The invitations were sent, so I got busy organizing the baby shower which was being held at the mum-to-be's house. All the guests were excited by the theme and everyone offered to bring some Woodland themed sweets!
I made a woodland themed gingerbread house for the center piece, with mushroom gingerbread cookies, petal paste ivy, berries and ladybirds to decorate my shop-bought chocolate rolls and matchmakers. I also made woodland cupcake toppers to decorate cakes and handmade chocolate squirrels.
The sweet guests brought handmade butterfly cakes, chocolate squirrel cake pops inspired by Bakerella, fresh raspberry and mint decorated fairy cakes, chocolate bunny cookies, flower sugar cubes and berry almond muffins. One guest visited three patisseries that morning where she bought the cute marzipan ladybird, the enormous meringue and red currant topped chocolate brownies. Another bought the cute caterpillar chocolate rolls and another picked up the cute toadstool biscuits and acorn biscuits from a Japanese supermarket in North London.
We set up the table and the host was over the moon by her woodland themed sweets table. Gifts were given and we spent the afternoon chatting and laughing as we made our way through the yummy goodies on the table!
