Last Sunday we had our baby shower.
That went swimmingly. Even with a tiny bit of family drama thrown in. I got a few homemade gifts that are super adorable.
My oldest sister knitted this adorable little button up sweater for Rohan. It pulls at my heart strings it is that adorable.
We were gifted this adorable Star Wars book– full of spoilers! But oh so adorable!
After the baby shower we managed to get a crib and changing table put together. Both items are from Ikea and already the kitties are helping us test out the crib.
I made all of the sweets for the baby shower. Including homemade marshmallows, sugar cookies, marshmallow fudge and cake balls.
I didn’t take many pictures of the cake ball process. There are a lot of steps but overall it is an easy process.
I first made my cakes. I followed this recipe exactly. For my rainbow sprinkles I used my homemade sprinkles. I allowed the cakes to cool over a day.
Heres where I have no pictures so lets use our imagination here.
Once the cakes were cooled I crumbled them into the stand mixer with a package of cream cheese. Mixed those together throughly and to top off the taste I added a table spoon more vanilla paste. Im on an ok level with cream cheese flavor so I added the vanilla to cover up that taste.
I then used a teaspoon to measure out the balls and roll them into shape. I chilled the balls in the fridge over night.
Once throughly chilled I rolled and covered the balls in almond bark and sprinkled with the homemade sprinkles.
Im pretty sure I ate most of the cake balls. They are that good.
More sewing related projects will come this week. 🙂
