In December I met Bachelor alums Jason and Molly Mesnick at Santa’s Secret Workshop. Jason and Molly have been married now for three years, live here in Seattle, and are expecting their first baby together this March. I was thrilled to create a dessert table for Molly’s special day, her “baby party” as she called it.
Minted designed a darling invitation and coordinating party decor. Using gender neutral colors (gray, green, yellow, and white) along with baby animals, giraffes, elephants, zebras, and sheep. To incorporate the stationary into the dessert table, I pulled the colors into the icing, and made animal shaped sugar cookies to coordinate with the invitation. With Minted’s matching table confetti, I made a bunting to hang across vintage windows, and made an even tinier one for the top of the cake.
Our table was featured on people.com as well as E! online, Yahoo, Project Nursery, The Bump and more. The shower was also shown on E! News with Giuliana Rancic, giving Jenny Cookies a great shout-out! Yay!
Congratulations Jason and Molly! I can’t wait to meet your new bundle of joy!
Another fun table from June was the Bake Shop dessert table we did for a baby shower in Mercer Island. The couple hosted a sip and see for their close family and friends to meet their new baby girl. The hosts showered their guests with not only sips but lots of sweets as well!
I am discovering more and more ways to make buttercream as appealing and even more gorgeous than fondant covered cakes. Using fondant is sometimes necessary to achieve a certain look or concept, but there is nothing like sinking your teeth into a cake covered in buttercream.
Loving this blue ombre cake we did for a boy baby shower. Just because it’s a blue doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty! We did batman in buttercream, which could have been completely fondant covered, but instead we just used the fondant as accents to decorate Gotham City. The pink ombre cake was for a sweet 16th, and Barbie was made trendy covered in ombre pink buttercream roses.
