We didn’t manage to take pictures as we set up just before the crowd came out so that the cream didn’t melt in the heat! But thankful that everyone was so ravenous that they didn’t bother so much. Haha. We have handmade tartlets (assorted fruits), macarons (earl grey lavender and vanilla raspberry), dark chocolate bundt, brownies, millionaire’s chocolate cake, red velvet cupcakes; rose, raspberry and pistachio cupcakes, apple crumble loaf and lemon drizzle loaf cakes.
I get so excited every time one of my friends gets married (especially when they ask me to do up a dessert table for them)!
The theme of this dessert table was supposed to be aviation and the bride wanted it to be blue and white, but there was a budget so I didn’t want to go overboard with the props. We had to make do with what we had and made this very cute cloud cake topper that accompanied the strawberries and cream cake which was covered in blue/white ombre to look like the sky. The rest of the blue/white elements are mainly from the flowers as the rose and raspberry cake is so pretty I didn’t want to cover it with buttercream! Oh yes, the food tags are also hand painted and written, which were painted to mimic the colours of the sky from sunrise to midday.
A lot of people must be wondering what a london fog cupcake is! It’s an earl grey milk tea cake with a very heavily vanilla scented buttercream.
And what was also the people’s favourite that day was the Smores cupcake which was a rich chocolate cake with scatters of biscuit (made from scratch), dark chocolate filling and a toasty marshmallow meringue (my signature!) topping. On a more personal note, I really hope to set up a dessert table in better lighting or in natural light! Nothing beats capturing food kissed with the soft rays of natural light in pictures! ^.^
One of our first works for my lovely friend, Pei Shya, and her dashing husband, Nigel.
It’s so funny how my friends just tell me, “anything I trust you completely”. And of course, my mind goes crazy thinking of what to do, so I stick to clean, simple, yet stylish. Very lovely for an evening wedding, I must say!
