Virtual Baby Shower!

In the past I have participated in and hosted virtual showers in honor of some awesome blogging friends. Well guess what! Monday it was my turn! My sweet friends Jessica, from My Baking Heart, and Krystal, from Mrs.Reguerio’s Plate, hosted a virtual baby shower in my honor! I was so touched when they offered and I knew with the two of them working together it would be fabulous.

The girls came up with an adorable theme –

And the guests contributed some seriously good looking food! Click the pictures to visit my friends and get the recipe for their tasty contributions!

  

Just like all of the virtual showers I have participated in, the only thing that would have made it better is if we were all really able to get together in real life to enjoy good company and good food! A huge thank you to Krystal, Jessica, Katie, Joelen, Amber, Krissy, Rachel, Kelsey, Elly, Nikki, and Nicole, for helping me celebrate my little Miss Maeve!

 

 

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Cupcakes for Krystal’s Virtual Shower

Today I’m participating in another virtual baby shower! This one is for my sweet friend Krystal, of Mrs. Regueiro’s Plate! She is on her way to 2 under 2! Last year she had a sweet baby girl, Elena, and now she is expecting another little one. When she was pregnant with Elena she was Team Green and it was torture waiting to find out what she had. Not knowing what she was having she lovingly referred to baby as Cookie. This time around they decided to find out ahead of time and they are having a baby boy! Of course it only seemed appropriate for him to have a fun foodie nickname as well, so he is lovingly referred to as Cupcake.

To honor Krystal and her little Cupcake, Eva has graciously offered to host this virtual shower. The theme is… cupcakes! So each of the shower participants is contributing a different cupcake recipe. Originally I was thinking of a more delicate cherry vanilla cupcake. Then I thought, she’s having a boy! He needs a strong and powerful cupcake. Thus was born the Chocolate Covered Pretzel Cupcake. Rich and chocolatey, sweet and salty, with a powerful presence.
