It's a Baby Shower!

I love showers! They are a themed and girly event that I cannot resist. I had the honor of helping plan a baby shower for my dear friend.

I had so much fun making these heart shaped cookies. The lace design was much easier than I had anticipated. Sweet Sugar Belle provides a great tutorial for this pattern. 

Drinking out of mason jars with pink paper straws completes a shower experience, in my opinion.

Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting and Cloud toppers.

Craft time! Onesie decorating!

We welcomed the sweet baby girl in style!

Ideas on How To Top a Cupcake

You can personalize any cupcake for a special event with a handmade cupcake topper. It's cute and easy way to add detail when royal icing, sugar gum paste and fondant fail you.

These zebra print bow ties were created for a dear friend's engagement party. They celebrate the coming together of her sense of style and his sense of style.

Here are some other ideas to top your adorable creations...
Get crafty with paper - Heart-Toppers

Use fruit to create a memorable topper- Pineapple Flowers

Create a twist on a fun drink and stick a straw in it- pink lemonade

Decorate with candy - Merry little cupcake

If you have a little extra time you can graduate to candy melt creations -Flowers, butterflies, fireworks

How do you top your cupcake?
