Pretty in Pink: Part 1

Our client who was throwing a Bat Mitzvah for her daughter at The Royal Conservatory of Music had a vision for a really cool, really pink Sweet Table... but the first quote we got to execute her vision was $17,600...

Have I given you long enough to digest that? Probably not.

Alas, the lovely Laura Long from Daniel et Daniel hooked us up with the supercrazytalented Lisa Phillips from 'Hi Sweetheart' and we set upon creating our very own epic table. And epic it was... so epic, in fact, that this has turned into my first ever 3-part blog post.

Lisa created these adorable Mini Cupcakes with our guest-of-honour's initials in delectable little shortbread cookies.

Laura and her chefs learned how to twist Cotton Candy onto teeny sticks; and I think they learned that trying to make them 'mini' made for a mountain of work... You should've seen them all in the kitchen, with the candy spinners -- it's clearly not as easy as you might think.

Another creation from the genius mind of Lisa Phillips: Mini S'mores Cups!

This photo shows the Pièce-de-Résistance: The 6-layer, Pink Rice Krispies Squares-Cake! Lisa had made a small version for the mock up and the client and I both went bananas when we saw it... we squealed, "Make it bigger! No, BIGGER! It needs to be the centerpiece of the entire table!" We had servers on hand, plating it, just as you would a real cake.
Thank you to Jackson for the downright delectable photos.
