Phew! The expression that comes to mind when I think of these wedding cupcakes. The call came the day we returned from our trip. I had barely put my bags down when the phone started ringing…4 missed calls? This must be a serious caller I thought. And then I got to speak to the prospective bride and I knew I had to do it. She sounded really sweet on the phone and her “pleeeeeaaase tell me you can do it” when i told her the notice was a bit short, sealed the deal. Plus, when she told me who referred her…a childhood friend from wayyyy back who had told her sister in the States about us, I couldnt resist. So we set up a wedding consultancy for her cupcakes. The day Sharon and her cousin walked through my door, I knew I had made the right choice to accomodate her request. My CCh bride wanted cupcakes and boy! did she want cupcakes…500 petit beauties! Over the weeks that followed, we agreed on designs and flavours. Sharon wanted their initials on the cupcakes. Since we had a lot of cupcakes to work with, we decided to have bride cupcakes baked in gold liners, with the bride’s initials on them and gold pearls. We also had Groom cupcakes baked in dark red liners and the groom’s initials on them. We also had the in-betweens, dressed in ivory liners and rich swirls of buttercream frosting. All matched her beautiful decor choice of red, gold and ivory. The bride’s verdict…”they were very very nice…I loved them”. Glee.
