Cheryl’s Bridal Shower


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. It was still a great shower (and a great wedding, which will be another post), and I still want to share it with you. 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.

Chocolate Macarons with Nutella Ganache


I was happily surprised with how well these macarons turned out. Humidity can really alter these little cookies, which makes me feel a little better about messing up every batch I made at home this past summer. (Melida had one successful batch, but that was done at ICE) There I learned how delicate these macarons are, and just one extra fold can ruin it all. One good tip I took away was to beat the egg whites at a low speed to avoid over whipping the whites. For this batch, I beat the egg whites for almost 20 minutes, and I watched it closely to make sure they were the perfect consistency.
