It has all been very quiet at Comfort & Joy HQ hasn't it?! A horribly extended bout of building work has meant I have been really limited in terms of kitchen time - and space. But everything is finally finished and actually, the hiatus proved quite useful for getting a few new recipes off the ground.
I also tried out a new recipe for Chocolate Orange Brownie Bites on friends who came over for an impromptu afternoon tea. I often find brownies just that little bit too rich, but the zing of the orange is a divine contrast to the chocolate and the gooey middle tastes absolutely velvety. We ate many more than we should (all in the name of research you understand.)

Kim set up an amazing candy station, an idea that I've seen on American wedding blogs but not over here...until now! Sugary favourites such as coconut ice and strawberry bon bons nestled into little vintage cut glass bowls and sugared almonds in organza bags tied with ribbons tempted all of the guests!
It was great to be involved with such a great day, and it's got me completely in the mood for the start of wedding season!

I started the day with a special birthday delivery this morning. There were two mixed boxes of vanilla cupcakes topped with fondant and handwritten message or buttercream and chocolate cupcakes iced with a really wicked chocolate buttercream frosting.
Happy birthday Lucy!

Cosmo Bride suggested our cupcakes to fit with a decandent Art Deco themed wedding. Swirls of buttercream icing topped with a single gold cupid and the classic rose cupcake make a really dramatic impact alongside the vintage china and pearls.

Welcome to the Comfort & Joy Cakery blog! We make delicious decadent cupcakes for weddings and special occasions...or for those moments when only a bit of glittery, sponge based indulgence will do!
I'll be uploading images here for an online portfolio for clients as well as adding updates on the latest news from Comfort & Joy HQ.
