Riley Mesnick’s 1st Birthday Party | Ice Cream Shop

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!
