Our Baby Shower!

We had a great baby shower this weekend to celebrate the upcoming arrival of our first child, our baby dragon Lily!  One of my favorite parts of the shower was the dessert station!  The color theme was pink, light green and white, and so we made the desserts to match!
Our beautiful dessert tower set up by Chi Tu and Alvina!
I made green tea and rose macarons, and my cousin (also the host of the shower) made vanilla mini cupcakes with green tea buttercream.  I made the little fondant flower decorations to go on top of the cupcakes, and Chi Hai's cutie patootie daughter, my niece, helped place the flowers on the cupcakes, she's a natural!  Chi Hai also baked vanilla cake pops with the remaining batter from the cupcakes, and then my friend Alvina and I dipping them in pink chocolate candy melts.  Then we all added the white chocolate stripes to them. 
Our dragon lily's cake! We ordered a mixed berry cake from Givral Bakery in Westminster, CA.  I love that bakery, it's my favorite also because we used them for our wedding, and any other special occasion!  They did the light green piping along the side of the cake and added the green ribbon and bow for the border.  I made the little baby dragon and the broken green egg shell to place on top of the cake.  Khoa bought spray light pink roses that I cut up to place on the cake as well.  I am 3 weeks away from my due date, so this was one last baking and decorating gig for a very long time!  I would have made sugar flowers, but why do more work than I have to, plus, nothing looks better than the real thing!
I would like to also give special thanks to Khoa, without him, I would not have all these wonderful things in life to look forward too!  I love you baby cakes!!  We had so much and it was great to see everyone before our precious baby gets here.  We felt so much love from everyone and we are extremely blessed and lucky to have such a wonderful family.  We are so excited for what’s to come, we can’t wait to meet her!!!!!  I will now go on my official maternity leave for at least a couple months!  I'll be back in no time to make more lovely creations for all of you to enjoy!  Until then, I have a great day!!!
