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:

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

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!
