Inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh

IMG_0373

Helens choice of wedding cake was inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Scottish architect, designer, water colourist and artist, whose work played an influential role in European design movements such as art nouveau.

The cake was a two tier cake made from raspberry & white chocolate sponge, sugar calla lilies provided the finishing touch.

One of his famous designs was The Room de Luxe at The Willow Tearooms, Glasgow, where he designed  the furniture and interior, the style of which are clearly identifiable in this cake design too.

Decadent Fudge Blondies

If, like myself you are partial to a little chocolate treat every now and again this blonde version of the traditional brownie classic maybe just the recipe for you. We offered this tempting blondie as one of the treats on the ‘Cookie Bar’ we made for Tanias’ wedding recently. As promised in the featured blog for this wedding, here is the recipe for White Chocolate Blondie.

Decadent Fudge Blondie

INGREDIENTS:  2 Eggs;  150g Sugar;  150g White Chocolate; 175g Butter;  200g Plain Flour; 100g Raspberries or nuts:

INSTRUCTIONS: Set oven to 170 degrees C fan to heat up.

1.) Line a baking tin (approx 25cm x 20cm) with oven proof paper

2.) Melt white chocolate and butter in a basin over a pan of hot water, stir well

3.) Remove chocolate from heat and add the sugar, then the eggs, then the flour.

4.) A liitle ‘optional’ extra at this stage. In this recipe I added macademia nuts but raspberries also work well.

5.) Pour into the baking tin.

6.) Bake close to the top of the oven for 30 mins. For a softer gooey centre remove from the oven 5 mins earlier.

7.) Remove from oven, place on a cooling rack and allow to cool before cutting into squares.

Serving Suggestions: Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, remove and add ice cream or cream to serve.

Coral Beach Wedding

This week as always at this time of year, it has been rather hectic and extremely hot, with June temperatures soaring to 36 degrees C!!..but that didn’t stop us. One of our lovely weddings this week took place sitting on the waters edge over looking the beach at the Marinas de Nerja Hotel. An idyllic spot for any person looking for a beach wedding here in Nerja.

Tanias’ colour scheme was a beautiful rich coral, which was brought to life with crystal organza sashes and decorated sandlewood fans to match.

Tania opted for the ever popular cookie bar rather than the more traditional wedding cake, where we expanded our cookie repertoire and tried out a couple of new goodies – a white chocolate blondie and some snickerdooodle cookies. If you are wondering what these are or how to make them, stay tuned into this blog as the recipes will follow in a day or two.

 

Pretty Pastels

The wedding of Ruth and David took place yesterday at Casa de Los Bates, a venue surrounded by the natural beauty of their stunning gardens.

Ruth opted for some very pretty cupcakes, decorated in pretty pastel shades, complimented with pretty sugar flower decorations. Our cute cupcake sign was on hand to help guests choose their cupcake flavour!

Hand written ‘natural’ guest name cards identified the wedding guests place at the table, these were co-ordinated with the very pretty step ladder seating plan.

Lovely .. like a Butterfly

It is always a challenge to come up with different ways and ideas of displaying our edible showstoppers.  For the wedding today Natalie opted for a natural butterfly themed cupcake display. Set amidst the tropical gardens at Casa de los Bates, this was a perfect choice.

Displaying the cupcakes on a standard round cupcake tower stand, just didn’t seem to cut the mustard for todays wedding somehow; so having spotted these delightful display steps in the Casa sale a few months ago, I decided that they would be the perfect prop for displaying Natalies’ cupcakes today.

Large sugar roses sat at the base of the top tier as decoration, which was set just to the side of the cupcake display on a matching crate. The cupcakes, set out on the shelves where decorated with smaller sugar roses. Butterfly cupcake wrappers, attractive signage, gypsophila and pretty fabric were used to create this butterfly cupcake showpiece.
