We just had our busiest New Year's Eve to date! We first catered to a beautiful wedding at the Clear Water Bay Golf Club. Given that it was a New Year's Eve wedding we made everything white and silver themed complete with white topping cupcakes (oreo, red velvet, vanilla, coconut for flavors) and additional silver decorations such as white and silver initial embossed plaques, silver stars and silver ornaments.
We also catered to a few spectacular New Year's Eve events. In particular a fun one to put together was for GOD, where we sent over hundreds of mini cupcakes, pastries and macarons!
As many of you know, our cupcake towers are hugely popular and just these past few days we sent out two that I'd like to share with you. The first cupcake tower we did for an intimate wedding at the Peninsula Garden Suite. We made a simple cupcake tower out of the bride's two favorite flavors: Lemon and salty caramel. We also put together a dark chocolate cake topper with a simple white fondant and yellow ribbon coating. Our second cupcake tower highlighted a beautiful candy bar at the Bethanie. To match the bride's pink and yellow theme, we placed these strawberry and vanilla cupcakes in alternating layers and also decorated each cupcake with a pink and yellow "K W" plaque as well.
Since we're on the subject of cupcakes, it's also been fun to know that even though Christmas has come and gone, we at Sift have still been busy packaging gifts for our Clients. Here, we placed a big order of cupcakes in our cupcake boxes, all ribbon tied, to give away to different departments of the Four Seasons Hotel.
Every week, we field many requests for baby showers and as we prepare for the new year, I thought I'd show you these designs that we're adding to our cookie collection. We did them all in pale blue and white but certainly they can be done in any color of your desire. All cut out of our famous crumbly shortbread cookies and decorated with royal icing. They're freshly baked, hand piped and can be individually wrapped. They're the ultimate baby shower takeaway gift!
