|Bridal Shower Cupcakes|
Last night, my daughter Katie and I baked and decorated sugar cookies for today's bridal shower. This shower, hosted by my friends Sarah and Beth (of the 2-birthday cake Beth from last week's post!) is for Lauren, a former Skidmore student who is getting married in a few weeks. I am so excited to have baked these cookies for Lauren's shower. She is a beautiful, happy, lovely woman who found the just-right person to spend her life with. It is a happily-ever-after love story if there ever was one, for two people who truly deserve joy in their lives.

There is more baking going on in my kitchen, of a non-shower nature. Yesterday, my neice Lauren (another Lauren) came by with cupcakes she made for her daughter Scarlet's birthday party today. Scarlet is her youngest child of three. She has a big sister Lili and a brother, Will. Lauren and I played with fondant and made bumble bees, flowers, and Minnie Mouse bows to top the cupcakes which will be served at the birthday party later today. It took some time but was worth the effort. Scarlet loves all things Minnie Mouse, and bumble bees, so she got both and I think they go together nicely. Henry came up to "help" and he and Lauren worked on making the bumble bee bodies.

And now, I must stop writing to decorate a graduation cake for my friend Joyce's nephew Devon who just graduated from SUNY Cortland and is going on to St. Thomas School of Law. What an exciting day for their family!

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday!
