Olivia and I began our Coco Cake cupcake conversation over her wedding day way back in November… and I found her to be so sweet, kind and full of cute ideas. She really wanted to do something cute and different for wedding cupcakes… but wasn’t quite sure where to go with it. We talked about robots, dolphins (her fiancee loves dolphins but she was veto-ing that idea!), their love of the outdoors… I wanted to get to know who they were so some potential ideas could develop. Eventually Olivia mentioned they were getting married at the horse stables and she is a teacher… and their wedding colours were red and robin’s egg blue. So I thought of apples! Apples for teachers, and a crunchy snack for horses… and it turned out Olivia is allergic to real apples and was thrilled to have “apples” on her wedding day…
For Olivia and Jeremy’s wedding, I made ten dozen cupcakes, half in chocolate cupcakes and half in raspberry cupcakes, frosted in vanilla buttercream, and decorated in red sanding sugar with green fondant leaves and dark chocolate bark “stems”!
And a sunny wedding day to boot, even though it called for rain… such is luck in love! I hope to post a pic of the lovely couple soon too.
Happy Matrimony Olivia and Jeremy!
