My first baby shower table, WOO-HOO! I had the pleasure of doing this for a dear childhood friend who is expecting her first little one. We exchanged emails through Facebook and I was given total control. All she insisted on were cookies and cake pops which I ran with. Her choices were sooo fitting for the setting and ended up being all the rage!

Would I sound cliché if I said IT’S A JUNGLE OUT THERE? The words Hobby Lobby & 50% Off just causes a frenzy amongst some of us! Thank goodness I have several stores to choose from in my area because the hustle and bustle at the location I was at was just too much. Maybe I can bring myself to trust the computer monitor colors and order online next time…(I ponder)

So excited to start on this jungle baby shower dessert table! Lions and tigers and bears, oh my… where do I begin? Well first, I know fondant decorated sugar cookies are an absolute MUST. Now, to just narrow down the candy choices…decisions, decisions. I LOVE MY JOB!

Today’s post is so cheap of me but with good cause. I’m still recuperating from the tragic, tragic loss of my pictures from my trip to
. As soon as I got ready to upload them to my Shutterfly account, INVALID Jamaica CARD ERROR flashed and almost brought me to tears. Right now, we are feverishly looking for a recovery company to salvage our memories. *big sigh*
Now on to business... Bake It, Display It. These basic essentials will get you started with baking something yummy. Then you can display your sweet treats on some of these chic platters for everyone to enjoy. Beware, sometimes the displaying never happens... that test finger swipe in the buttercream icing can turn into half of the cake disappearing before it hits the 10" Martha Stewart cake stand.

Excuse the quality of these photos...UGH! This camera is doing my table a great injustice or could it be the operator? =D Anyway (while I put the camera manual away) had a huge success at another beautiful wedding, but this time with the kiddos. The cool whip icing cupcakes disappeared like crazy! And, not only was the blue a match it was YUMMY! I had to make sure of that. For some reason confectioners out there seem to limit the flavors of blue. I have never had so much blueberry flavored candy in my life. Nevertheless, Koppers Milkies saved the day along with some help from M&M’s.

Man, this blue is difficult… but not impossible. And, I can just forget about ordering from the internet. I just can’t trust the monitor. What is a girl to do? *sigh* (hovers over a crystal ball) "I see in my near future... driving around town with little swatches of fabrics and tasting blue candy".
