After a fantastic long weekend of good company, great food and wonderful weather, it was right back to work for me! This week Anna Maria and Sean celebrated their engagement with their family. The hall was beautifully decorated with royal blue table cloths, water filled centre pieces and fairy lights. Each of the bombonieres were wrapped in white paper identical royal blue bows. The blue rose boutonnieres were gorgeous against the black suits and the bride to be look stunning in her royal blue dress! I was so honoured that my art work could take centre stage to this beautifully put together party. The lower cake is devil's food chocolate with raspberry buttercream. The top cake is a yummy vanilla with lime buttercream, one of my new favourite combinations. Everything is 100% edible, except for the silver ribbon in the name tags. I'm pretty sure the couple was happy with their cake because they said they would be contacting soon about the wedding cake!
It was also Anna Maria's brother's birthday the day of the party and she wanted to recognize him, so she asked me to make another small cake for him. This one is chocolate with mocha buttercream, another amazing combination. I had to rush to grab this picture and run before the party started, but you get the idea. Notice the *edible* sparkles on the little stars. Happiness is edible sparkles.
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
