August 17, 2010

On August 17th, I did a small catering job and wedding cake for a bride named Shurna.  They met me at the Utah Bridal Expo this year at South Towne.  The event was held at Le Jardin in Sandy.  I have been to this venue about five times now.  For those of you who have never been there, it's a set of greenhouses.  They are full of flowers, stone walkways, and gorgeous arches.  It's a really pretty venue.  My only problem with this venue is that it gets really warm.  It is, after all, a greenhouse.

Le Jardin

Shurna ordered a Romantics Platter which is chocolate covered strawberries, pretzels, butter cookies, and marshmallow bon bons.  She also ordered the Cookie and Brownie Platter which consists of brownies and assorted cookies.  Her colors were pink, gold, and white and she was going for a very elegant theme to the entire wedding.

Le Jardin was about 75-80 in there.  It was hot.  Not a good place for chocolate covered items.  I placed each tray upon another tray filled with ice.  However the chocolate was getting soft no matter what.  I had warned the bride of this previously though.  So there wasn't much to be done.  It was a beautiful reception.

Trays and Set Up

I placed rose petals around the trays and labeled each tray as well
