A Glistening Affair

A Sweets Couture Table for the Amy Atlas Blog.

It feels as if a delicate and cool, frosty, wintry breeze has swept over this beautiful table... and a winter wonderland of infinitely tasteful delights and a beautiful bride (in Vera Wang, I might add) has emerged...

Let me begin by saying, I adore Lori Hutchinson's cakes. She is so so talented! This lovely scheme of frosty silver, delicate white, cream, and bits of icy sparkle, combine for a truly glamorous, dreamy table. I cannot get over the charming details and tasty delights throughout—and I just love how pearls and lace were such a large part of the dessert bar design. They just complete the look so well, don't they? This dessert bar included: lace wrapped pumpkin cupcakes, macarons, malted chocolate pearls, and licorice white cotton candy... oh my! To read more of the complete story and to appreciate all of the details, hands and eyes that went into creating this look, please click here.
