Michael and Rebecca, what can I say? I'm thrilled to pieces for these two. I've known them both for quite a while through the Pathology group we all work(ed) for. When Michael asked if I would bake cupcakes and cookies for a Fall themed Smoky Mountain wedding, well gosh. I couldn't wait to get started.
I love Fall so much. I think PW summed it up for me when she tweeted "I would marry fall if I could". The next best thing (or better thing?) would be to get married in Fall. The wedding is being held today and the weather is perfect. I know hearts are glad all around.
We did three large platters of cupcakes, three smaller platters of cookies, and three baskets of favors. One of each went in the three adorable cabins they had rented.
Mmmm, the cupcake flavors:
- Pumpkin chocolate chip with maple buttercream icing
- Devil's food with chocolate buttercream icing
- Red velvet with vanilla buttercream icing
- Double vanilla with vanilla buttercream icing
Through this project I discovered my new favorite baking item. Check out these cupcake papers and baking cups from KAF. The finished product is more like a mini cake instead of a cupcake. No popping one of these into your mouth. You'll need a fork for sure.
OH, yes and how could I forget?! I received an email from Michael asking if he could add some Yankees cookies to his order. Of course!
*I am adding a disclaimer though. He did explain that he was not a big fan, but lots of the attendees would love them. What a nice guy, right?
So, in closing I would just like to thank Michael and Rebecca for giving me the opportunity to bake for one of the most memorable days in their lives.
Wishing you only the best,
P.S. Extra, extra special love and thanks to Meggy for the invaluable help. Plus, isn't she a cutie?
