Today I helped host a bridal shower for a dear friend of mine, Kat (you can check out her blog here). I've known her since 5th grade and we even visited each other in Spain when we were studying abroad our junior years. This summer she's marrying her high school sweetheart - which is just about the cutest thing ever.
The party was a lot of fun! Who doesn't enjoy making toilet paper wedding dresses, finding out what crazy things other women carry in their purses, and watching the bride shove piece after piece of Bubblelicous into her mouth as she tries to answer questions about her soon-to-be husband (I wish I had brought my camera for this!)
Do you know how difficult it is for women to not cross their legs when they sit or stand? We each had a clothespin and if someone caught you crossing your legs they got to take it from you. The key was to be the one with all the clothespins. I made it maybe half an hour before I fell victim to the habit.
I made the cake for the shower and decided to try a new lemon cake recipe. According to her mom, Kat likes light cakes with berries. Well, the recipe sounded perfect! I have to admit that I was worried about the cake throughout the whole party. This morning it was waaaay too lemony, but by this afternoon the flavor had lessened. I frosted it with a lemon buttercream and topped it with blueberries and strawberries.
