two days before the shower I made a cute welcome baby banner with the help of my cricut machine. And I made two scrapbook pages to display our friends Jessica and Ellis when they were babies and a couple of framed pictures with their families it came out so nice!
the night before the shower I was cooking and baking…I made 4 dozen cupcakes I used 30 for the shower and kept the rest on reserve. I had help, two friends made an additional 3 dozen! I made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla/coconut pudding filling. I did a semi homemade frosting mixture keep this in mind when you are looking for a short cut.
for the frosting I mixed 1 container of marshmallow creme and 2 different vanilla frostings. I added 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 2 Tbs. coco lopez and 1/2 cup powder sugar, whipped in mixer tasted great. I put a thin layer of frosting on the cupcakes then shredded coconut and then piped the frosting on top of each cupcake. The Vanilla pudding shown here was used for the filling I added 2Tbs. of coco lopez to give it a bit of coconut flavor!
1 day before the shower I got the pom poms hung, cupcakes baked…And the jumbo marshmallows dipped in caramel with a dash of sea salt and drizzled with chocolate. I put the tortilla casserole together so I just needed to bake it the next day. The last thing I made was a white bean dip . We are ready for tomorrow! Stay tuned for the shower details…..
