Recently, I hosted a dessert theme baby shower for a friend and co-worker. After a lot of discussions on theme and menu, we agreed on having a dessert and drink shower for a small group of her co-workers. There were only two desserts that she requested: carrot cake or cupcakes and lemon bars; and I was basically left to go with the rest of the menu. I wanted to take more pictures of the party; but really ran out of time but here are a few pictures of the desserts I made. I thought that this was really a fun idea for a baby shower.
In addition to the desserts I listed below, her family made dessert crostini with ricotta spread, sliced strawberries and balsamic vinegar glaze and baked brie with apricot jelly, sugar cookies and Italian fried cookies (I have no recipes for those). For drinks, we had coffee, iced tea, cold soft drinks, and bottled water.
Here are the desserts I made:
S’mores Pops (recipe coming up soon, I promise–these were divine!)
Lemon Bars (No pictures)
Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipster (No pictures)
Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies (No pictures)
