And we're back...
We had a pretty busy weekend around here last weekend - Uncle J (my brother) got married! I offered to make the lovely couple cupcakes instead of a wedding cake, it seemed to go well with the fun, cocktail reception they had planned. I loved getting to contribute something and my contribution was about 200 cupcakes, seen here on the awesome stand I got at Cupcake Tower (medium size). We had Almond Pound cake with Vanilla Buttercream, Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting and Cappuccino Chocolate Chip with Mocha Buttercream. The bride and groom enjoyed cutting their cupcake and the stand was instantly emptied as soon as they walked away from the table - a hit, yay! I had been debating with my husband and BFF about whether people would eat more than one and I thought (against everyone else's opinion) that people WOULD in fact eat more than one because there were a variety of flavors. I'm happy to report that I spoke to more than one guest who sampled ALL THREE flavors. Sweet. If you're interested I can tell you that I allowed a cupcake and a half per person and that seemed to work out well.
Check out the post-ceremony shoe and jacket change - that flower girl already has a mind of her own when it comes to fashion! She LOVED the flowers petal filled basket and took the job of emptying and refilling it very seriously. All night and on into this week. Give that girl a job and she will get it done!
So now that our big event has been successfully crossed off our list I'm hoping life will be settling down a little bit. I took my sewing machine to get serviced and learned that I'd been using the wrong bobbin for oh, the entire time I've owned it! Whoops! But that's a story for another day. So anyway, back to sewing, baking for fun and life as normal as possible!
