Springtime is in the air.....and Easter Day is just around the corner. The menu on ditzie cakes is sure to delight many. I thought I would try my hand at the brownie pops for the first time. I can see why William Sonoma charges that much for the amount of labor that is involved. And no kidding when some of the bloggers admit to the ones that don't successfully come out from just being baked! A little frustrating for me when things don't go smoothly. Nor the chocolate coating that gets a good swirl and dunk! It will definitley take a good amount of practice to get it just right to my liking. Anyway, the Easter menue is now up on the ditzie cakes site so I hope that you will enjoy what I have prepared for you!

I met this terrific lady by the name of Marilyn who wanted to host a baby shower for a friend of hers! Instructions by the expectant and her mother were advised to make something very simple with little fuss and relatively with no theme. Well luckily it didn't turn out that way!!!
When I walked into Marilyn's lovely home, the tables were decorated with linens that were layered with the colors of chocolate and celery. Chocolate napkins were tied with baby blue ribboned bows! Simply stunning. The center peice of each table was to be filled with a tower of cupcakes and below the tree lied adorable toy cars ,trucks, building blocks and each seating had a vanilla soy candle dressed in baby blue organza! Just delightful.... I took pictures with someone elses camera so I am hoping that she will send me them to me soon! I would love to add to this post to show you how it all came together.
I had so much fun with these decorations and I hope that the guests and the expectant mother enjoyed the thoughtfulness and great planning of the hostess too.... that's Marilyn! Hooray!
