My First Wedding Order - CONGRATS A & S

OK, So this is where it all began! for those of you who have read my "About Me" will know that it was the compliments from my hubby's co-workers that got me going on my cupcake obsession! I had baked them my Guinness cupcakes filled with a Baileys chocolate ganache topped with a Baileys cream cheese frosting. My cell phone was going to explode for how many compliments my hunny was passing on. One of his co-workers had been searching the city for her 'wedding cupcakes', after devouring her cupcake, she had mentioned the search to my husband and said "This cupcake is to DIE FOR! Do you think she would be interested in baking cupcakes for my wedding?" He answered, like most men would, "let me get back to you". That night, he brought up A's request and at first I thought that she was crazy! I am by no means a professional baker! And these were cupcakes for her WEDDING!!! the event that every girl dreams of! What if I screwed everything up?

After multiple conversations, text messages and sending samples of different cupcakes to my hubby's work (they didn't seem to mind) The bride and groom decided on 3 different kinds of cupcakes for their special day:
Lemon Berry-Licious, Curious George and of course Guinness - the cupcake that started all of this!
Lemon Berry-Licious
The bride also thought that a cutting cake would be a nice addition to the cupcakes so that they have something to 'cut' into - so, another first...FONDANT! The Cake was a success and decorated in the brides theme of fuschia, black and platinum.

Special thanks to Daniela at Pink Pearl Images for the above photo taken at A&S's wedding

Thank you A&S for believing in me and allowing me to be a part of your special day!
