My most loyal friend of 32 years and I decided to honor our dear friend of 20 years with a surprise Bridal Shower back home in Miami.
In celebration of the bride-to-be, I tried my hand at these bridal shower cake pops fancied up with edible diamonds from Fancy Flours.
The jewels are made out of candied sugar (like a ring pop) and lend just the right touch for special occasions.
They are clear and sparkle in the light and come in many colors. I love their selection assorted edible gemstones. Those will probably show up in a later post!
I made the bridal shower cake pops with a fairy pink candy coating and a piped on design resembling an engagement ring.
The cake ball is made of strawberry cake and lemon cream icing and tasted like a strawberry-lemonade-creamsicle. Perfect flavors for a South Florida party.
Now on to the bridal shower for our beautiful B.F.F.She was a well-deserved princess for the day (and well into the night!) It was her time to get pampered and appreciated.
The festive table was filled with mini Cuban bocaditos (finger foods) from Vicky Bakery. We had some favorites like Croqueticas de Jamon (ham croquettes), Pastellitos de Carne (meat pastries) and Empanadas Espanola (Spanish pastries).
And look at this gorgeous tower of cupcakes!
All made from scratch by the talented Gina (you can see her work on Pinterest).
Each delicious cupcake was made to coordinate with a matching cocktail: Margarita, White Russian and Vanilla Cake.
We played fun games including this one.
Naturally, the twins would choose the same random number - 209 - (they say twins are psychic!) But they also chose the CORRECT number. They WON!
It was a wonderful day . . .
Filled with good friends . . .
and loving family!It was a day to come together to celebrate the friendship of an amazing person who is deeply valued in our circle. And we welcome her incredible fiance with open arms because he has given her the precious gift of true love . . .
