I hosted another baby shower this past weekend, this makes three in three months. I love parties!!
We started with quiche and muffins.
And then added some berry fruit cups.
I love this cocktail line of plastic serving ware at Party America. Besides these 2 oz square bowls, that have 3″ plates, 2 oz round bowls, and even 7″ trays. I could totally see a small plates party using this whole collection. Hmmmm…..maybe my next party! Of course we could not have a party without cake and cookies. My friend Joyce made this gorgeous cake which matched the invitations.
And I made some baby face sugar cookies that tasted great but the decorating could have been much better. I used Jenny Steffen Hobick’s Sugar Cookie and Royal Icing recipe which is by far the best I have ever made. You can find those recipes here.
The decorating was inspired from a post on Pinterest which was ADORABLE and much, much better than my attempts. You can see that link here.
I used a black AmeriColor gourmet writer pen to make the face after the icing dried completely. On my cookies the pen bled into the icing and I could not get the fine line I was hoping for. I am going to try this pen again though because I like the idea of it and my results were probably just due to lack of skill and experience. Never the less, they were fun to make.
Happy Day everyone!
