Last weekend Sarah, Kelli, and I had the honor of throwing our friend Athene a baby shower. Kelli made oh-so-yummy quiches and fruit tarts (you definitely have to try these!).
We also made some yummy cupcakes. I wanted to write this post to let you all know about my new favorite site: Bake It Pretty. I L-O-V-E this store. I would buy one of everything if I could. Make that ten of everything. We used these cupcake liners and this icing tip (which didn’t end up looking too bad even though my icing was not nearly thick enough and it flattened out. Next time, more powdered sugar!). Now you know where to go to get all of your cupcake baking needs. Check out Sarah’s post on the shower to see the cute things she made for it.
Oh! On the icing – I read a tip that says if you add the powdered sugar one tablespoon at a time you won’t have to use as much of it to get it thick! I tried it on the car bomb cupcakes and it worked really well!
Everything looks beautiful Jenn, what a wonderful shower! I bet Athene loved it all! And yes, those tarts are to die for. . . I haven’t made them in a long time. . . hmmm.
Athene loved it! Thank you so much for hosting this. :-)
