My little cousin (who isn’t so little anymore!) has grown into such a vibrant and beautiful young woman. She’s gone off to college, met the Russian man of her dreams and likeall fairy tales, tied the knot so they can live their happily ever after. The Allen’s asked me to help with their big day in a few ways, one of which was to build a custom dessert bar for a wedding chock full of sugar lovers. I seriously couldn’t believe how long that dessert line was…it went pretty much the entire length of the ballroom! We filled it with an assortment of cakebites, cupcakes, cookies and bars with plenty of Forde family favorites and Afton Market staples mixed in. I drew inspiration for the table design from the happy bride and grooms favorites starting with COLOR! I like to think of this design as classy and colorful. I also commissioned my cupcake maven’s skills and had her create cupcake toppers to reflect other favorites such as mountain biking, nature, reading, skiing, ice cream, running, etc… I thought the table turned out beautiful and very, very personal.
One of the most beautiful weddings I’ve had the pleasure of being a part was the union of our friends Peter & Amber. It was so much fun working alongside my brothers as a team to capture their big day and so refreshing coming up with inspiration to style their custom cakebite display.
Last year I had the pleasure of sampling our cakebites with some of Rock County’s finest chefs at Chef’s Cooking for a Cause; a charity event organized by the YWCA and The Janesville Country Club. As a participating Chef, we are asked to donate an auction item and I gladly handed over a certificate for a custom dessert spread for up to 100 people. Here is a fun display for a 50th birthday bash that came out of it.
I was given a decorative napkin to pull my inspiration from. Black and white with lots and lots of bright color inspired me to create a fun loving, rainbow color-filled diplay. We added assorted candy filled containers and even some gold dusted chocolate lollipops for extra flair.
I really appreciated the non-typical approach for the event!
I don’t typically do many character cakepops as it isnt exactly my forte. So I brought Cass onto this project and comissioned her to create mini Angry Birds toppers out of modeling chocolate. These little guys averaged 3/4 of an in and were soooo perfect for the collection! Let’s just say that was one happy birthday boy!
Our team had the pleasure of adding our flair to the local Bridal Fair alongside Couture Celebrations. It’s always wonderful to meet other wedding vendors and ALWAYS a pleasure to meet the “couples to be”.
This mini dessert spread was inspired by the Couture Celebrations logo.
