Wedding Favors

My kitchen has once again been filled with the sweet smelling
aromas of caramelised sugar & fluffy meringues...


You may remember my home baked Christmas gifts last year - Vanilla & Coffee 
Meringues together with small jars of Salted Butter Caramel Sauce...



A work collegue of my husband's was so impressed ~
she asked me to bake them for her bonbonnieres.



I've been making the paper bags with little windows, baking & labelling
the meringues. Cooking the caramel sauce to a lovely rich copper colour
& bottling it into elegant square jars decorated with ribbons & bows.





Baskets of luscious meringues ready for packaging... Each bag held two 
large meringues, one coffee & one vanilla. We decided to add a little 
damask pattern to the label to give the bags a touch of wedding formality... 

For an intimate Autumn wedding of forty guests they made a 
unique wedding favor to take home... especially for those 
with a sweet tooth!

    p.s. I'm in Melbourne at the moment and have found an amazing antique warehouse in Glen Waverley, at 11a Aristoc Road, just off Waverley Road. It's well worth a visit!! x

  2. Just gorgeous, Kerry! What lovely attention to detail!! Where did you find those wonderful little jars? They are delightful!

    I can sure see why someone requested your meringues!! They look amazing!
    I am struggling with favors for our daughter's wedding I purchased some little white boxes with "G" monogram stickers, but can't decide what goodies to put inside! I was thinking some little Godiva treats if they make them small!!
    We'll see.

    Lovely ideas!
    Have a joyful week, and thanks for sharing!
