When Jana emailed and asked if I would her with a bridal shower she was throwing… I agreed immediately. When I saw the invitation, I was so glad I did. Is that not one of the most beautiful invites?

She wanted some cookies.



She wanted some cupcakes.



And she wanted a cake.



25 Sugar Cookies

25 Vanilla Pound Cake Cupcakes

And a Chocolate Cake covered in homemade fondant that would feed about 25.


I could not have asked for a better theme… the colors are just lovely and the different mediums were challenging and fun!


I made a few different options for the cupcake toppers… but settled on the full royal icing flower.


I cant wait to show you the inside of the cake! But I will let Jana email me pictures of that after they cut into it.

And… early congrats to Kaitlyn and Peter!


Oh, and why "Amore"? The hubby to be has actually been in Italy for the last few months! Now how romantic is that?!?
