[Party Planning] Baby Shower Dessert Details

One of my favorite details of the shower was the dessert buffet! 

My stepmom in law picked up the cupcakes and flag sugar cookies from a local bakery.  The cupcakes were true red velvet (no food dye!) with cream cheese icing and chocolate chip pound cake with chocolate butter cream icing.  I made some cupcake toppers in advance to keep the theme and colors consistent.

The flag cookies were inspired by this pin. My stepmother in law placed them in styrofoam rectangles and covered them with moss, perfect presentation!

My girlfriend made her go-to cake pops, brownie pops, and chocolate covered strawberries.  She put an "A" on the coral pops and used glitter sugar and peanut butter topping on the others.  The chocolate covered strawberries also got a touch of the peanut butter and they were so good!

Lastly, I offered to get in on the fun and made the rice krispie treats.  I was also inspired by this pin originally from Cupcakes and Cashmere.  Not only are rice krispie treats super easy to make, but I had an excuse to use my bakers twine!

Not included on the table, but instead at each place setting, my stepmother in law made chocolate covered pretzels for each guest to take home.  She made a variety for each bag and packaged them similar to this pin.

Nothing like a Sunday afternoon sugar high!


  1. Wow! I'm so inspired by all of your dessert table details. I seriously want to start dipping something in some chocolate! All of your friends and family did such a great job. I also really like how you glammed up the rice krispie treat. What a fun little dessert. :)

  2. awwww you look so happy and stylish btw. Makes me wish I was pregnant again. Try to enjoy every second of this time because you forget it over time. I have an almost 2-year-old and I look at her and can't believe how much she's grown.
