Lily's Bat Mitzvah

What do you do for a girl who loves chocolate and candy? Give her an awesome candy & dessert buffet for her Bat Mitzvah! We were so excited to be a part of Lily's big celebration! The Westin Edina was the perfect venue for such a fun party, and Amy Zaroff Events & Design executed the vision perfectly - which included a dance floor with a custom logo, custom candy boxes, as well as an colorful backdrop for the dessert buffet.  Cocoa & Fig provided an array of desserts, all with touches of bright pink, purple, and lime green to go with the theme of course! Desserts included; cake lollipops, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate covered pretzel sticks, dessert shooters, miniature cupcakes, and chocolate covered rice krispie treats.


Congratulations Lily!

Baby It's Cold Outside!

 Abbey & Mike's wedding day was a perfect way to encapsulate all that is wonderful about winter. From fur shawls and carriage rides, to hot chocolate bars and delicious desserts! Cocoa & Fig provided a miniature dessert table and cake for the big day.  The desserts tied in with the wintery theme with hints of silver and fruit tarlets topped with blackberries and blueberries.  Other dessert offerings included French macarons, mini apple pies, tiramisu dessert shooters, dark chocolate dessert shooters, cake lollipops, and mini cupcakes. The wedding cake had a rustic, spackled buttercream exterior, garnished with fresh succulents and an adorable pair of Mr. and Mrs. lovebirds.

A Winter Wonderland

We were lucky enough to be invited to do a photoshoot at the incredible Ice Castle at the Mall of America.  The gorgeous ice formations provided the perfect background for our wintery dessert table. The centerpiece of the dessert table was a beautiful white and silver fondant decorated cake, topped with a delicate gumpaste flower.  The miniature dessert offerings included French macarons, heart-shaped raspberry handpies, Russian tea cakes, key lime dessert shooters, coconut mini cupcakes, and mini chocolate chunk cookies. 


Thank you to all of the awesome vendors who participated! It was certainly a very fun and icy day!

Dreaming of Summer: Dessert Table & Flowers

  As we brave the sub-zero temperatures that a Minnesota winter inevitably brings, we find ourselves dreaming of summer.  One wedding that practically screams warmth and sunshine is Annie and Michael's.  The couple held their ceremony and reception at the gorgeous Semple Mansion, Annie's mom is a floral designer, and provided all of the gorgeous flowers for the big day.  Cocoa & Fig provided a delicious dessert table, which included French macarons, dessert shooters, mini cupcakes, peanut butter sandwich cookies, fresh fruit tartlets, and a centerpiece cake garnished with a fresh succulent.



 We hope these gorgeous pictures of Annie and Michael's wedding day helped to warm you up a bit!
