Mmmm. Cupcakes. How can you ever get tired of them? Last night was the fabulous wedding of a lovely friend at Thurman's Mansion, adjacent to the Salt Lick. A delcious BBQ dinner was had by all! (See the Salt Lick post from a few days back.)
Instead of having a traditional cake, the bride & groom went for a charming tier of Sugar Mama's cupcakes! We had 4 chocolate varieties, from bottom to top in the photo:
-- the James Brown, a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting
-- the Black and Tan, a Guinness cupcake with Bailey's Irish cream cheese frosting
-- German Chocolate, chocolate cake with pecan, coconut & caramel frosting (also the bride's favorite, and this was the top-tier topper)
-- the Peanut Butter Cup, a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter chips, and pb buttercream frosting
The two vegans in attendance were also extremely pleased with the mint chocolate and ginger lemon cupcakes. Sugar Mama's came out and set up everything -- thank you!!!! -- and now I have to return the cupcake stand to them. Maybe I should pick up something while I am there...
