Babyshower for Elanor

“She picked three berries and dropped them, kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk, in her small tin pail.”

With Upper Cut "Baby E" due shortly Upper Cut Cake gal, Jen was delighted to return the favour of a Baby Shower for Elanor. The theme was based on one of Elanor's favourite children's books, Blueberries for Sal. Elanor delights each summer on her trip home in picking and eating wild blueberries. Not forgetting the father-to-be, a Chicagoan football fan - Jen did her research and found that the local football team are the Bears!

The almond and lavender cake was surrounded by sweet treats including mini blueberry muffins and a bucketful of tea. Original chocolate and marshmallow Whoopie Pies (artfully shaped like bears) were a must for the Maine girl.

Good luck to the parents-to-be. Everyone is very much looking forward to meeting Baby E!
