Another happy customer!

"I really enjoyed working with the women at Simply Sweet. They truly helped make my wedding day beautiful and delicious. I was surprised how much effort they took to make my wedding day the way I wanted it. I really appreciated how friendly and efficient they were at the same time. The food looked great all night, and despite having so many fingers (guests!) eating the desserts so fast, the plates were kept full. Guests at our wedding are still raving about the great desserts and beautiful candy table!"

As you is the recipe for the icing we use on cini minis. Enjoy!

1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 cube butter (NO margarine allowed - ever!)
1 bag powdered sugar

Mix on LOW til incorporated. (will be crumbly) Add 1 T pure vanilla (no fake extract!) and mix on low while adding hot water or warm milk by the teaspoonful until icing is at desired consistency. (We use hot water - it keeps the icing smooth and soft. Adding cold water can make butter and cream cheese firm again and your icing will be lumpy.) Mixing on low keeps air bubbles out of the icing so it stays smooth. Don't whip it! I usually turn the Kitchen Aid on low and walk away for 15 mins or so while it mixes. Keep in refrigerator in an airtight container.

Mmmmm...... enjoy!

La Caille Bridal Show

The show at LA CAILLE was wonderful! Again, it was so fun to see so many of you there, and meet so many new, darling brides. (OK, and grooms, too) It was a great day and we look forward to working these great upcoming events. The booth...candy table on left, main dessert buffet middle, info table & the fabulous popcorn tree on right. (hey, it isn't easy to smash all of this into an 8 foot space. But we did it!)

The ever popular candy table. The black & white with apple green and fuschia was eye popping and fun!

Mini wedding cakes....

Mini cupcakes....

Peanut butter blossoms....

And our most popular favor...homemade fortune cookies!

And new at this show...BROWNIE POPS!

The La Caille Show was a great success - and great fun. Just remember...the colors we use at the show(s) are just our choice of the moment. We customize each dessert buffet to YOUR preferences. Any color, any menu - it's all designed just for you! So use your imagination and let us create the colorful and delicious display to bring the WOW factor to your party!

See you next time!

We enjoyed meeting so many of you over the weekend at the Grand America Bridal Show.

Our display table was done in black and white with apple green accents. The array of desserts
featured carrot spice cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (of course!), our famous almond sugar cookies, vanilla petit fours, peanut butter blossoms, red velvet cake pops, fortune cookies, and our newest item - mini wedding cakes!

The candy table is always a favorite...but we featured a popcorn tree as well, and it was a hit! We also introduced our "cake to go" boxes with our exisiting favor boxes. All such fun, exciting additions to your 2010 wedding!

Our original cake stand/cake display is always a highlight of every event...

And introducing DEVIN DIAL...the most amazing floral designer you will find. His ideas are fresh and fun - and he is just a pleasure to work with. If you're looking for an incredible floral designer - and an all around great person - contact Devin at or 801.870.8204
