Wedding Sweets

After four days of continuous baking and decorating...I completed 12 dozen cupcakes and a small cutting cake for my nephews wedding.

I have never baked for a wedding before...other than my own so this was more or less a learning experience for me.

I baked 5 different kinds of cupcakes 3 of them being recipes which were revisited and I had baked before in cake form while baking along with my Baked buddies at Baked Sunday Mornings

This one is Antique Caramel Cake with Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting 
a Baked recipe.

I just used the Baked Chocolate cake recipe from the Chocolate Coffee Cake with Dark Chocolate Ganache for this one and filled them with cannoli cream and topped with a little semi sweet chocolate lace heart

Another Baked recipe....This one is my fave Aunt Sassy Cake.  A lovely pistachio cake with honey vanilla bean frosting.

 This one was a new one for me.  I did a traditional wedding cake for the cupcake filled them with raspberry jam and topped it with Italian Meringue Buttercream.  Loved the buttercream! Was intimidated by it at first, but it was fairly easy to make and easy to work with!

Then last but not least, Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Everyone raved about all of them!  The favorites were the Pistachio, the Antique Caramel and the Chocolate filled with cannoli cream.  There were people that tried each kind!  Good thing I made extras!

And the best thing of all is the Bride and Groom loved them!
Glad it is over and so happy it was a success.
I would do it again!

Until next time
