Dessert table: Birds! Hearts! Flowers!

This was a JOY to make. The bride, Lauren, a creative type herself, already had a lovely theme worked out: a lot of pastel colours with a cute red ‘pop’ here and there, and more than a touch of Kath Kidston. So, yes, I was happy from the start! Lauren was going to make her own cupcakes and a lot of other nice touches. All I had to do was come up with the cake, iced cookies and cookie pops. So, we thought… birds would be a good place to start… birds with hearts:

And if we’re going to have bird cookies, we need some bird cookies on a stick. These are decorated the same way: roll out icing with royal icing details… I like this way of displaying them in little glass vases with just plain ‘ol white granulated sugar poured into the bottom to help them stand up.

And on to the main cake. We need pale blue. Pale blue gingham, yo. (It’s not often that ‘gingham’ is combined with ‘yo’ in a sentence. I am typing this now while my son sleeps — I won’t be able to get away with this kind of behaviour for much longer.)

Lauren has her own Etsy store, Pippa and Coco, which is full of lovely things and you should definitely rifle through when you have a moment. I have my heart set on one of these pompom garlands, so I’ll be making a purchase as soon as I can find an excuse. ‘Early May Bank Holiday tea party?’ tappity-tap-tap-tap (that’s the sound of Paypal login details being punched in).

Thanks for looking! I hope you like what you see! xx
