Baby Shower


Our friends threw us a baby shower earlier this month! The baby’s room theme is Totoro and boy is it nice to have nerdy friends who totally understand us. First off, our friend Anthony designed and put together this amazing diaper cake. I didn’t even know what a diaper cake was and he created this thing of Totoro beauty!!!!

My pastry chef sister helped me make snacks and sweets for the event. Cakes, chocolate covered pretzels, cupcakes, and fruit cones.
