouldn never sacrifice taste. You’ll be FINE!

    My Fiance and I belive desert is just not desert without chocolate.  I read in Mindy Weiss’s book not to use chocolate cake during the cake cutting because you can get that dark stain on your teeth- not good for photos.  What she recommends is having different layers with the bottom one you cut into white or yellow cake.

    My cake is going to be a fake cake for show during the reception. A small part of the bottom tier will be real cake for us to cut into.  In the kitchen they will have the real cake in sheets to be cut up and served. That way no one is waiting a long time for their slice.  It also helps having a fake cake when you have warm weather involved
