Cheryl’s Bridal Shower

4 Comments

Blogging philosophical question of the day: if something happened over a year ago, am I still allowed to post it?

I’m not sure about you, but if it’s still relevant, why not? So what Cheryl and Joe were married last September, and so what her bridal shower happened last summer.

And working with a bunch of creative folk like Cheryl and her friends always makes these events super fun.

As much as Cheryl would have wanted to plan her own shower, her bridesmaids gave her one task only: choosing the theme. She chose the horse race scene from My Fair Lady as a design cue for the bridal shower, which was loosely translated as a “black and white” theme. The bridal party did a great job decorating the space, and I was tasked with baking some black and white items. How did we do? See the rest of the pictures after the jump.

After the success of Jenn’s bridal shower, I kept thinking about how much I enjoyed every aspect of throwing it – working with others in planning and the coordination of food and logistics. What I loved most was that in helping, the guest of honor was left worry-free from the painstaking details needed to make the event successful.

Thai Tea Cupcakes

9 Comments

Over a year ago, I attempted to make a cupcake with a creamy Thai tea filling. The filling turned out to be a disaster so I was left with a regular cupcake with some Thai tea frosting. I said I would try making them again, but I hadn’t until now. It’s not the same cupcake; [...]
