Sweets table at Atzaro
Atzaro really is a stunning venue, with lush gardens and plenty of space to chill out or party. I have the opportunity to visit there frequently delivering my hand made wedding cakes. Last night I was delighted to deliver and set up something a little different; a sweet table for a wedding with 150 guests who had all flown in from Madrid! It was a delight to design and work on creating this table. I was given carte blanche to create it and my only specifications were: add some lollipops and use some lilac and white as these were the colours of the day.
The table was created totally in those two colours, together with a splash of silver. The lollipops (huge!) were a special order made in the UK and you’ve guessed it – in lilac and white! The whole thing was made up of my own ideas and dare I say inspirations. I drove my partner mad with random thoughts on what to put on this table!!! He was of course a great help bouncing ideas around with me, he also covered all the boxes and cleaned all the glass stands ready for the day (He is a sweetheart!). Cup-cakes were covered in laser cut ‘butterfly’ wrappers, and some mini cakes were then the central attraction. I used lots of edible sparkles which included ‘sparkly hearts’, lilac shimmer, and hologram white diamond. I think the whole outcome was especially beautiful. It certainly had the ‘Wow’ factor, with many of the wedding guests requesting my card, and sadly many were disappointed to realize that I normally only work on Ibiza! – There were a few who were thinking of marrying on Ibiza, so more work will flow……..
The table was put on display at 11pm after dinner and speeches on the terrace near the disco area as the guests moved from the dining room out towards the dance floor. It worked perfectly, with so many people enjoying not only a cup-cake or mini-cake. A glorious festive feeling was created with the fun of the huge lollipops – being enjoyed by both young and old! Sweets tables are becoming the fashion, and very popular with many including coloured macaroons and iced biscuits, together with the ‘old fashioned sweets’ that many remember from their childhood. It really is a lovely way to give some very novel ‘favours’ to your guests, a small sweetie bag is supplied and the guests can choose for themselves. It does provide a real centrepiece and talking point.
I am looking forward to creating more of these special tables, although they do take time to design and prepare. For the moment though, I am concentrating on my next wedding cake – to be delivered to lovely venue of
