Baby Boy Shower!

Boy Oh Boy! Here are my finished products for the big baby shower...

The cake was a tower of homemade layers of vanilla cake with strawberry & bavarian cream filling and double chocolate cake with chocolate custard. It was covered in white fondant and fondant decorations. And it seemed to be a big hit!

I created the handmade baby blocks as an added decoration for the shower. It was also a creative way to use some extra invitations that featured baby photos of the Mommy & Daddy-to-be. They turned out so cute! I had a hard time keeping them away from my 2-year old daughter. (She'd love a set with her own picture on them...hmmm)

I also made 60 sugar cookie "pops" in the shapes of rattles and baby onesies. They were iced and decorated in coordinating colors of white, blue & brown, then individually wrapped with a tiny bow. The cookies, which were ordered as favors for the guests, were featured in colorful tissue-wrapped buckets and presented as cookie bouquet centerpieces (I love to have 2-for-1 decorations- especially edible ones!)

I had such a great time making these treats...and everything looked so fun & festive together. The shower was lovely, and I was so happy to be able to add to their special day! (Thanks Michelle! And best wishes to Mommy-to-be Jacqui!) xoxo

Baby Boy Cookie Pops

Here are some cookie pops (rattles and onesies) that I made for a baby boy shower. The baby onesies are my favorite...I love my little boy in preppy stripes and argyle, and the cookies were just as cute! This was before they were wrapped up and transported. Got milk? Cookie pops start at $3.50 each.
