So excited to share this sweet baby shower with you all! A few weeks ago a friend asked if we could do cupcakes for her baby shower.. NOTE TO ALL FRIENDS AND FAMILY: NEVER, NEVER ask us to do “just cupcakes” 😛 😉 you will get way more than you bargained for! So, mama-to-be asked for “just cupcakes” and of course we went all out to celebrate the new little arrival!!! Her theme was “fall” and baby is a girl, so we took the rich autumn hues of brown, golden yellow, orange, and added a splash of deep fuchsia to get the “girlie” feel.. 😀
We did a custom gumpaste baby topper adorned with a tiny headband and flower and a matching gerbera daisy skirt and bed 🙂
The cake was two tiers decorated with handmade fondant leaves, branches, and gerbera daisies and of course the baby topper… (It looks lopsided on bottom, but not, weird angle of photo)

French Macarons – Marionberry and lemon.. They have become one of our specialties! Not many bakers will attempt to make them as they are finicky to make and have expensive ingredients. But they are WORTH it — SOOOO melt-in-your-mouth DELICOUS!!!!
Here are the cupcakes mama-to-be asked for! 😉
And the whole spread! I love when a vision and idea come together! My neighbor made the adorable name banner, since she is so handy with the cricut, and I can’t scrapbook to save my life 😛 The hostess had done the flower arrangement and baby clothes hanging up, and with all our desserts the whole thing came together beautifully!
