Something Blue

On May 6th I will be marrying the talented young man who photographs my food for this blog (I get very good rates), and yesterday was my very own bridal shower.  Since I'm quite partial to Suzy Sweet Tooth sweets, we decided to use Suzy for my food.  I did a dessert bar with confections in the spring blues we are using in our wedding.  We had chocolate chip brownies, CocoNilla cupcakes, chocolate blossom cupcakes, chocolate covered pretzels and Oreos, mini chocolate crystal cupcakes, and a new recipe: mini Lemon Coconut bundt cakes.

The Lemon Coconut bundts seemed to be the hit of the shower.  Along with the chocolate covered pretzels, which always go fast, they seemed to be nibbled up first.  And the ladies seemed to be unanimous that those were the favorite.  They are a tiny cake made with coconut milk, vanilla, lemon zest, and fresh lemon juice.  And they are topped with a sweet but tangy glaze of confectioner's sugar and more lemon juice and zest.  Who wouldn't love that?

I am excited to do more desserts bars like this for bridal showers, baby showers, or parties.  It looks like I may do one for a wedding in August.  Time to start brainstorming...

Another Busy Stretch

I haven't been blogging much lately for a few reasons.  I have had a lot of orders lately, which is really great.  But it also means I spend more time baking for the orders, and less time creating new recipes and experimenting.  I also have an upcoming move, wedding, and honeymoon, all of which are taking up a lot of my spare time.  But there are a few notable things to mention for any customers/fans of Suzy Sweet Tooth.

First off, if you "like" my Suzy Sweet Tooth page on Facebook, you can get a 20% coupon for your next order!  It's good for any regular priced order, from a batch of chocolate covered pretzels to dozens of cupcakes.  If you haven't done it yet, there is a link on the right side of this page that will take you there.  

Like I said earlier, this is a pretty busy stretch for me in the next month or so.  Here are the dates in April/May that I will be available to make custom orders.  The dates in pink I am booked, moving, or busy gettin' hitched, but the dates in white are good to go!  Please contact me by phone or via email to order whatever confections you have in mind for the white days.

Last but not least, here are some fun (albeit pixel-y) pictures of some recent orders I've had.  Top to bottom they are: vanilla/chocolate cupcakes with gumballs, chocolate/cream cheese cupcakes with semisweet ganache and nonpareils, a carrot cake with walnuts and candy eggs, and a bag of birthday cake pops.  Yum!
