Baby Shower Sweet Table

In May, I posted some baby shower cakes and announced my own baby news.  What comes next?  A baby shower sweet table for ME!
2 weeks ago, my mom and sister threw me a backyard baby shower and I had the pleasure to make the dessert table for my family and friends.  My sister, Yvonne, (who has a very creative blog called choo cha handmade that you have to check out!!) gave me this pinwheel design as inspiration.
To start off the dessert table, a 4-tier lemon butter cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream decorated with handmade sugarpaste pinwheels.
Handmade strawberry marshmallows, fondant decorated sugar cookies and strawberry vanilla cupcakes with strawberry buttercream.
... pinwheel sugar cookies and handmade vanilla bean marshmallows dipped in caramel and graham cracker crumbs.
Sweet n' salty boxed kettle corn, dark chocolate covered pretzels and mini-raspberry jam donut muffins (recipe from Cakes and Bakes NI blog).
One last thing... a lovely SURPRISE... our baby decided to arrive 3 weeks early.  So, 10 days ago, a healthy little 6lb girl named Sidney entered our lives.  We feel so lucky and it has been an amazing experience so far.  More next Tuesday - have a nice week!

Congratulations! It's possible that the baby couldn't wait any longer to taste the sweet goodies that mommy makes, and decided to come out early. :)

I like how your shower was outdoors in a backyard. Very different than the showers I am use to attending.

Congrats on baby Sidney. I hope you don't mind but Julie told me the news.
