A is for Apple, B is for Baby

This weekend I held a baby shower for my boss Mary, and her second little baby, a Girl! Named Elan.  I made  vanilla and chocolate, devil’s food cake, cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, chocolate buttercream and pink raspberry buttercream, as well as some shower finger foods. Here’s some pictures of the table with the cupcakes and food. I’ll post links to where I found the recipes for the baby shower menu below. Enjoy!

Welcome Baby Elan!

Tea Sandwiches, Quiche & Cupcakes

The Table – Fruit, Veggies, Cupcakes, Sandwiches, Deviled Eggs, Quiche and Meringues!

Me and the Guest of Honor – Elan

Mary, Elan and I – Someone was hungry!

Elan enjoying all the goodies!

One day you can eat all those sweets!

Cupcakes and Raspberry Meringues!

Welcome Baby


Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes!

Cupcake Tower – Chocolate & Vanilla with Fondant Accents

For the Baby Shower Menu I used these recipes for inspiration:

Mini Quiche – Recipe from Martha Stewart: Cheese & Tree’s Mini Quiches

Raspberry Meringues – Recipe from Beantown Baker

Vanilla & Devils Food Cake Cupakes – Recipe from Bakeaholic

Tea Sandwiches – Recipe Inspiration from Martha Stewart.

    Those are adorable! What a lucky friend to have you doing the shower. I’m hosting a baby shower brunch next month and I can’t wait- mostly because of the yummy food! lol

    Your table looked great as did all the yummies. Elan is a cutie & I love her name. That was very nice of you to host a party for her.

    What adorable little cupcakes! They look too pretty to eat.

    I love how Elan is also looking at the camera in your photo together – those must be few and far between!

    I agree with you 100% – things happen for a reason. I found this by accident and noticed that we have some things in common. Thats what I love about the Internet, every blog is like a box of chocolates :) Thanks – Great blog.

    Intersting post. I stumbled upon your blog whilst doing a search on msn for something completely different, but I am glad I have found it and I have spent the past 30 mins reading previous posts. Keep up the good work and best of luck with your blog.
