Rustic Outdoor Wedding Mini Dessert Table: Erin & Brett

Erin and Brett had a gorgeous, outdoor summer wedding at Gale Woods Farm on Whaletail Lake in Minnetrista, MN.  With a ceremony site that overlooks the lake and a big, red barn as the reception space, their day was full of rustic charm.  

The dessert table included Lemon Raspberry and Peanut Butter Mini Cupcakes, Salted Caramel French Macarons, Mini Chocolate Chunk Cookies, and Fresh Fruit Tartlets.  Their centerpiece cake was a Chocolate Salted Caramel Cake with fresh flowers accenting the top.  The bride provided all of the cake stands and platters herself along with the adorable "Sweets" sign and monogram table accents.

Congrats to Erin and Brett, and special thanks to Geneoh Photography for the amazing photos.  See more images of the wedding at Geneoh Photography's blog.

Dessert Guest Favors and Party Favors

Edible favors make a great welcome or thank you gift for guests or clients at your special event. Cocoa & Fig offers individually wrapped and ribbon-tied treats such as cake lollipops, French macarons, pie-on-a-stick, S’mores, and more. A custom hang tag/thank you note from you to your guests can be tied to each favor, too!

Here is a sampling of some guest favors we have done in the past.  You can see how a theme or color scheme is easy to incorporate into the packaging, and sometimes, even the desserts!

Cake Lollipop Escort Favors are a great option offering an edible way to treat your guests to their table. A longer lollipop stick is used to leave enough room for the table number tag at the top.

Barnyard Birthday Cake

We made a fun, farm theme birthday cake for little Miss V's 3rd birthday.  Two tiers of adorable farm happenings - a blue sky with puffy clouds, sunshine, and bees, and green grass with flowers and farm animals.  It was topped off with a red barn, a cute lamb, and a cow print bow.  This cake has everything from the barnyard!
