Baby Shower Fun!

Hello all!
This weekend I had the joy of making goodies for the baby shower of one of my oldest friends! We met in the 5th grade, and living on the same block, we spent a LOT of time at each other's houses. I was so excited when I found out that she and her hubby were expecting their first baby! And I was thrilled when she asked me if I would make goodies for her!
They decided on a farm animal theme, and she asked me to make farm animal cookie favors and a mix of cake pops - some just plain pink, blue, and yellow, and some that were farm animals. (Did I mention that they are crazy enough to NOT found out what they're having??? I am too much of a planner, so we, of course, had to found out what we were having when we were pregnant! But, to each their own, right? :) )
Anyhow, we decided to turn the cake pops into centerpieces, which were then given away as prizes.
Here are some pics!
The pig cookie.

I tried two designs of chicks. One without sanding sugar....

And one with!

And a horse! (my favorite).
Here are the cake pops:

The chicken (my favorite!) The cake pop designs all came from the super talented Bakerella, in her awesome book, Cake Pops!!! You should check it out - it's awesome!!

The pig, ducky and chicken, hangin' together!

And here they are as a centerpiece!
All in all, it was a great, fun-filled day with old friends!! I am so happy for Tracy and Ryan and can't wait to find out whether we'll be welcoming a beautiful baby girl or a handsome baby boy!

Stay tuned tomorrow night for a SUPER easy and quick homemade mac and cheese recipe!
