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.


Nicole’s Wintery Baby Shower Sweets Table

Nicole is having a baby! A winter theme was perfect for today, especially with the snow 🙂 Navy, light blue, silver and a little sparkle.
 Blingy cake stands.

Snowflake shaped yogurt covered pretzels, silver sixlets, white whirley pops and non pareils
were just a few of the treats.
Chocolate cupcake and red velvet cupcakes were decorated with edible snowflakes.

White chocolate dipped pretzel sticks.
Cookies and cream Hershey kisses incorporated the light blue just for a baby boy.
Red velvet cake pops sprinkled with shimmery sprinkles.

Congratulations Nicole!! Thank you for thinking of me for all your special occasions 🙂

Mommy to Bee Baby Shower Cake

It seems like baby shower season is in full swing.  This is a fun cake I made recently for a shower at the Colonial Country Club in Harrisburg. The theme was “mommy to bee” including a black and yellow color scheme and bubble bee accents.

 The little flying fondant bees looked so cute hovering above the cake.
 Just a pop of of color with a bright yellow peony was the perfect accent. The cake flavor was spice cake with caramel buttercream filling.

Baby Bootie Baby Shower Cupcake Tower

I had the honor of creating this cupcake tower for a baby shower. The color theme was lavender and pink. Little baby booties with hundreds of tiny flowers on them were the cake topper.

The cupcake flavors were vanilla cupcake with strawberry buttercream frosting, chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting and vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting.

Little flower blossoms and onesies decorated each cupcake.

Twin’s Brown & Blue Baby Shower

Today, I had the honor of creating a dessert table for a baby shower. The mom to be is on bed rest at the hospital, so the shower was actually held in a private dining room at the hospital.

The theme was onesies, so I made a banner out of onesies and clipped each one to a ribbon with mini clothes pins.

The cake topper was spice cake with caramel buttercream filling.

The cupcake flavors were Nutty Monkey and Chocolate Chocolate.

Each of the cupcakes had a mini edible onesie on them.

Gorgeous custom milk chocolate dipped Oreos where created by Sweeties by Kim.

Each of the jars had a custom tag I created. In addition to Hershey Kisses, there were also blue and white shark gummies, blue M&Ms, yogurt covered peanuts, malted milk balls, chocolate dipped pretzel sticks, kettle corn, and caramel corn.

The adorable onesie cookies were made by Edible Art by Kim. They were so cute!

The mom to be’s mother organized an amazing shower for her daughter. I wish her the very best!
