Nikki and Alain got married in Mexico and for their party favours they chose our services. The couple's wedding theme included colourful Mexican skulls. And we rose to the occasion by presenting them with the most delicious and one-of-a-kind wedding party favours. The couple chose our hand-made mini alfajores. For this event we covered them in a velvety semi sweet chocolate. The multi-coloured Mexican skull design was a lot of fun to plan and make. We used edible sugar paper and inks. Each mini alfajor was carefully and individually wrapped in a clear cellophane bag tied with a ribbon and a personalized tag that we designed and printed exclusively for the couple. According to the bride's mother, these mini alfajores delighted the taste buds of all their guests! Thank you Nikki and Alain and congratulations!
As you know I used to make alfajores for all my kids' birthday. Mi daughter, Sofia, got married three weeks ago in Playa del Carmen and of course she wanted alfajores as favor gifts, so I made these ones for her and her husband Juan. We traveled with the alfajores in a carry-on all the way from Calgary to Playa del Carmen. To present them on the table we put them in a little box in front of every guest's plate. The guests were so happy with them, that they asked whether we had extras and began stealing each others' alfajores! Here you have some pictures.
Alfajores are a different option to have at your wedding. You can have them as favor gifts or in your sweet table. In this occasion the bride and the groom chose bite sized alfajores for the sweet table. We made bite size alfajores, either no gluten or semi-sweet chocolate flavors, wrapped in metallic paper and labelled with their initials to match with their wedding color.
