Today's post is rather special. I'm not going to be sharing a recipe or a painting that I've done. Instead, I'm going to share with you one of the most precious memories of my lifetime - my sister's wedding.

From left to right, on the dessert table is - cupcake tower with cake topper, gulab jamun and chumchum (Pakistani/Indian sweets), coconut halwa (or sweet), chocolate bride and groom cake pops, mini cheesecake bites in three flavors, kalakun (another Indian sweet), paan leaves and sweet masala, and not visible in the picture is a traditional mouth freshener mix called sawf. The dessert table was a fabulous success.

The cupcake tower consisted of alternating layers of chocolate and french vanilla cupcakes filled with a decadent french vanilla whipped cream. They were frosted in a rose shape with butter cream icing and finished off with a touch of pearls and a beautiful sugar flower. The finished cupcakes looked like they came straight out of a fairytale - maybe Tangled. And yes, I also made the actual cupcake tower myself with some tulle, construction paper, ribbon, and a friend's deft hand in tying bows.

From start to finish, creating this dessert table for my sister was a bucketful of unforgettable memories. I still remember the assembly line of girls coring cupcakes, filling them, and waiting to add finishing touches as I iced them. I still remember seeing my sister's face as she walked towards her stage and her surprise, laughter, and appreciation during the entire occasion. Congratulations to my lovely sister and wonderful brother-in-law once more.
I hope you enjoyed this little behind the scenes look at the dessert table of my sister's wedding. :)
