THE CAKES AND LOTS OF SWEET YUMMIES
ruffle cake. not one but two. to be honest, i didn't think I had it in me. i even tried to find someone else to frost the cakes, but in the end i thought i would give it a try. i chose to make the strawberry buttercream icing from scratch...yummmmm.
i did say this was going to be a decadent and over-the-top event, so a couple of cakes wouldn't do. the sweets table was perfect with cake pops, sugar cookies (my aunt's recipe), candies, and cupcakes-in-a-jar (yes, i said cupcakes-in-a-jar)!
i received so many compliments on the shower, that for a (very) brief moment i thought we should go into party planning until my husband shot that idea down real fast. more specifically, "you guys are crazy. how many small business can two women run?"
we love you guys. only a couple more weeks to go.
