Erin’s Baby Shower

I’m so excited to share Erin’s baby shower sweets table and cake. I had the honor of creating Erin’s wedding cake and cupcakes over two years ago. It doesn’t seem that long ago, and now she and Mark are having a baby! Erin is one of those special brides who will always be very special to me, so I was thrilled when her mom called to ask me to do something special for her baby shower. The look was vintage/shabby chic with lots of ruffles and pink.

Lots of delicate fondant ruffles created this girly and frilly cake. The cake flavors were vanilla
cake with strawberry buttercream filling and red velvet with honey cream cheese filling.

 
The shower took place at Festivities off Bridge in New Cumberland and the cake was part 
of this vintage sweets table.

Erin is now gluten free(GF) so I made a chocolate GF cake with peanut butter buttercream 
filling for her to enjoy. Erin was kind enough to be a guinea pig for me when I was 
testing GF recipes 🙂 To tie in the vintage theme my mom (who happened to be in town) 
knitted adorable rosette decorations.
I also made French Macarons…yummy and gluten free!
Some delicate flowers in pretty vases added to the vintage flavor.

 My mom made a cute bunting out of a pillow case. We added the trim and knit rosettes (which I just loved) and I painted the lettering on them. The final touch was the shimmery chic burlapy linen from Special Occasions.
I also made mini butter cookies.

I found some great handkerchiefs on my last antique store shopping spree which worked
perfect with the table design. (Sorry…not sure what is up with the spacing.)
Congratulation Erin and Mark!  
You are going to be such amazing parents. What a lucky little girl.
