The couple had visited NYC and of course, went to Magnolia Bakery. There, they both fell in love with the vanilla vanilla cupcake and wanted me to recreate the experience for their wedding. After many recipe trials, we came to an agreement on which 'recipe' would be THE ONE!! So, the night before the wedding was extraordinarily busy!! I made 165 cupcakes, along with 75 chocolate bouchons to satisfy the chocolate cravers of the world and my German mom baked apricot cookies and pecan and poppyseed coffee cakes. How fun!!
Family members gathered around the kitchen table to put together the little individual blue boxes that would 'house' the leftover cupcakes as a take home gift to those who stayed til the end and wanted a little dessert to take home with them. Each box, in the tiffany blue color to go with their wedding colors, was be-ribboned and had lovely little stickers with the bride and groom's names and date of the wedding. After grandpa made about 5 of them, he asked, 'how many are there of these?'
Here, the cupcake tower all put together----it turned out beautifully and we added white lights to the bottom which added a gorgeous glow as the sun set and the evening unfolded....
