Wedding favours

A friend, and regular customer, suggested me to a friend of hers who was getting married yesterday.  And even more thrilling, the bride said yes to Becca Bakes!  So we made her some favours to put at the table for the children at the wedding, blue & stars for boys and pink & butterflies and flowers for girls.  We sourced matching individual cupcake boxes, and matching glitter (I do so love a bit of sparkle on my cakes) and the bride was thrilled when she came to collect them.

I made her a treat of a spare one, a Vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream icing coloured blue with blue glitter and she loved it.  So pleased, as she'd ordered without ever tasting anything we'd baked.  We also had some Lemon Drizzle Cake left from the previous morning (I hadn't told you about this, as it didn't go quite according to plan.  The cake wasn't lemony enough by far, and the drizzle was more like lacquer, needing a chisel rather than a knife to cut into it!), so we shared a slice on her arrival, and she loved that too - even the hard/chewy drizzle coating. 
Here she is, looking like a real princess with her Daddy...
