Another Tasting: Love Birds

Here are a few pics from the tasting this morning.  Birds and monograms and flowers.  Soo pretty!  I have to work on the color a gray faded to lavender.  :(  And the yellow needs to be brightened up a touch, but otherwise, this is one I'm really looking forward to. 

Do I say that about all of them?  I guess I'm just lucky to have such stylish brides.

Tasting for September Wedding

It's March and wedding season is quickly approaching.  I had a tasting last week with a September bride.  On the menu for them to try were Chocolate Coffee and Vanilla Cupcakes with a mix of Chocolate and Vanilla Bean butter cream frosting.  A few vanilla cupcakes were filled with blueberry perserves and topped with Lemon Cream Cheese frosting.  Yum!  The colors were black and white with plum accents.  The reception will be at an art museum and they decided to switch to just black and white so as not to contrast with the art.  Brilliant!  Here is what they got to taste.  I think they liked them.  They at nine!  :)

Perfectly baked chocolate coffee cupcakes.  If I do say so myself.

 Specs of vanilla beans.

 Topped with a dark chocolate covered coffee bean.

 A stamped fondant topper with dragees I colored with pearl dust.

 Mmmm...blueberry filling and lemon cream cheese frosting.  Dreamy.

Getting ready for another tasting tomorrow for a June wedding.  Look for pics of those coming soon!
