A Spring Wedding with Vintage Flair

With wedding season in full swing and the warm weather upon us, this colorful vintage wedding shoot has us wanting to work outside today!  Yellow, teal, red, and pink add pops of color among wooden tables and the outdoor setting.

Cocoa & Fig created a fun variety of cakes and desserts for this shoot including raspberry French macarons, chocolate dipped rice krispie treats, cake lollipops, a rustic coconut cake, a ribbon style buttercream cake, and strawberry parfaits in old soda fountain glasses.  Using accents like vintage style cake stands, lace doilies, 'antique' hardcover books, an old typewriter, and flowers placed in a galvanized tin can, the dessert display was balanced beautifully.

Thanks to all the fabulous vendors that helped make this shoot amazing!

4 Tier Wedding Cake with Jewels and Skulls for Sean and Ben

With such a demand for our gorgeous dessert tables, it's rare that we get an opportunity to design and create a large cake for a reception.  So imagine our delights when Sean and Ben came to us for their wedding cake.  Their formal reception at The Landmark Center in St Paul was the perfect backdrop for this 4 tier stunner, enrobed in white fondant and adorned with white, black, red and gold sugar jewels.  We also included little silver skulls on the cake that matched the cufflinks worn by Sean.

A reception would not be complete without a Cocoa & Fig dessert table!  Mini desserts were set up towards the end of the evening and included Black Velvet Cake Lollipops, Dark Chocolate Dessert Shooters, Very Berry Dessert Shooters and White Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispie Treats.

And check out the stunning florals by Spruce!  All photos compliments of the amazing folks at Studio 306.
