Purple and Black - January 9

Tiffany and Tanner had their very dramatic purple and black wedding at Sequoia Restaurant in Placerville. This really is an example of the little details making a big impact!

I'm forever telling my couples to be creative with their cake toppers. Tiffany received the Corpse Bride and Groom as a Christmas present... they are ornaments! Keep in mind that when you get creative with cake toppers you may need to take into account support. There is NO WAY that adorable little groom would have stood up without those flowers... as it is you can barely see his shoes!

The decoration for this cake was a quilted pattern with black dragees at every intersection point. Clean, simple, beautiful!

mmmmm Salted Caramel Tartlets (I do LOVE that pink Hawaiian sea salt!)

I love elevating the simple cream puff. These little guys had white chocolate "hats" that had the same pattern as the name cards and the "Sweet Treats" sign. I'm tellin' you, it really is those little details that show up in the pictures, and, although they might not be noticed at the time that everyone is eating them, really does contribute to a sense of continuity when you look at the entire display.

Fruit Tartlet... enough said!

This is only the second time I've make butterscotch pudding for a wedding, but how fun are these! I particularly like the rough shards of toffee sticking out of the glasses.

Strawberry Mousse, I just LOVED the tiny quanelles of whipped cream on top.

Lemon Mousse... I'm forever hearing that these look like high healed shoes. The cookie on the back is a ladyfinger, and nothing goes better with lemon than blueberries!
