Bridal shower dessert menu.

April 16, 2013

My BFF Kate’s bridal shower is the weekend, and her sister-in-law and I are putting the final touches on all the details. We’re ordering most of the food, but I’m doing the desserts, so I thought I’d share what’s on the menu here today in case you have a similar event coming up or are just looking for a delicious sweet treat to make:

We’re going to have fruit salad, so I don’t feel bad about not having a lemon bar or the like, and a l though I was originally on the fence about making the brownies—why, I don’t know—my boss’s recent comment that they were “the best thing [she’d] ever put in her mouth” and my friend Jenn’s assertion that everyone loves a brownie pushed me firmly into the “make them” category. (Not to mention that they’re a Smitten Kitchen recipe, so they’re inherently delicious.) Also, that coconut cake is a showstopper. I made it for a charity cake auction last year and it raised more than $600. It’s the real deal.
In other food news, over the weekend I ordered Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook, It’s All Good, which is focused on clean eating, and I’m looking forward to sharing how the treats in her cookbook stack up. Baked! with a healthy bent? Why not? (Full disclosure: This may be a controversial stance, but I am firmly a member of Team Gwyneth. I love her, even when I’m rolling my eyes at her. And this cookbook looks genuinely good.)
What’s your favorite thing you’ve baked recently?
P.S. You can find an index of Baked! recipes right here, if you’re so inclined.

    I’m Team Gwyneth as well, and also Team Brownie. Let me know how you like the cookbook! I’m anxious to hear how it stacks up, too. Best of luck with the hosting. You sound like the best party thrower 🙂
