So we went with about 75 black and white cookies, about 25 cinnamon french macarons colored red, and a few chocolate cinnamon french macarons. For the cake they wanted to kind of stick with the fall theme there as far as flavors go so we did a 3 tiered round cake with the flavors as pumpkin cake with cinnamon swiss butter cream for the top and bottom tiers and the middle tier was a chocolate cake with hazelnut butter cream! I made the hazelnut butter cream from scratch, as in I didn't use hazelnut flavoring... I used real hazelnuts that I roasted then ground into a hazelnut butter and mixed that with real butter and sugar. It was to die for!
I made red gum paste flowers with black centers for the cake and then filled 3 glass candy jars/vases with black, red and white bubble gum.
I love how beautiful and simple french macarons look!
These flower decorations were handmade by the bride!
I used red accents on the back of the cake, just to tie everything in.
Here is a lovely picture of the bride and groom! I love her dress, it was gorgeous! And up close, the detailing of the black and white lace was amazing!
Today is also the 2nd anniversary of starting my blog. It's crazy--I can't believe it has been two years already. 2 YEARS! That seems like such a long time and I can't wait to see what happens in another two years! Maybe I'll go from having 10 followers to 20... yeah, all kidding aside though it's not about the number of followers I have, it's about the experience and the journey along the way. I have loved every minute of writing this blog and all of the experiences I've had a long the way!
Thank you everyone for all of your support, it really means a lot to me! Cheers to another 2 years (and hopefully more!)
