The New Cupcake in Town

So of course you know here at Colette's we already LOVE cupcakes, when the cake goddesses are making them who wouldn't?! But you may not know about our newest love affair with these cup sized cakes; we are mad about the newest food trend of savory cupcakes, Think more then actual cake and imagine lasagna made with fresh pasta, marinara, basil, Italian sausage, and fresh ricotta all in the adorable size of a cupcake! 

For breakfast imagine a perfectly portioned quiche inspired cupcake with a butter flaky crust and light fluffy eggs all in the adorable packaging of a cupcake!
Or try another classic comfort food and have our gourmet meatloaf "frosted" with our garlic thyme mashed potatoes.
Savory " Cupcakes" are perfect for a hearty appetizer or with your main course.
Either way were that much closer to our dream of eating a cupcake at every meal...

To get some of these tasty little treats at your next event call Dario and he'll help you out.

Let Them Eat Cake!

A wonderful theme for your wedding, bridal shower, or even a birthday party! Is the once young queen of France, Marie Antoinette.  Marie was the poster child for French high society during the 18th century; her rein coincided with the French Rococo movement.  A style that was known for flowery femininity, elaborate design, and light pastel colors. It was a time of decadence and beauty for the wealthy.  So in true French High Society Style, channel Marie and indulge yourself and your guests with a little help from Colette’s.

Transform your space into a luxurious Parisian Château ala Marie Antoinette, by choosing a soft pastel color scheme but don’t feel limited to two or three colors embrace the indulgence of the era with an array of delicate hues.  

This love seat from FOUND vintage rentals is the perfect accompaniment to your party.
And to truly capture the theme try incorporating some fun French food, and serving the traditional 5 course meal. We created this menu with a few of our favorites

Brie Boucle

With apricot on toast

Chilled Parsnip Soup

Herb Roasted Hen

With Glazed Haricots Vert

Formage plate

Apple Tartine
Marie Antoinette was also infamous for saying “Let Them Eat Cake” so how could we not incorporate a lavish Dessert Bar! With French macaroons and petites as far as the eye can see you and your guests will be reliving the lavish lifestyle of Marie and her court. All of these delightful little desserts not only taste great, but are also available in a variety of colors to match any event you have.  And of course you can’t forget the “cake” like these adorable cupcakes from the cake goddesses!
