Love Sweet Love

March 10, 2010

I recently had the great privilege of attending E’s wedding (she of ET Artisan Sweets fame).

Like my husband and me, E and YH had dated for quite some time before they got engaged, so we were just thrilled to find out last year that they had gotten engaged, and even more delighted to attend their beautiful wedding service and reception at the end of February. By far and away, this was one of the most beautiful, classy, and more importantly joyous weddings I have ever attended.

Being familiar with E’s creations, most guests like myself expected a pretty exceptional dessert spread at the wedding, but whatever expectations we’d had were blown right out of the water when we got to the reception. Little gasps of awe and wonder were heard across the room as we came face to face with the 8-meter long (yes, 8-meter) table of exquisite desserts that E’s little team of magic helpers had put together. Not only was every single item on the table outstandingly beautiful, each one also tasted as good as it looked (at least those that I tried were, and err… I tried an embarrassing number of things…)

Here are some not-great pictures taken with my iPhone (and still you can see just how gorgeous everything was). For more (and better quality) pictures of the mind-bogglingly beautiful dessert spread, check out the ET Artisan Sweets Facebook Page.

First up, the fairytale wedding cake (in the unique and lovely color theme of red and teal), along with one of three or four different selections of petit fours:

Next up are some of the prettiest cupcakes you will ever see (dressed in the most baffling laser cut cupcake wrappers), and E’s signature macarons:

There was even a selection of handbag cupcakes! Here’s one that my hubby brought to our table. And I just loved that the wedding favours (E’s signature choc chip cookies) were beautifully packaged in theme-colored boxes that bore silhouette prints of the sweet couple.

I will never not ever be able to bake or decorate like this. But I’m so glad I have a friend who can! =D

    I would be hyperventilating all the way through. I would be like a kid in a candy store. I would go on a phototaking rampage. And I would be eating AND tapau-ing. Your iphone takes brilliant shots. The colours are so vivid and bright!
