This was a fun wedding reception that was held at the boathouse at Fairmont Park, Riverside. The theme was the 60's, but not like in an Austin Powers kinda way but in a traditional 1960 genre.
We did these cupcakes on vintage stands adorned in gold and navy blue ribbons. The cupcakes were placed in psychedelic wrappers and were accompanied by mini cupcakes to give the presentation some depth. Flavors included red velvet, lemon, and chocolate.
As the sun set, mini candles on the table and on the stands were lit to give this presentation a warm and inviting feel.

Natural June Wedding

So June 12, 2010 was a wonderful opportunity to do this fun, woodsy cake. The couple liked the idea that my cake batter and frostings are made from fresh, all natural ingredients so they asked me to do this cake using my vanilla bean cake batter and topped it off with a margarita lime frrosting. It was a wonderful pairing of flavors for a hot June day. The bride requested these willow twigs be applied to the cake as birds and sticks were the theme of the reception.
