An Organic Wedding
I had the pleasure of crafting cupcakes for a wedding taking place at the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla a few weekends ago. The bride and groom requested that all the cupcakes be made with natural and organic ingredients, no fondant. It was a challenge but thankfully we have places like Whole Foods, Trader Joes and the internet to help me find organic versions of the products I use. By the way, there are organic versions of almost everything now! Powdered sugar, cinnamon, chocolate, sugar, flour, eggs, milk, butter, and more!
The bride and groom ordered A Kid Again, Tea Time, All American and a custom flavor of chocolate stout cupcake topped with cream cheese buttercream. The groom loves Guinness and was happy when I told him that I could make a chocolate cake with his favorite stout.
I apologize for the picture quality. A photographer I am not and the semi-dark lighting inside the aquarium made picture taking a challenge.

The bride snuck out to take a look while I was setting up the table and she was very happy and couldn’t wait to bite into a cupcake.
Congratulations to Kate and Steve!
