Wedding cupcakes: A garden of flowers

Kate and John reached out to me late last spring for their upcoming wedding in the Finger Lakes region. They were planning their wedding at Toro Run winery overlooking Cayuga Lake.

With this cupcake, I thee wed …

I have made many cakes and cupcakes for many different occasions, but I just had to share this specific occasion with you!

A young man ordered a dozen cupcakes to be delivered to a bed and breakfast. He was quite specific about the date and time, and then he told me about his plan. His girlfriend had told him that when he proposed to her, she wanted to have a delicious cupcake to eat right at that moment.

Well, he found me, I made those delicious cupcakes, and brought them to the bed and breakfast before the couple arrived.

This past weekend, on a lakeside dock in the Finger Lakes of New York, an innkeeper arranged cupcakes on a cake stand, the young man proposed to his girlfriend, and a young couple enjoyed the start of a life together.

Ah, sweet.
