Birthday Dessert Table

    Newer Older

    Threw a party Saturday to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday this week. I made his favorite yellow cake with soft caramel frosting and some cupcakes I thought up. He's half Irish so I made chocolate cupcakes with homemade Irish cream topped with Irish cream SMBC and homemade chocolate cups containing Irish cream shots. Glad to say he liked it all! I tried not to go too girly with the display and I think I succeeded...except for the pompoms ...hahah.

    Story and recipe on my blog.

      Love EVERYTHING! Those forks are fantastic, and it was very clever to think up chocolate shot cups! Nice work!

      Those wooden forks are so pretty. And I like your cupcakes. They look like they're wearing chocolate crowns. :)

      I like the set up, like a birthday for a grown up kid :)) I find the light also nice, and those cupcakes.... well, they look wonderful.

      You have such beautiful cake stand and you have succeeded with not too girly. I love your green paper cups. Like Aprna, those cupcakes like they're wearing crowns. I wish you could make those for my birthday :D

      Thanks Hannah! The sky kept alternating being super cloudy or super bright so i struggled with the lighting but the styling i could control ha!

      Hah, hah! I'm thinking of two words: controlled fun. I like the orderly manner of the setting, yet it is able to convey joy. The color and light of the cake is wonderful. It looks perfect and tasty.

      Hehe yea you're right. Maybe it's the control freak in me keeping the party under wraps ;p. I honestly wanted to get the pompoms in this shot too but couldn't get them that low. Glad it looks good to you!
