As a Wisconsin girl, I always considered food on a stick a novelty reserved for daring diners at the annual State Fair. Gems like cheesecake, deep fried butter, chocolate covered bacon and deep fried PB & J are just a few of the things fair goers could enjoy skewered on a stick this past summer.

Thankfully, the wedding industry has taken on this “food on a stick” popularity with a bit more class and artistry. Cake pops, cakes on a stick, are popping up in bakeries and weddings everywhere. Read more »

Signature Cocktail: Margarita with Blue Curaçao

Posted on August 29th, 2011 by annalemberger

The Mix: Our blog series on everything from signature cocktails to DJ playlists. 

This striking blue-green cocktail will add a punch of color and fun to your reception alcohol drink selections. While bartenders refer to this cocktail as a blue margarita, the name is up to you!  Imagine sipping a Blue Paradise while doing the conga line at your luau-themed wedding. A bright colored cocktail also looks stunning in elegant martini glasses against the simplicity of a black and white wedding. The blue margarita is an excellent choice, both for aesthetics and taste.

  2. 2:1 (tequila: curacao)
  3. Lime juice (a healthy dose, a little less than an ounce.)

A while back, I was discussing wedding dessert menus with some Facebook friends, and pies were suggested in place of wedding cakes. A distant cousin, Jennifer, says, “I think if I ever get married, I’m going to have wedding cupcakes…”

Wedding cupcakes have actually become fairly common in recent years. And, I think a cupcake bar would be really cute in place of the traditional wedding cake. With a cupcake bar, you could offer several different flavors of both cake and frosting. The cakes can be arranged in tiers with a traditional wedding cake topper on the top tier. Read more »
