    Beyond Vanilla and Buttercream Think Sweet Potato!

    Most brides, myself included, select a safe choice when selecting their wedding cakes - vanilla cake with buttercream icing.  With bakers offering many more flavors for wedding cakes coupled with the cupcake craze you are no longer limited to such a simple cake.  Last year I discovered Delectable Cakery, home of the Washingtonian Sweet Potato Cake.  They had just opened in Mt. Ranier, MD a quaint town with a booming arts district on the border of DC. I read about the cake in the Washington Post while reading an article about The Brookland Cafe (another favorite in my neighborhood!) and had to try for myself.  To say I was in heaven was an understatement!  They make a chocolate sweet potato marble cake with chocolate icing that is divine although the combination at first glance doesn't seem appealing it is truly one of the best cakes I have tasted.  The great thing about Delectable is they offer their goodies in cupcakes and wedding cakes!  So in planning your wedding or special event think beyond vanilla and buttercream and consider Sweet Potato!
