A wedding is always a great excuse to have sweets, right?  A friend and former Martin Agency co-worker of mine is the mother-of-the-bride this weekend and asked me to help her put together some surprises for various family members and guests.  I first met the bride when she was in high school...and she is now a lovely young woman, living in NY and working for CNN online.  I am honored to have been asked to provide treats for her special weekend.
I was particularly excited to work on this as it gave me a chance to work on a variety of different designs and techniques.  Creatively, it was a blast.  Here's what they received:

The couple elected not to have a traditional wedding cake at the reception.  However, the MotB wanted to surprise the bride with a cake for the rehearsal dinner.  The dinner is themed - Roarin' 20's - so I created this cake to complement.  The topper is a plaque using the painted chocolate technique - all painted by hand and all edible.  Calla lilies were added at the base of the feathers after delivery.

Bride and Groom cakepops will be provided in the wedding party dressing rooms prior to the ceremony.

The Groom's family hails from India, so they will receive sari-inspired pops as a hotel room treat.

The Bride's family will receive a variety of pop flavors in their hotel in the elegant color scheme of the wedding...lavender, brown, white.

Congratulations Crystal and Thiru!

Until next time..
