What was I doing this weekend? Baking. And baking. Collapsing into a puddle of exhaustion. And then more baking. Spilled Milk was catering a bridal show at the Maison Biltmore in Adams Morgan – we did an all-dessert spread for the brides to be, which meant that I was up to my ears in mini cupcakes, whoopie pies, lime bars, and cherry ginger hand pies. And don’t forget the hazelnut and peanut butter brownie truffles we set out as favors.
The event was lovely. Amelia Irene, who owns a custom design business, arranged the event to showcase her beautiful wedding invitation designs, which I could have spent several hours pouring over (I love stationary. In another life I’d be a graphic designer). And the Biltmore is a great venue – the historic house is decked out in elegant, unique decor that would make an awesome space for a wedding reception. Who knew that it was right in my neighborhood?
Here are some pictures from the event. I’m a little amazed that, after the hours it took to get everything together, all my hard work fit onto a table. It seems like it should take up more space or something – like those hours of work should fill the whole room.
