When presentation matters

Cakes, Favors & Gifts

Courtesy of Anna Shea Chocolates

My mom happens to be a great cook, but when it came to my birthday (I always requested chocolate cake) she struggled to perfect the layer cake. It always tasted fantastic, but never seemed to look the way she wanted. I know I've resorted to serving apple pie a la mode in a bowl when the pie was too runny (no problem, I thought, as long as it tastes good). But when it comes to your wedding, presentation does matter. And when it comes to choosing chocolates as wedding favors, Anna Shea Chocolates delivers in both arenas. Anna's packaging happens to be as lovely and refined as the elegantly crafted, hand-painted Belgian and French chocolates she's known for. —from our Local Scout Chicago blogger Beth Wilson
