Elegant Outdoor Wedding Dessert Table: Maggie and Michael

Maggie and Michael's outdoor wedding was held on a picture-perfect summer day at Camrose Hill Farm.  The shabby chic style was accented with touches of green and marigold which went wonderfully with the green landscape.  Cindie Sinclair of Camrose Hill, who is also a family friend of the bride, helped with decor details including the burlap, birch bark, and moss. We think everything turned out beautifully!

The C&F mini dessert table included Vanilla Bean, Black Velvet, Carrot, and Chocolate Salted Caramel Mini Cupcakes, Strawberry Rhubarb Mini Pies, Peanut Butter Cake Lollipops, Key Lime Dessert Shooters, and Vanilla and Salted Caramel French Macarons.  A 2 tier rustic style buttercream cake served as the centerpiece.

Special thank you to  Satori Photography for sharing the photos with us, and check out more images from the wedding at A Northwoods Wedding blog.

Barn Wedding Mini Dessert Table and 2 Tier Cake for Allison and Ryan

Allison and Ryan's wedding reception took place in a beautiful barn just west of the Twin Cities.  The bride’s sister is actually a baker here so we were thrilled to be part of her family's special day.  With a theme of "rustic elegance",  the lighting, chalkboards, mason jar vases, pink roses and baby's breath florals came together for a gorgeous setting.   We kept the theme in the mini dessert table by using milk glass and ornate, vintage style crystal cake stands for displaying the sweets.  The dessert spread included Fresh Fruit Tartlets, Vanilla Cake Lollipops, Valrhona Chocolate Bouchons,  Tiramisu & Banana Pudding Dessert Shooters, Mini Raspberry Swirl Cheesecakes, Mini Black Velvet Cupcakes, and French Macarons.  The elegant, 2 tier fondant-covered cake was adorned with sugar flowers, pearls, and lace with silver painted edges.

Thank you, Allison and Ryan, for letting us create a beautiful cake and mini dessert table for your wedding day, and thanks to Paper Antler for sharing these wonderful images.

Cocoa & Fig Cake Lollipops

What exactly is a cake lollipop, you ask? Our delicious cake is fully baked, then crumbled and mixed with our pure butter buttercream.  We then hand roll this dense cake mixture into perfect rounds, place on a stick, and dip in white, milk, or dark chocolate.  What you get is a smooth chocolate exterior with a rich, "fudgy" textured cake inside.  These have been on the Cocoa & Fig menu since we started back in 2008, and our customers love them! 

We make a variety of flavors daily and have specialty flavors seasonally:
Cake Lollipops Dipped in White Chocolate: Vanilla, Lemon*, Pumpkin*, White Chocolate Raspberry*, Key Lime*
Cake Lollipops Dipped in Dark Chocolate: Chocolate, Black Velvet, Almond Caramel, Coconut*
Cake Lollipops Dipped in Milk Chocolate: Crunchy Peanut Butter (naturally gluten-free)
  *seasonal flavor

Check out all of our cake lollipops identified on this handy-dandy guide:

All cake lollipops are striped with a color which acts as a "garnish" to identify the flavor inside.  They are then placed in a petite liner, similar to a cupcake wrapper, which helps to keep them standing upright and adds a pop of color.  Custom color striping to match your event can be done for a small additional charge.

Check out the gallery below for some of our cake lollipop creations.
