Qattan/Gray Wedding

Amira and Brandon tied the knot at Temecula Creek Inn's Stone House on October 9th. I had been anticipating this wedding since the beginning of the year. I have known Amira since high school and have stayed in touch with her on many of the social networks. During the last Holiday season Amira and Brandon took a trip of a lifetime to Europe. On Christmas Brandon got down on one knee and proposed to his longtime girlfriend. I had been following their vacation and was so excited when I saw her new profile picture of her ring. These two are so gorgeous and the love they have for one another is one-of-a-kind. I feel truly honored to have been chosen as their baker! Amira and Brandon wanted a dessert buffet    that offered many cupcake options for their guests. I was elated because I have been dying to do a cupcake buffet for sometime now. I am in love with this wedding and this couple! Their vintage, shabby-chic style wedding was to die for!

Congrats Brandon & Amira and thank you again for allowing be to be a part of your special day.

The table consisted of: 
Mini Cupcakes - Chocolate w. Peanut Butter Buttercream, Red Velvet w. Cream Cheese Frosting adorned with edible pearls & Carrot Cake w. Cream Cheese and Walnuts. 
Brownie Cake Pops
Regular Cupcakes - Funfetti with pink hand painted gumpaste roses, traditional Black Forest & Luscious Lemon w. mini chocolate fondant hearts. 
Top Tier - Traditional Red Velvet cake. 

If you are dying over these "love birds" visit: Strawberries & Cream  on Etsy.  I am a little torn over their cake, it was so hot and the drive did some damage to the cake. By the time their cake cutting happened the cake was bulging. Amira wanted a "messy" look which I thought went great with the table and the wedding. I am just upset that it was leaning, good thing was the table was really uneven and I had actually caught one of my cake plates as it was falling with all the luscious lemon cupcakes on it. The base of the stand has broken off and went a slidin'! My heart stopped, luckily I caught it before I lost all those cupcakes!  Don't you just love my new cake stand?

Amira had her invitations custom made by Etsy seller: Sunshine and Ravioli 
She purchase the same stamp used on her invitations for me to replicate matching cupcake toppers for her.
