Gorgeous Dessert Table for Rachel and Justin's Wedding

Rachel and Justin had an elegantly gorgeous wedding with reception to follow at Oak Ridge Country Club.  The amazingly talented team over at Amy Zaroff Event + Design worked wonders with the white, slate gray and pale purple color scheme - the wedding just radiated with French elegance.  And the luscious florals by Sadie's Couture Floral are breathtaking.  I especially love the giant baby's breath arrangements.

We designed a Custom Miniature Dessert Table for the reception and flavors included: Vanilla Cake Lollipops and Chocolate Cake Lollipops, Mini Crème Brulee with Caramelized Sugar, Mini Streusel Topped Fruit Pies, Lavender and Salted Caramel  French Macarons, Valrhona Chocolate Bouchons, Black Velvet Mini Cupcakes with Lavender Cream Cheese Icing & Mini Eclairs!

These awesome photos were taken taken by Erin Johnson Photography.  Be sure to check out the video at the bottom of the post by Capture Studios.

Custom Film Reel Cake

Cocoa & Fig was asked to design a custom cake that looked like a classic film reel - we think it turned out pretty awesome!  The "film" was done in black fondant with white square pieces, and the "reel" was done in red fondant.  It was finished off with an inscription on top that mimicked the old, glitzy signs with movie titles or stars' names in lights. So classic and fun!

Minneapolis Wedding Cake and Dessert Table: Sarah and Dennis

With a fun color scheme of navy blue, green, and orange, we knew that Dennis and Sarah's wedding at Five Event Center was going to be a festive celebration.  And with photographer Cadence Cornileus behind the camera, all of the beautiful details and sweet moments were sure to be captured.

The dessert table featured a two tier cake with the queen Anne's lace design from their invitation along with a great assortment of mini desserts including Dark Chocolate and Southern Banana Pudding Dessert Shooters, Peanut Butter Cake Lollipops, Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies, Lemon Raspberry Mini Cupcakes, and Fresh Fruit Tartlets.  Also displayed was an adorable figurine that mimicked the couple perfectly.  Congrats Sarah and Dennis!

Autumn Leaf Cake

Cocoa & Fig designed this elegant, two-tier cake with autumn leaves for Marla and Brett's wedding at Five Event Center.  Each leaf is hand-cut fondant placed on fondant iced tiers, and the base is trimmed in a sage green ribbon.  The clean yet festive almond cake with coffee icing was a beautiful addition to their reception!

Minneapolis Wedding Inspiration Shoot: Vintage Wedding in the Woods

Autumn in Minnesota is the perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding with the natural color scheme of warm, golden brown tones and hints of red and yellow.  This was the inspiration behind a photo shoot we did with some outstanding Twin Cities wedding vendors to create the beautiful setting of a vintage wedding in the woods (woods being the popular Woods Chapel in Orono, MN).

Cocoa & Fig desserts included Apple Galette, a 3-layer exposed Pumpkin Cake, Carrot Cake Cookie Sandwiches, Blueberry Pie, Vanilla Cheesecake with Cranberry Compote, and Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

See more images from the stunning shoot on Jessica Smith Photography's blog, Jennifer A Photography's blog, and Minnesota Bride Magazine's blog.
