The whimsical bridal shower box

My lovely neighbor, Candice merely said: "There are 8 of us at this bridal shower, and I want to impress." How nice it is to have the creative freedom in baking. When SW made a birthday cake order, she did the same: "I want a birthday cake, what can you make?" You have no idea how much I love you all for this.

You've seen the birthday cake. Here are pics of the bridal shower order:

The menu:

~ Plush chocolate pillows of engagement rings ~

Chocolate soufflé cupcakes with vanilla bean buttercream

~ Bed of roses ~

Nutty pistachio cupcakes with a hint of cardamom topped with creamy rose buttercream

~ Matcha dots ~

Matcha (green tea) macaroons with creamy white chocolate ganache

~ Petal dots ~

Hibiscus macaroons with sticky meringue cream and swirls of hibiscus syrup

~ Sandy sables ~

Buttery muffin tin cookies

I think I just gained a few pounds looking at that.

Oh, and that diamond ring is awesome. You are unbelievably talented and creative. I bet they will love them!

You make me want to get married. Or perhaps just have a wedding, without the commitment. All I have to do is convince Chong..
