And Saturday we’ll see what my sweet friend Kara from Kara’s Party Ideas has to say! I’ve known Kara for years through the internet but was lucky enough to meet her in person this past December at the annual Santa’s Secret Workshop I help put on every year. Kara came out and helped us style our Santa room. She is just as sweet and cute in real life!! We stayed up until the wee hours of the night talking “party”. Looking forward to hearing what she has to say about Eat More Dessert!

The Bachelor’s Jason and Molly Mesnick celebrated their daughter Riley’s 1st Birthday last weekend with a mint green, black and white themed soiree! It’s hard to believe sweet Riley is already a year old. It seems like yesterday I was baking up a storm for Molly’s baby shower!
To coordinate Molly’s color scheme into the dessert table, I created an ICE CREAM SHOP themed table for little Riley, complete with a black and white striped fabric awning with a giant 3-scoop ice cream cone cake! I baked cupcakes topped with “scoops” of buttercream, ice cream cone cake pops, sugar cookies shaped as ice cream sundaes, brownies as ice cream sandwiches and waffle cup hot fudge sundaes with melted chocolate! Minted created an adorable personalized banner for the table and cupcake flags that were perfect for the wooden spoons in the hot fudge sundaes. Cookies and cupcakes sat atop my favorite jadite colored cake plates and vintage wooden drawers and boxes held ice cream cone cake pops and rice krispy treat ice cream bars. It turned out super cute!
Sweet Riley was a perfectly mannered lady when Molly presented her with a pink velvet smash cake made up of mint green buttercream ruffles. She politely tasted a lick of buttercream, but moved on to turkey, her favorite snack and word.
The party was a blast. Molly’s friends and family couldn’t be sweeter. Bride-to-be Desiree Hartsock and fiance Chris Siegfield came to wish Riley a Happy Birthday and pose in the cute photo-booth area Molly created. It was great to meet them in person and wish them congrats on their engagement. So excited for their upcoming wedding!
If you’d like to create an Ice Cream Shop dessert table of your own, guess what? All the recipes and table instructions for the Ice Cream Shop table are featured in my new book EAT MORE DESSERT out April 8th! Pre-order your copy now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble today!

It’s that time of year! Time for school Valentine’s Day parties!
Hudson chose robots, and Ally picked out a milk and cookies valentine from Minted. Minted has the cutest classroom valentine cards, it was hard for Ally and H to choose!
I added a little something extra to their cards, coordinating sugar cookies packaged up in cello bags and tied with ribbon. My kids were so excited to pass them out!
I’m so proud to announce the publication of my first cookbook!
