The Cuppa For Cansa -Part 2 { The Setup and Food }

This Cuppa for Cansa was a real labour of love for me. Like I said in my previous post, it started as a way to celebrate Madame Macaron turning 2, but it evolved into so much more.

By Friday night all the goodie bags had been packed. { My sister Saiyuri very generously paid to have the Cuppa For Cansa artwork, that was contributed by Fathima of Happiness Is, printed on the bags.} I had delegated everyone’s duties for the next day, all my lists were printed and I was 90% ready. The whole week had been rainy and overcast and i quietly prayed for the weather to clear up.

Well, my prayers were answered. It rained for most of Saturday morning as I ran around trying to get all the last minute things done, but at around 11:30am the skies cleared and the sun came out. To me it was a good sign that we were going to have a wonderful afternoon.

Setting up was a bit of a mad rush and thank goodness for Niresha and Verushka who helped me set out the cupcakes, donated by Smith’s Bakeshop, and the goodie bags for each lady, while I set up all the wonderful prizes up for auction and raffle.

My wonderfully amazing husband was also on hand as my photographer for the day.

Nicky, from Polkadots and Jellytots, donated her talent to the event to set up the space. In all honesty, Nicky is one of the most innovative event planners I have had the pleasure of working with and I was very lucky to have had there.

I provided the cake, a chocolate sponge with dark chocolate ganache and fresh berries.I’ve named it my Strawbaby ChocChoc Cake.I also made the cakepops, mini cupcakes and macarons filled with white chocolate. Nicky provided the sweets in the jars and the red velvet cupcakes were from Parushinee of My Go 2 Girl.The savoury yummies were provided by Boutique Boulangerie. Kirti was kind enough to sponsor the mini quiches and the balance was sponsored by Jasmin Nights Software Solutions ( aka my husband 🙂 ). All the beverages were provided by Hashtag.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
