A Real Baby Shower: A Pea in a Pod

Friday, March 4, 2011

Can you tell I'm excited for Springtime?! Loving this fresh green color palette with splashes of yellow and white. This baby shower was also featured on Amy Atlas - and you can see why. Whitney and Heather (part of the fabulous Whipperberry Chicks) did a fantastic job of styling this dessert table along with creating the main attraction -- THE CAKE! All around Precious!

From Whitney... I’ve been a cake decorator for a couple of years now. I approached the art of caking like I do most things I want to learn about in life, I just started. I made a lot of mistakes. My first few cakes looked like they had boils beneath their fondant skin and I quickly learned that cake mixes make a cake too fluffy to bear the weight of fondant. So I had sagging, pimply cakes. But I didn’t give up! I kept trying new techniques and I eventually got to the point where I started selling my cakes. I loved making cakes, and I felt like I was satiating my creative passion.

Then I was introduced to the world of dessert tables.

I just had to try one to see if it was as fun to create as it was beautiful to look at. I started pouring over dessert tables designed by Amy Atlas, Kim at TomKat Studio, Sharnel at My Life, My Loves, and the list goes on. I found the perfect opportunity by asking my friend if I could throw a baby shower for her. We talked about themes and decided to go with “A Pea in the Pod”. The shower turned out beautifully and I had great help from so many friends. Heather took gorgeous photographs and we all enjoyed a
fabulous evening.
