wedding-1234

I recently had the pleasure of making 600 chocolate covered Oreos for an Indian wedding. The designs were simple yet elegant. The whole color scheme was pink and gold to match the beautiful bride’s reception outfit! One had an edible image with the bride and groom’s initials and an ornate fondant frame around it. The other was made using pearlized gold cake lace from Claire Bowman. The cookies were then packed in these boxes from BRP Box Shop. BRP products and customer service is impeccable! It took about 40 pounds of chocolate to make the Oreos. I made close to 700 chocolate covered Oreos as I wanted to make sure the Oreos were perfectly dipped! I was also lucky to . . .

I used a classic chocolate cake recipe, added fresh strawberry puree to SMBC, and finally poured a rich dark chocolate glaze over the top!

Cakes Galore!

The last couple of months I have been obsessed with baking and decorating cakes. I am inspired by so many talented cake artists like Katherine Sabbath, Sweetapolita, Style Sweet CA, Cakestyle, Ivenoven and the list can go on and on. Each of them has their own distinct style which I adore and spend countless hours on Instagram looking at their work. Unlike cookies where you get to decorate many different designs and then select and choose the ones you like the best, decorating a cake is different. At least for me, where everything has to be done right in the first go. This pink mini rosette cake was made for a cake smash shoot for Sherrikellyphotography. Sherri takes the best . . .

I posted these on my Instagram and Facebook page but completely forgot to post it on the blog. These caramel wrapped, chocolate dipped pretzels are addictive and so easy to make. I got the heart and lip molds from my local Walmart. These are Vienna wafers covered in chocolate. The molds are from Spinning leaf. Vienna wafers are not too sweet and perfect when paired with chocolate! We gifted these chocolate covered Oreos to my daughter’s teachers for Valentine’s day! . . . CLICK TO READ MORE
