Today marks the first wedding order I have had the honor to complete. Mini cupcakes and macarons had never been so stressful in my entire life. I had many a sleepless night worrying about my macarons because I’ve had a very horrible spree of failed batches for the last couple of orders.
But thankfully, everything turned out fine. My buttercream didn’t fail on me, my macarons were even and had a full foot, and the gold didt which I painted on didn’t make my macaron shells soggy. It was a success to me, all in all.
These are just flowers in my favorite hue of pink from the local grocery store which my mom randomly picked out for me. I have no idea what this species of flower is, but it is undeniably beautiful (and good to decorate cakes with).
Lavender earl grey, chocolate vanilla, and chocolate raspberry mini cupcakes which were packed into the box first before frosting. I just find that it helps make less of a mess, because there’s a high chance you could smudge some frosting while packing them after frosting. Speaking from experience here.
These are my golden streaked vanilla macarons. I have to say, these look quite lovely and very wedding-ish.Naked mini cupcakes before frosting began. They look so tiny and oh so petite. Extremely easy to eat too – you can just pop them right into your mouth like an M&M and you can enjoy the frosting and cake together. Awesome.
This has been an undeniably fun experience, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in stall for me before I go to London for 9 months 🙂
