One of my best friends, Ashley and JR, are having a baby soon, so today, Erika and I threw her a shower to celebrate!
But back up to earlier in the week when we started making the favors and the cake!
First Step: FAVORS!
We made chocolate covered pretzels!
We melted down some chocolate to decorate inside the molds with:
We had to paint all the details with a paintbrush:
And we melted down some chocolate for the base:
All wrapped up!
Second Step: Sugar Cookies!
Then we had to frost them all!
Third Step: Bear Cake!
Erika found this super cute bear cake in the Wilton Magazine:
We Erika made the two layers of the bear first. and used frosting to stack it together.
Then she got to work decorating with frosting!
(I think my camera ate some of the detail shots of this!)
Erika pretty much made them and I watched (moral support!) And she was nice enough to let me lick the spoon. lol
The Final Product! So cuuute!!!
While we baked, the boys were jumping around playing the wii!
We had a BLAST planning the shower. I was sad Ashley couldn’t be there… but I guess we had to keep it a surprise!
Oh man! I just realized now that I forgot to make the muzzle light brown too! Bummer!! Oh well, maybe next time!!
oh, i don’t think it mattered. it was so cute!
I can’t believe you two MADE all these things. Impressive!! They look so professional! Such talented girls and great friends. 🙂
