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!



Mini-Cakes for Jessica’s Virtual Shower

In just a few weeks my super sweet friend Jessica, from My Baking Heart, will be tying the knot with her fiance, Chris. She’s obviously a smart girl, because October is THE best time to get married. 🙂 To honor the beautiful bride-to-be, our friend Nikki, from Pennies on a Platter, organized a virtual bridal shower, and I couldn’t be more excited to participate!

Jessica is a Southern Belle and one of the most genuinely sweet ladies out there! One thing I really love about her is that she is just as passionate about cooking and baking as she is about football at her alma mater, TCU (Texas Christian University). When deciding what to make for her shower I wanted to tie together all of my favorite things about her! Something sweet, dainty, and, of course, purple!

The mini-cakes I decided on are like a cross between petit fours and Little Debbie zebra cakes. I decided to coat them with white chocolate ganache instead of poured fondant because…well, it just tastes better (and reminds me of zebra cakes, an old childhood lunch favorite!).  I won’t promise you that the white chocolate was much less work than poured fondant, but the taste was worth it in the end.

Congratulations, Jessica!! I am so happy for you and wish you a lifetime of happiness! To see what other bloggers made for this special occasion check out the round-up on Nikki and Jessica’s blogs!
