Julie & Tim's Wedding

This tower was for a wedding held at the Patrick Haley Mansion in Joliet. What a beautiful venue for a wedding! I love this cupcake tower! The bride and her parents made it. It was so beautiful, they did an amazing job. The top cake was made by Patty and the flowers were done by Flowers By Color. The florist was really wonderful; everything she created for the event was just lovely. The cupcakes on the tower were chocolate with cream cheese frosting and yellow with vanilla buttercream. All cupcakes were decorated with edible sugar pearls. The other flavors of cupcakes (they were in the kitchen to be served on trays) were red velvet with cream cheese frosting and chocolate chip with chocolate fudge.

Shawna & Dante's Wedding

My final wedding at Meson Sabika this season. This event was held in their pavilion. The bride requested that the cupcakes be put on gold trays that she provided. I put place cards by each different flavor cupcakes. I think it will be really fun for the guests. The flavors are: carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, chocolate chip cucpakes with chocolate fudge frosting, lemon cupcakes with lemon curd buttercream and red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

Silver & Pink Bridal Shower

This tower was created for a bridal shower. The wedding colors are hot pink and silver. My client requested the cupcakes match the theme. The cake was specifically requested as a silver gift box with pink bow.....of course I enlisted Patty to make the cake. The cupcakes were chocolate and yellow with cream cheese frosting, and sprinkled with coarse sugar.

Note from Niki

I just received this lovely note from the bride whose wedding I did cupcakes for this past Saturday. It was so sweet, I just had to share it.

Hi Rose,

We cannot say enough about how much our guests raved about your
spectacular cupcakes. They were unbelievably moist and delicious.
Phil and I are already planning to order some more because we truly
wanted to taste all the flavors!! One of my favorite moments of the
day was right after the ceremony, my 3 yr old nephew and my friends'
4 yr old daughter were sweetly sitting at a table together, eating cupcakes
together, their parents apologizing that they had eaten them so early - frosting
on each of them from ear to ear! Was perfect.
Our guests loved that we had cupcakes instead of the traditional cake and thought
the presentation was beautiful.
Thank you so much for your hard work and lovely demeanor. We hope to be
talking to you soon about placing orders for parties and the like.

Warmest regards,
Niki and Phil

Laura & Ira's Wedding

Wedding cupcake tower created for another wedding at Meson Sabika. It is becoming the place to have a wedding in Naperville. They do a really nice job there. The bride wanted to stick with simple decorations all along the pale green color that matched the orchids that were used. I did some monograms of their last name initial and some green dots, the other cupcakes had some soft sugar. The flavors were red velvet with cream cheese, chocolate chip with chocolate fudge, chocolate with cream cheese, lemon with lemon curd buttercream and white chocolate with vanilla buttercream.

I received this sweet note from the bride:

Dear Rose:

I wanted to say thank you for the cupcakes on June 6. They were delicious and beautiful, and I received many compliments on them. I was extremely pleased with your work. Thank you!

Faith's 1st Birthday Cupcake Tower

These pictures were sent to me by my client, Faith's mom, after her first birthday celebration. Katy set up the tower at her home, and since I love to see the finished product, asked her to send me some pictures. She did a great job! So happy to see Faith enjoying her big cupcake. The flavors of cupcakes on the tower are; white chocolate cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting, and lemon cupcakes with lemon curd cream cheese frosting. Yum!
