Love Letters Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

We HEART so many of the details from this party by Shevi from Little Wish Cakes. She styled this table for her husband’s birthday. When Shevi met her husband 15 years ago, were not allowed to date because of their conservative backgrounds. Their only consolation was that they could write love letters to each other. After they got engaged, her husband had to leave for a year to go to another country for work and once again, “love letters” helped them through it. Currently, he is about to embark on another travel adventure and Shevi decided to send him off with the sweetest love letter of all. Sweet treats on the dessert table included cupcakes with love messages written on them, sealed with a kiss sugar cookies, macaroons, and that beautiful cake. The fabulous back drop is made out of paper serviettes scrunched and glued in the shape of a heart on a hessian covered board. Red paper hearts on doilies reminiscent of the Valentine’s Day cards we used to get in grade school were used as dessert tags. We’re bookmarking this for Valentine’s Day! Fantastic. Scroll down for the vendor credits.

    The cupcakes are just plain fondant (RTR) cut into circles that I let dry and then wrote with an edible marker.

    I’d never guess the backdrop was made out of scrunched serviettes. Amazing work!
