A Country Love Story

I am honored to introduce to you a beautiful couple who share a love of friends, family, and wide open spaces of the most majestic countryside.  I was thrilled to be asked to design bridal shower cupcakes that would be a surprise for this lovely lady from her family. 

The bridal shower was held at a gorgeous, quaint restaurant in a beautiful country town making the setting for this special occasion simply divine!  The Cafe Company of Owensville, MO is a stunning venue with Italian countryside touches that add a distinct warmth and coziness......perfect for bridal shower receptions.

The cupcakes were created around the color scheme of this couples' wedding, deep royal purples and delicious buttery yellows.  White was the accent color used while the rich, deep purple represented the dominating color throughout the fondant decorations and paper wrappers enveloping each cupcake creation.  

Showing her prize cattle is a passion for this country bride and so a design incorporating her elegant yet playful cowgirl side was a must!  ...hence the cowgirl boot embossed with an intricate scroll design overlay on the boot shaft.  To add another layer of sophistication, a small, white lily (her favorite flower) was incorporated next to the boot.  The second cupcake design included an elegant monogram "W" with a delicate flower motif in white fondant.  The deep purple disk of fondant forming the base of this monogram was embossed to give this a rustic or imperfect feel, adding a touch of country and whimsy.  Surrounding the disk is a dainty white flower with warm, buttery yellow edible pearls. So Heavenly!

For the flavors of these cupcakes we incorporated the brides, red velvet cake with delicious cream cheese frosting.  A fantastic combination for an amazing bride-to-be!  Congratulations Whitney and Shawn on your upcoming wedding!

"Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, Love gives us a fairy tale."
