Baby Shower <3

My dear friend is having her firstborn in October and I am super excited! 🙂 On the first weekend of August, I had the pleasure to host her Baby Shower party at our place. The day was filled with laughter, friends, good food, and baby talk! 😀

Here are some photos of the shower:

I made my very first belly cake for the shower. It was interesting, but I think the outcome was great! Everyone was thrilled. I used a chocolate cake batter and a blueberry rich cream as filling. Yummy!

In addition to this cake I made Rocky Roads and Blueberry Muffins. All gluten-free!
We also had some cake-pops, candy, popcorn, salads, fruits, and a salmon-cheese pie.

We had some much fun, and the weather just pampered us! One happy godmother here  ❤

Have a nice week everyone!

Time for blueberries!

The summer time has gone really fast! My husband and I had the chance to enjoy some nice warm weathers during our mutual holiday. Now it is getting time to start thinking about work again! 😀

During our stay at our summer house, we noticed that the forest is literally FULL of blueberries and they are huge! Now our freezer is loaded with blueberries for the winter time. Of course, I had to try out some new recipes with blueberries in them. All of them were eaten before I even had a chance to photograph them, but the latest blueberry muffins I was able to capture in photos too.

These gluten-free and lactose-free muffins came out really soft and moist! Definitely a recipe to be used also in the future, maybe with a hint of cardamom added to the dough.
