My first wedding has gone and past without any problems. It was really fun to create all these different flavors and decorations. I had some help too (thanks Terryn!) otherwise it would have been a very long night.
As promised, here are some pictures:
The bride ordered 7 dozen cupcakes in the following flavors:
Queen of Hearts – Red Velvet with cream cheese buttercream
Celebration (new flavor) – Champagne cupcake filled with raspberries and topped with Champagne buttercream
Southern Belle – Coconut cake topped with coconut creme pie buttercream
DIY – Chocolate stout cupcake topped with marshmallow buttercream (groom’s request)

I was unsure about the acrylic stand but I actually ended up loving it. I think it looks great! It really makes the cupcake stand out. It ended up being enough to hold 35 cupcakes with another 15 underneath along the bottom for a total of 50 cupcakes. The leftover cupcakes were kept in the fridge for part 2 of the reception taking place later that evening.
So it was a busy weekend but I enjoyed every minute of it!! I really wanted to make it to the LA Cupcake Challenge on Sunday but I was too tired and pretty cupcaked out. Hopefully next year I’ll be participating in the challenge! That’s one of my goals.
Right now I am looking for someone to help me build a logo/create an image for Meringue Bake Shop. It’s having an identity crisis. If you know of anyone that could help, please let me know by leaving a comment below.
