A Petites Bouchees creation! :) This issue mentions how a cupcake wedding cake can be a cost-effective yet a delicious (and beautiful) alternative to the traditional wedding cake.


Also in this issue, a couple whose wedding I made the above macaron favors for were also featured. The bride, Amy, was absolutely stunning in a gorgeous Monique Lhullier gown and as I found out upon reading the article she was also wearing a pair of limited edition Christian Louboutin shoes! The groom himself looked vey dapper in his dark suit.

Also Courtney Spencer, who writes the blog Little White Book – a fabulous resource for brides-to-be, is spotlighted in the Who Knew section. Courtney, who I met in this year’s Bridal show, started her own event planning business, Merriment, earlier this year.

Oh, the giveaway…

I shall be giving away a pack of 50 filigree  cupcake wrappers, your choice of chocolate brown or white. A sample of the chocolate brown is shown below.


I need help determining how to pack my flavors for Broad Appetit. I will be packing macaron flavors in packs of two. The flavors will be chocolate with espresso buttercream, vanilla with vanilla buttercream, hazelnut with salted caramel, passion fruit milk chocolate ganache, pistachio with bittersweet chocolate ganache. The cupcakes will also be packaged in boxes of two. Flavors will be: chocolate-chocolate glaze, vanilla with vanilla rum buttercream, carrot cupcake with cream cheese frosting and maybe red velvet cupcake.

So to enter the giveaway, if you were theoretically buying my macarons and cupcakes, what two flavors would you want to eat for macarons and cupcakes? And don’t say all ! ;) I’m trying to see what percentage of folks who like chocolate, hates vanilla or vice-versa – and also see how popular passion fruit milk chocolate is.

Comments will be accepted until May 30th 2009. I will ship worldwide! The winner, picked by a random number generator, will be announced June 6th.
