It’s almost time to call our wedding stuff a wrap, but before I do I MUST, must, must share with you my DC bridal shower. My girls planned a lingerie bridal shower for me which was fabulous and the details were perfection. The Newlywed Game was was pretty hilarious. Before the bridal shower they asked my husband questions about the me and our relationship. Then I was asked the same questions. For each question I got wrong I had to chew a piece of bubble gum.
In the picture on the left we are all laughing and my sister is passing me some gum since I got a question wrong. In the picture on the right I am clearly hesitant about the next question that will be asked.
Although I did pretty well I was definitely drooling because I was chewing so much bubble gum by the end of the game. Do you see the tissue/napkin in my hand … yes I was starting to drool LOL. That bubble gum is JUICY I tell you! To go with the lingerie theme my cousin (who is insanely talented in the cake baking/designing department) made this beautiful cake:
I believe it is two sheet pan cakes – one for the base and one for the body – and the boobs were cupcakes. I’ve been dying for a friend to have a lingerie themed bridal shower or bachelorette. I would love to attempt to make this cake. I found one blog that gave step by step instructions on how to make the cake, but it has recently been removed … POUT! I should have copied the direction as soon as I found the blog – lesson learned.
And because one DIY baked good just wouldn’t do my sister and my mom’s friend made a second. They made butt/lingerie cookies for all bridal shower guests. Not only were the cookies yummy, they were so cute! But these cookies are hard to transport. The cookies pictured below were among the survivors from the 1.5 hour flight to DC from Boston. Luckily they planned ahead and made extra in the event that some of the cookies broke during their travel time. It’s strongly recommended you don’t travel too much with these little guys or they might get ruined.
So what did they need to make these cookies you might ask …
- Sugar Cookie Recipe
- Heart shaped cookie cutter
- White Frosting mixed with different food coloring
- Frosting bags and tips
I Facebooked my mom’s friend and she was kind enough to give me some tips on how to make these cookies come out right. “I used a rolled sugar cookie dough. Rolled it out and cut them into heart shapes. as soon as they came out of the oven, I cut off the tip end of the cookie, forming the butt part. It was a lot of trial and error. I tried doing that before I cooked them, but it didn’t work. they would swell and spread and not even look like a ‘fat butt’. ” Thanks for the tips Kathy!! Then the frosting bags were filled with tips and frosting. From there you just decorate each individual cookie.
The husband showed up at the end of the shower to have dessert with me and all my lovely ladies. My dad was there as well … don’t worry we wouldn’t leave him out. :) As folks were picking out their cookies and saying goodbye I snapped this fun picture of my little sister and husband. I LOVE the picture and THEM!!!
The shower was SO much fun! Do you like the cake and butt cookies? I know I do!!!
