chocolate garden cake

When we decided to have family pictures taken I just knew that a cake had to be a part of it. Inspired by this gorgeous cake, I decided to see if making a garden on top of a cake was really that easy – it is!

I topped a chocolate cake with a few eatable leaves from the garden and piled on the blueberries, blackberries and cherries. It turned out so pretty and the fruit + chocolate mixture was devine!

PS. My favorite chocolate cake recipe and another easy way to top a cake.
