While they look like grapes, they're chocolate eggs according to the website.

Ahhhh chocolate eggs, even better. At some weddings I've seen a bunch of sugared grapes draped on top of the groom's cake. Never ate the grapes though with all that good chocolate frosting around.

Had me puzzled too Venus. Here ya go... Mark is from the US South....

A groom's cake is a wedding tradition originating in Victorian England, but observed more often in the modern age in the American South. While a wedding cake may often be decorated in white and light in texture or color, the groom's cake can take a variety of forms, many incorporating chocolate or fruit.

That's funny, I never knew it was a regional thing. But the cakes were commonly chocolate frosting with purple frosted grapes. I think I had one like it!
