I won't talk about 'the incident' in which I drove to every supermarket in my area for those darn jumbo marshmallows, or that I LITERALLY was on sitting Indian style on the floors of TARGET emptying those shelves looking for those darn jumbo marshmallows. As I was about to have a heart attack because it was 3 days before my wedding ( SLACKER- YES!), this angel/sales associate 'Marvin' found them in the back storage room.
Heart Sugar Cubes-
Sugar cubes ( found in your local supermarket)
Honey and toothpick
mini heart sprinkles
First I used the edible marker method- CRAPPY! The ink bleeds onto the sugar cube so my hearts do not look like hearts, more like a disfigured C's. I've heard of people using ketchup but I AM NOT using ketchup on sugar cubes for my guests.
1. With a toothpick grab some honey and place it on the sugar cube.
2. Stick a heart sprinkle on the honey. Press lightly.
3. Leave alone for 1 minute ( I am extra cautious). Done!
To help our guests with how it works, we made steps:
1. Pick a flavor... 2. Brew it! 3. TOP IT OFF!
Thanks JY for taking photos of my beloved sweat and tears! These are SERIOUSLY THE ONLY PHOTOS I HAVE of the Beverage Bar. So sad but very grateful!
Because I love making signage so much, I made a toppings sign.
.. and that is how our KickAss Hot Beverage Bar came to be.
When thinking of ideas for your wedding, it doesn't matter what you do as long as it makes you happy!!!! You are the bride, do what YOU WANT! Who cares about theme or colors. If you want a dessert bar, DO IT. If you don't care for it, then DON'T.
For me, I didn't care if it stuck to a theme or not, all I cared about is 'does this represent a part of us'.
Include items/things you want but don't do something just because it is the thing to do.
