Look what a beautiful box we received last week! I met with Julie the owner of Big City Little Sweets. We connected immediately after I heard about how she also left her big corporate job to pursue something that she truly loves. It was clear how passionate she is about creating these elegant bite-sized desserts and I know she would be a total pleasure to work with. She generously gave me a box of delectable treats to try!
Move over cupcakes. I totally adore these cake lollies! I don't really like things that are too sweet and these were just the perfect level of sweetness. The cake inside was incredibly moist and flavoursome. The thin layer of icing on the outside creating a perfect crunch as you bite. Crazy good. I think these are so perfect for weddings. Eating a cupcake, especially a large one, can be a messy affair. These are such an elegant parcel. I can see guests grabbing some of these and heading back to the dance floor to eat them. Big City Little Sweets also offers mini pies, tarts, macarons, cookies and cupcakes. They can custom design a dessert bar for you. A table filled with these beauties would be an incredible addition to any wedding, birthday or shower.

I am typing this in Malaysia and will be in Hong Kong for Christmas, so no chance of a white Christmas for me. I will make up for it with some white wedding inspiration! There is something so timeless and elegant about a white wedding.
A traditional English wedding cake is a fruitcake. The top layer of the tiered wedding cake is kept for the christening of their first child. Made with plenty of Brandy and sugar, fruitcakes keep for years!

I learned about Creme-Delicious at the Martha Stewart Weddings Bridal Market Party. Sandhya Patangay, a Henna artist with 12 years of experience under her belt, has branched out into cakes. She uses her intricate designs on her cakes and they are a sight to behold. The amount of work and effort that goes into every piece is obvious. They are almost too pretty to eat, but I did taste a few and they were delicious. A display of these would be an impressive dessert table at an event, or a sweet favour to take home.
