Congratulations On Your Wedding, Kathry & Troy - Cookies & Meringue

喜欢这个cameo 槊胶模,很有古典味。。

虽然婚礼已经离我很远了,但是我还是常常会到书摊翻翻结婚杂志,因为实在喜欢白色的华丽,浪漫的点点滴滴。不管是婚纱,花卉,装饰品,餐桌摆设或请柬我都喜欢看。简直有时幻想一下自己是wedding planner ,可以接触许多美丽的事务,真的很棒。。(虽然也幻想有间美丽浪漫的蛋糕店) 我的梦想很多的。。嘻嘻。。

我这两个礼拜都大大忙着,除了不断的工作外也为了同事婚礼的dessert table 筹谋着。 这是第一次被邀请为洋人婚礼的dessert table做甜点,有点儿小紧张, 。最后选了我自己喜欢及简易的两样小甜点,做了装饰和镀上华丽金色素,增添豪华且浪漫气息。
