Pie a' la Bella

We were honored to be a part of the dessert display for the wedding of the former editor, Ali Basye of Seattle Bride and her now new husband Todd.

All the French pastries were created by the Tallant House. The spread was truly amazing; from home made marshmallow Smores, tarts, chocolate domes and more. All... simply delicious!

The centerpiece featured our Bella Cupcake Couture Olivia Sea Blue
and Olivia Silver/White with individual pies set into each wrapper.

You might say they are "Strong enough for a pie, but Made for a Cupcake". (some fun advertisement humor. Do you recognize the slogan? If so, include in comments below)

Each Pie a' la Bella was placed sweetly on a beautiful Clara French cupcake stand.
White cupcake stands with other pastries were provided by Totally Tabletops.

The whole display and French-inspired wedding set up was absolutely gorgeous! The wedding will be featured in an upcoming article. We will keep you posted.

"Gone Fishin" for the Perfect Wedding

Goodie's Bakeshop shared this darling wedding cupcake and cake wedding display.

They utilized the Bella Cupcake Couture Olivia Chartreuse and Soft Yellow with some creamy buttercream frosting swirled on top of the cupcake. Very elegant! And such a fun, whimsical cake topper. We interpret this as a groom who's gone fishing and found the perfect wife. Very sweet!

Pots and Pins- Flying Blue Angel cupcakes

Come fly away with me!

How cute are these little cupcakes from Pots and Pins? The blogger is pretty darn sweet as well. I got to meet her briefly during my visit with her daughter Lyndsey Fagerlund who was visiting from Utah.

The honor of these cupcakes was of course for the Seattle Seafair Blue Angels; a crowd favorite....even when rainy and dreary; these cupcakes will brighten any day. Cupcake wrappers of course are Bella Cupcake Couture and cupcake from New York Cupcakes. Check out the rest of the blog HERE.
