5 No BS Reasons Why Wedding Cakes by Alex Franco are the Best


5 No BS Reasons Why Wedding Cakes by Alex Franco are the Best
 
When was the last time you attended a wedding that you still remember the wedding cake?  If that cake was just a throw in of the caterer chances are that cake didn’t even make the faintest impression on you. But get this, in our case it’s been 6 years now and those who attended our wedding still remembers what it looked like, how it almost stole the spotlight from us (wink) and how it tasted so good. Imagine a cake was able to do that! Behind that killer of a cake is the husband and wife team of Alex and Rosan Franco. Flashback 2005, my then fiancee Rachel and I were on to our final stretch in our December wedding preparation. I was doing consulting work and meeting wedding vendors was a really a chore for me. So when the subject of cake was brought up, I immediately blurted out that maybe our caterer can provide one. Oh gee golly wow! That comment was a big mistake. I got a good lecture from my fiancee that in a wedding, the cake is the crown jewel of a couple’s wedding feast. The wedding cake, she added, is not just a dessert, but a gesture of thanks from a couple in a sweet (and classy, wink) way. With that, my next query was, where we can find this special cake. My future wife was ready with her answer, Alex Franco! 

The  Creator - The Artist: Up Close
When I got to talk to Alex, with his pad with a printed diagram of a 5 tiered wedding cake, I thought to myself that this guy is not just a pastry chef. He’s an Artist! So when Rachel and I started explaining what we want for our big day and how we’d like to see it, he began sketching on his pad what we have in mind. In just a matter of minutes, like a fashion designer working on fabrics of a wedding gown, he presented to us for the first time our wedding cake. Impressive! That got us really excited. But what made us “manically” excited was that before we parted ways in our meeting, he handed us a cold box. He said it’s something for us to enjoy. Oh wow!  We headed to our favorite coffee shop, ordered coffee, and then unwrapped the sweet surprise. It’s the real deal! We just took home an Alex Franco cake! 

So let me go through the list. Here are the 5 Reasons Why Wedding Cakes my Alex Franco are the Best.

1. The entire cake is edible and that includes all the trimmings around it. We ordered a 5 tier wedding cake and all the layers were served to our guests with some having seconds. I don’t know about you but, we never planned in serving icing covered stryrofoam cakes to anyone.


2. Fondant cake is so over-rated and honestly, it doesn’t taste good at all. Alex Franco’s cake is a heavenly layer of chocolate cake and prune walnut or walnut caramel infused with mango and chocolate mousse fillings. Best of ladies and gentlemen, it’s served cold!
  

3. The cake is just addicting, period. Our wedding day maybe over, but we still called Alex and Rosan Franco for other occasions. I guess once you’ve tasted his creation, there will always be that longing for another slice… and then another…  


4. The cake is a guaranteed star of your wedding reception. Unless you don’t mind sharing the spotlight with a layered creation, your Alex Franco will effortlessly take center stage. If I remembered it right, our cake had its own photo session with our guests =). 


5. Lastly, Alex and Rosan listen to you. They  collaborate with you and build on how you want your cake to look like. Too put it simply, they let you be co-creator of your very own wedding cake.



Six years, one wedding and numerous special occasions after our December reception, I’m still under the spell of Alex and Rosan Franco. I will always have that longing for a slice of their finest cake creations. 

Happy Birthday Rosan!
