Yesterday was my niece's baby shower! Emma & Dylan are expecting a little girl in January! My sister's and I were thrilled to be able to help out with the shower invitations! We used the Sizzix Fold Along owl die. I think they were so cute!
We help make the party favors too! These little baby carriages are adorable! We made about 30 of them. I think the lace edging really added to these buggies.
Here's what the fleet of carriages looked like at the shower! They really hold a lot of candy too!
My "thing" is Papercrafting! I look at each card as a gift of art! But I have been seeing some pretty amazing decorated cookies on Pinterest lately and I wanted to give it a try! I think cookies can be a little gift of art too. Well, not sure mine are yet but I am hoping with a little more practice ...mine might be too....Here are some pictures of the process.
Next came the icing. I used a recipe for Royal Icing. I watched many videos and searched tons of blogs- there are many recipes for Royal Icing but I settled on one that used Meringue Powder. It was surprisingly good. I added the dots to the onesies using the Wet on Wet technique. I am already talking like a cookie baker!!
The most fun was decorating these guys! I need to practice some more!! You really need a steady hand. I am thinking I will give Christmas cookies a try!
But nothing can compare to this beautiful cake! Dylan's Mom had a friend who made it for her! So cute!!
Just a couple more pictures of the shower! It really was a fun time! I can't wait to say hello to Emma & Dylan's little one. We were all so happy to be a part of this fun celebration!
