Since Pintrest has appeared those of us who like to be creative have stepped it up a notch with parties like baby showers. The amount of time one of us mentioned 'Got this idea from Pintrest' during the set up was slightly hilarious. We love Pintrest!
A range of people helped out making all the bits and pieces, so I can't take credit for all the things I posted here :). The shower had a book theme - which lead to a whole lot of cute food with book labels next to them.
My favourite thing of all was the cake. Ages ago Janice sent me a photo of a cake which was a pile of books with a baby on top.
We tried to find a baby from a cake shop but it didn't work out, but I think this was better. Their nick name for the baby is 'little bird' so when I was trying to work out what to put as the names of the books we came up with the idea of doing a little time line of their life so far.
It is the first time I have covered a cake completely with fondant and was so so happy with how it turned out. (Except for the pages that were a bit messy but pretty good for a first try) It's a little hard to tell, but the cake ended up pretty big, almost 30cm long and 20cm high, 3 layers of yummy chocolate and vanilla cake goodness :)
The afternoon was lovely - so excited for Janice and was excited to be able to play a part in celebrating this new stage of her life!
