This June, I had the extreme pleasure of making the cupcakes for Rupi and Gurveen's wedding. I first met Rupi when she was a summer student in the office I was spending my days in. I saw early on that she was bright, eager and hard-working - all qualities I respected, and we became friends. I was very excited when she announced her engagement and asked to meet for a consultation. At the end of the consultation, Rupi and Gurveen were ready to book me, but I encouraged them to go out and meet with other bakers. After all, this was a once in a life time opportunity for free cake, and I wanted them to explore their options. I was very satisfying when they came back to me with stories of high prices and dried out cupcakes. We made the arrangements and the happy couple ordered 300 cupcakes, a topper cake, plus an anniversary cake for the bride's parents,who's anniversary was the day following the wedding (but the couple wanted to acknowledge and celebrate at midnight - what a great idea!).
Cupcake buttercream flavours included: Lime, Mango, Vanilla (tinted pruple) and Raspberry.
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!
