Last weekend I went to a baby shower for a friend of mine. I volunteered to bring cookies but I am friends with the girls hosting the shower so I got to help out with the decorations and desserts too. I LOVE crafty things like this so I jumped at the chance to help out and to be honest I was a little afraid that my single Manhattan friends would be a little out of their element hosting a baby shower :)
cake pops but they're kind of this new fad. They are absolutely adorable in theory but in reality they are ridiculously hard to make. I ended up helping one of the girls try to make them for the shower. We were trying to make cake pops that looked like babies with pacifiers. We got maybe three to turn out halfway decent.
cookie cutters for Christmas that have slots to hold letters and you can insert any words you want. I was really happy with the cookies and everyone seemed impressed and kept asking how I did it; the secret is they were super easy!
As you can tell I love this kind of stuff and I'm really excited about my friend having a baby. She will be the first one of my NY friends to have a baby and I'm very curious to see how the whole baby in NY thing works.
