    @Icicle:

    I LOVE the idea of a hot cocoa bar in the dead of winter! Are you thinking like actual chocolate or instant?

    I LOVE the hot cocoa bar idea!! You’ll have cheesecake and eclairs for people that want a more traditional dessert, but I think that sounds amazing!

    Can you do your cake cutting with the cheesecake? You could put your cake topper on there?

    I love the hot cocoa bar!

    You can get really creative with cocoa! Candy canes, biscotti, pirouette cookies, toasted coconut marshmallows, add-your-own flavoring…

    Can I come?

    I am biased because I am doing a Cocoa and Cider bar. 🙂 I actually started a post a while ago and got some GREAT suggestions about toppings. The only thing I might say is are you having other drink options? I have several lactose intolerant/chocolate allergies so that is why the cider option. 

    Here is that post with some topping suggestions:

    I think if you have some sort of “cake” with a topper on it no one will miss a traditional wedding cake! I think the cocoa is an awesome idea and I wish I had some right now.

    I think hot cocoa is a great idea! Usually I’m way full at cake time anyway (although… I still eat it. 😉 ).

    If you can’t have both, go for the cocoa bar. No one will miss the cake if you decide to skip it to serve another dessert. Almost everyone loves cheesecake so you can’t go wrong there.
