Today's guest dessert feature comes to us from Joie of Orange County, California. Joie is an aspiring bakeshop owner, who has recently been inspired by the dessert table trend. She's also quite crafty, but I'll let her tell you more about that.
from Joie: I love baking cupcakes, and I'm an aspiring bakeshop owner someday. For my cupcake-themed party, I made close to 200 cupcakes, with 8 different flavors (all my original creations, made from scratch)---pistachio, red velvet, black forest, rocky road, tiramisu, nutella, summer berries, and strawberry. I included store bought madeleines, macarons, meringues, cream puffs and mini cupcake candle give-aways. I also had a small candy table using apothecary jars and in the middle of it is a candelabra cupcake stand. he cupcake toppers are also handmade by me, using art papers, punchers, wood picks, hot glue-gun.
This is Joie's first dessert table, and I think she did a great job. If you love Joie's design, be sure to let her know in the comments section.
