Wedding cupcakes

A couple of weeks ago I got a call from Myrtó. She and her sister Eirini, run an old fashioned-style barber's shop in Nafplio. They cut the hair of the men in our house. Myrtó was in the middle of planning her wedding and wanted to have some cupcakes for their intimate beach gathering after the wedding.

If you've ever been to Karathóna beach you'll know it is a beautiful bay with mountains all around. It's exciting to make the cupcakes for a beach wedding! I popped by the shop and we had a discussion about flavours and numbers. Myrtó is a very laid back person and liked every suggestion!

We decided on triple chocolate and strawberry filled vanilla.

So, last Saturday night we popped by the party. We were supposed to be there taking photos but we ended up staying a while. They had candles and oil lanterns all around and bougainvillea flowers. The weather was perfect, too. It was cool but not cold and after a little while the moon rose over the mountains behind us. It was a starry night, not a cloud in the sky.

I think this is really a wonderful way to have a wedding. It was a lovely place and atmosphere. You can make it as elaborate or as simple as you like. The kids thought it was totally cool having their flip flops on (or off, after about 5 minutes).

Congratulations, George and Myrtó!
