Earlier this month, I had the privilege of putting together a dessert table for my friends, Cyndi and Jeff, at their Sip and See party. Never heard of a Sip and See? Well, it's the newest baby trend, this post-birth champagne party is basically like a shower held after the baby is born. A wonderful way to gather family and friends to see the baby if they haven't so already.
I was super excited to be adding a dessert table to the party, given that I have never put one together before. During my days off from making cake pops, I'm in the kitchen baking and trying out new desserts. So with her trust in me, I was able to put together my very first dessert table for baby Blake's Sip and See. Enjoy!
|The adorable bird themed invitation...loved the colors!|
|Beginning stages of the peanut butter butterscotch haystacks|
|Can you guess what these will be for?|
|Pipping bird faces on candies to add to the bird theme|
|The necessary decorations to make the cake pop birdies; star sprinkles for the feet, rainbow chip sprinkles for the beaks and gum-paste cut outs for the chest and wings|
|Viola! Birdie cake pops!|
|Mini vanilla cupcakes - I love mini desserts, sometime all you need is just a bite!|
|The mini cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting and blue and green sanding sugar for some crunch|
|Madeline cookies - light and airy|
|Gotta add the green and blue!|
Now to the Sip and See!
|The chocolate eggs ended up on the haystacks to make bird's nests!|
|The new family of 4 represented on the red velvet and cream cheese buttercream cake =)|
|Chocolate ganache to sandwich the macaroons, my favorite combo.|
|There he is! Baby Blake and his beautiful Mommy!|
|Blake and me :)|
Thanks for viewing! And thank you to The Young Family, welcome Baby Blake!
