I am practicing making my brother's wedding cake (for January3). It is the first wedding cake that I will make. I am incredibly nervous. I was wondering if anyone has any great recipes for a chocolate and white cake. Also, wondering if you have any good fillings to go with them. I am thinking i will do a Chocolate Hazlenut Mousse filling in one of them, and i am not sure of the other one. I have been trying a lot of different recipes, and my husband is getting sick of me wasting money on the ones that just don't seem right. I am covering the cake with chocolate fondant, if this helps.
THank you in advance for all your help.

Will you be able to refrigerate the assembled cake, or do you only want fillings that don't require refrigeration.

I would recommend the hershey's recipe for the chocolate cake (it's in the back of the hershey's can of cocoa) and the white almond sour cream cake on cake central...
You can't go wrong with the flavor...

I am in South Dakota, and my brother is getting married in Washington state. My grandma is making the cake for me before i get out there. SHe used to decorate cakes and has given me all of her old cake stuff, which i love! I think that there will be room for refrigeration, so i welcome any ideas. Thank you Jan H and everyone else for all of your suggestions already. I think I am going to try the WASC cake and also try it in chocolate. I just need to figure out fillings. Thank you for all your help already.
