Well, chocolate frosting is not usually a bride’s first choice, but if you ask us, it does look both delicious and stylish at the same time. A lovely swirled design is the perfect starting point if you are going in for a chocolate frosting cupcake wedding cake. To make it look more chic and lovely, you can consider elevating it with a small offset white rose with dragees pops against the chocolate frosting. If you feel like your cupcake frosting is rich, deep chocolate, then consider adding a rose in a bright color to make the cupcake pop.
