Here Comes The Bride!

2 Comments | Written on May 11, 2011 at 5:00 am , by

Wedding bells are ringing!  Before the beautiful bride walks down the aisle, there are plenty of parties and showers to celebrate the pending nuptials.  If you are looking for a bridal shower activity, a delicious dessert, and even a gift idea, you have come to the right place!

As young couples start their life together a well-prepped kitchen is a must, and there is nothing like a sturdy and efficient stand mixer!  This one from Breville is perfect for someone who is new to baking.  I love the beater with the rubber scrapers already attached.  It cleans the sides of the bowl as it mixes!  This model also comes with a built in timer and easy to follow speed guide on the side.  (More photos here)

If you are looking for a wedding shower activity, look no further than this adorable Tiered Cakelet Pan from Nordic Ware.  Prepare the individual sized cakes in advance and then allow your party guests to express their creativity and decorate!

You can provide frosting in an array of colors, and offer a variety of sprinkles and embellishments.  (No need to get too intricate or fancy…all of the looks here I created with prepared icing and sprinkles from the baking aisle at Target!)  It is so much fun to sit around the table with all your girlfriends and create personalized cakes.  The best part is, dessert is done!  (To take a peek at a few more of the looks I created, check out this photo gallery.)
