The Road to Mrs. – My Adventures in Wedding Cake Tasting

Cake, Cake, Cake! Triple B's resident bride-to-be Nicole shares her adventures in wedding cake tastings.

Cake tasting has definitely been a highlight of the wedding planning process. Yes, I had committed to losing 10-15 pounds prior to my wedding in four short months, but this was something that had to be done. For the greater good, I sampled 13 delicious flavors of cake and frosting and did it guilt-free. With Leonard out of town, I enlisted the help of my grandmother and MOH, Heather. They too, were happy to indulge. [Read more…]

Here are a few of Triple B’s faves at the moment: [Read more…]

You Oughta Know: Sydney’s Sweets (SPONSORED POST)

Sydney turned her passion into profit with Sydney's Sweets!

Admit it: Either you, your sorority sister or co-worker is always on the hunt for a new bakery for someone’s bridal shower, wedding or anniversary celebration. And who couldn’t benefit from having another fab cupcake resource on their radar? For Triple B’s Cupcakes, Cocktails & Conversation in Harlem last month, the yummy cupcakes were provided by Sydney’s Sweets and I couldn’t have been more pleased. The red velvet with cream cheese frosting were my favorite but Sydney’s Sweets also has more creative flavor options like peanut butter and jelly, pina colada and caramel white chocolate. There are even vegan and gluten-free varieties available by special order. [Read more…]

How to Save Money on Your Wedding Catering

I apologize for the gaps in posts recently. Although I’m no longer wedding planning, merging my 30+ years of life with Mr. TK’s is time-consuming. Wedding planning is light stuff compared to some of the decisions we’re currently making. But, you are likely coming to this site because you’re still in the thick of planning your own nuptials. Don’t worry, I’m not going to abandon you. In fact, I am eager to share even more of my knowledge now that I’ve said “I Do.” Below are ten ways you can trim your wedding catering expenses. Remember, food and beverage costs will eat up most of your budget so this is valuable information.

Whimsical Wedding Cakes – Creme Delicious

The couple had a traditional white multi-tier cake but mid-way through the reception guests were treated to individual cakes similar to those above. And then at the Martha Stewart Weddings soriee last fall, I got to see more of Creme’s edible artistry upclose. Sweet! [Read more…]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week: Cake Pop Escort Cards

Pretty freakin' adorable, right?

This week’s pick is more if an idea than a “thing”. Right now I’m just smitten with using cake pops as escort cards. I know you’re thinking the inclusion of cake pops at weddings isn’t exactly new. And you’re right. But the novel idea as using them as a unique way to demonstrate your escort cards is kinda new…and yummy, too! Interested in using your own version of the above at your next big function can be as simple or as intricate you want. I’ve seen metallic cake pops, cake pops in a gazillion flavors, cake pops that look like they’re wearing a wedding gown and tuxedo — the list continues. Once your cake pop design(s) are finalized, head to Michael’s or your local craft store for the makings of your escort cards that will either be fixated to each cake pop itself or the stick. Have fun with color and shapes. The end result are your guests nibbling on a sweet treat while they find their seats and get prepared to par-tay!
