This Groom's Cake was requested as a surprise at the couple's reception. They had a beautiful wedding in Argentina and had come home to celebrate with friends and family. This was my first fish cake and let's just say, I learned A LOT more about trout than I thought I would ever know :)
Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the Bride requested mini desserts.
In the first tray:
-Berries and cream in candy cups
-Key lime mini cupcakes with key lime filling and cream cheese frosting
- Coconut and pineapple cheesecakes with ginger thin and coconut crust,a dollop of coconut cream on top, and dried pineapple pieces.
-Berries and cream in candy cups - again
-Spiced apples in phyllo cups with candied walnuts
- Homemade puff pastry with goat cheese and quince paste.
Finally, we have a repeat of the cheesecake, mini cupcakes, spiced apples and cream and berries to fill out the platter
Next time I will make more candy cups and cream. They were gone in an instant. I sent Matt to get the balance and the tray was empty before he made it back to the dessert table.
This was a fun project. I really enjoyed the variety.
Congrats again to the beautiful couple!
