My First Wedding!

The date is quickly approaching for my first wedding project!

I am so excited, but a bit nervous.  I am a perfectionist and will settle for nothing less so the pressure is already starting to get to me.  I know once it is done I will be so proud and hopefully the bride and groom will be very happy and that will make it all worth it.  Once I have one wedding under my belt I am sure the others won't be nearly as intimidating!

I sat down with the Bride and Groom a few weeks ago for a cupcake tasting.  I had 8 different flavors for them to choose from:

Chocolate w/ Peanut Butter Cream Cheese, my "Birthday Cupcake," Red Velvet, Hummingbird, Carrot, Toasted Coconut, Lemon Cream, and Triple Chocolate.

The ones with the purple flowers are how their cupcakes will actually look.  The wedding colors are dark purple and silver.

This one was a favorite and is one of the "Chosen Ones."  This is my Chocolate Cupcake with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting.  Sooo good and the cake is probably one of the moistest I've ever had.

They also chose this Carrot Cupcake.

And this Lemon Cream Cupcake.

See that blurred red thing in the corner?  That is my Red Velvet Cupcake and the last of the "Chosen Ones."  However, we are going to do a little twist on it and make it Purple Velvet to match with their wedding colors.

I really am so excited and can't wait for you to see the finished product.  My Dad is building a custom cupcake stand for me just for the occasion, but is something I will have from now on to use for future events.  It is going to be so beautiful! 

Thanks so much for following.  I have so many new cupcake photos and will try to get some more posts up soon!
