This weekend I had the pleasure of making 24 dozen cupcakes plus a 6" cutting cake for a huge wedding at Tom Ham's Lighthouse at shelter island. It was funny to be back there just a week after my bike team had been training, passing the venue 9 times as we circled the island!!
The bride and groom decided on a simple blue and white theme, and provided a beautiful topper for the cake, which really complemented it beautifully. I added a handmade sugar peony, which I was worried would look fussy, but I think it turned out well.
This was accompanied by cupcakes in four flavors, carrot with cream cheese, lemon with lemon curd filling and vanilla buttercream, chocolate with praline buttercream, and a gluten free orange almond with chocolate ganache.
It was fun coming to set up and finding all the other little details that matched the cakes, with the blue table runners, blue and white flowers all matching the theme.
I was happy to be set up and out of there before any guests arrived. I hope it was a fun party!
