Moroccan Wedding

What a gorgeous, cool and exotic wedding. Violet, my sweet client, married David on 11.11.11.  The only thing more memorable than their wedding date was their spectacular venue; the Hotel Figueroa in Los Angeles.  This cool boutique hotel is a Moroccan fantasy.  Dark, moody and romantic, it had all the glam and drama any bride could hope for.  And Violet made my job of setting up her dessert buffet that much easier by supplying 90% of the sweets herself from the fabulous Porto's Bakery.  Oh, Sugar! did the table design, cake pops and of course, sugar cookies.  Take a look at these gorgeous photos generously shared by Ben Gibbs of Ben Gibbs Photography.  Enjoy!

The set up.

I love a bride who's willing to have a little fun. Violet wanted to incorporate some meaningful touches about  the groom and herself into the table, which we accomplished through our sugar cookies.  There was a large platter of cookies with the Hand of Fatima, tying in their Moroccan theme. And for the bride, Violet requested some Hello Kitty cookies, her signature red bow changed to purple to coordinate with her color scheme. 

The bride approves.

And for the groom, we did a plate full of KISS cookies.  No, not romantic, lovey-dovey XOXO cookies.  KISS as in the glam rock band.  This is when I fell in love with Violet.  I think the more a wedding reflects the couple's personality the better.  And I'd say mission accomplished because as I was setting up, the bride's good friend  took one look at the cookies and laughed, "That's SO Violet!"

You may now KISS the bride.

And now for a behind the scene laugh.  The KISS face cookies were so labor intensive I only made two of each.  I created two dozen more of these KISS logo cookies with a cool ombre effect using sanding sugar. The bride saw the cookies and loved them.  The groom saw them and told the bride she'd jumped the shark and maybe we needed to reel it in a little bit on the dessert table.  Violet sweetly let me know to go ahead and put the face cookies on the table, but they'd be taking the rest of the KISS cookies "to go."  No offense taken!

Oh, Sugar's cake pops.

Toffee coated double chocolate cake pops.

Gorgeous jewel toned French macarons.

The rest of these decadent confections come from Porto's Bakery and are some of the most gorgeous  delights I've ever laid my eyes on.  Stunning!

Congrats again Violet and David!

Happy Thanksgiving

Here's a collection of Thanksgiving and autumn themed cookies we did for the winners bidders on an Oh, Sugar! certificate for a charity auction.  Indian corn, pumpkins, acorns and turkeys and that traditional autumn color palette. Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy!
