Gourmet S'mores Bar by Cocoa & Fig

We had the chance to debut our Gourmet S'mores Bar at the Independent Wedding Association's Groom's Night event - and what a success!  Check out their blog for a recap along with highlights and photos of all the participants.

Attendees enjoyed the interactive s'mores dessert option with house-made graham crackers, three different types of Ghiradelli chocolate to choose from, and locally produced marshmallows in raspberry, chocolate, and vanilla bean.  If the only marshmallows you've ever had were the ones that come in a bag, wait until you indulge in a made-from-scratch variety! And we guarantee that when you try our graham crackers, you'll never go back to the blue box again.

We also made ribbon-tied S'mores guest favors so guests could re-create the fun at home.  What a perfect sweet treat to leave your guests with at the end of a fun-filled celebration.  They'll thank you for weeks to come!

Wedding Inspiration Shoot: Library Love

There is something elegantly chic about antique furniture, vintage jewelry, colorfully covered books, old typewriters, and horn-rimmed glasses.  These things were the inspiration behind our most recent photo shoot - Library Love.  Some magnificent Twin Cities wedding vendors came together to create this uber-cute wedding setting including photographer Jeff Loves Jessica, stationer Paperista,  Spruce flower boutique, and Lime Canary vintage rentals.  We couldn't have asked for a nicer team to work with on this one.

Cocoa & Fig designed two cakes - one with a more masculine style of clean lines and chevron stripes and the other in a frilly, feminine style reflecting the ruffles in the bridal gown.  We also made custom tinted French macarons in green, banana pudding layered desserts shooters, lemon meringue tartlets, cake lollipops in cute pale green cups, and toasted coconut cupcakes tied with a little blue ribbon.
