i work at a banquet hall so me and all the other girls are always planning our own weddings. lol. it's fun. lately i've fallen in love with cupcakes. starts used to be my symbol, now it's cupcakes. so i'm browsing for appliques and earings all over craftser and i get linked out to this www.cupcaketakesthecake.com
site and scrolling through the images i see people have poured batter into ice cream cones (sugar, not waffle, so they can actually stand up) and frost the top to look like soft serve.
my favorite cake presentation at work is when they do cake with chocolate covered ice cream truffles.
when i saw the ice cream cupcake cones i though "oh cool they put ice cream in the bottom and stick the cupcake on top where the lip widens. then i was told it's all cupcake. but now i've decided i'm going to do liek a parfait of layered ice cream/chocolate/fruit in the bottom of a sugar cone and settle cupcakes in the top portion.
i think it's great becasue it's:
2) all dessert inclusive
3) easy on the staff and on the guests becasue it's al in a nice clean package (cone!)
now If i ever get married i just have to match the flavors with twhatever color scheme i use.
any thoughts? I think it's adorable, but i'm kind of a nut when it comes to making work less messy and have less things to do. imagime drizzling berry coulie and adding a truffle for every single cake plate in a 230 person wedding, blah!!
