Engagement Cake

My mom hosted a dinner for her recently engaged friend and asked me to make a cake for the party. Luckily, I had the day before off from work, so I drove down to Virginia Beach to help out.

It's just a simple vanilla cake with chocolate frosting, chosen by the bride-to-be. I've been testing out some new recipes, trying to find a favorite for this combo, but I'm not sure this is it. I'm getting closer with the frosting, but this cake was a little dry.

Cake Truffles for a Tasting

I'm catering a baby shower in June, so a few weeks ago we had a tasting to finalize the menu.

These were the sample petit fours and cake truffles I made, using the baby girl's initials as a monogram.

They were a big hit, but for the shower I'll be doing them in a pink, white, and grey color scheme, which I love. It's feminine but still modern.

A shot of some of the savory selections: hot spinach dip, three different kinds of tea sandwiches, roasted shrimp orzo pasta, and artichoke crostini.

Thankfully, everyone loved all the food, and now I can't wait for the big event in June!
