Fat Bastard: I ate a baby. Baby: the other, other white meat. Baby: it's what's for dinner.

I spent the weekend making babies. Not like that, ew.

I made desserts for a baby shower - 50 cupcakes, 100+ cookies. Looking back I probably should have asked for help with prep work, but no one was available so I had to do it all on my own...

Usually I'm fine - I've had to do more than by myself before, but these particular items were VERY labor intensive.

Being the lame perfectionist that I am, it took longer than it should have. I made 'Sleeping Baby' cupcakes, neapolitan cookies and Burger Bite Cookies.

In typical Jenn-fashion, I went overboard and made little origami cups to hold the Burgers so they looked like they were wrapped. Ingenious! Except that I hate origami and I had to make 50 of them. Not so genius.

I think people get the most excited when they SMELL the baby cupcakes. It's that familiar sweet scent that people can't quite wrap their minds around. Yes, all the babies are sleeping under Starburst blankies that I rolled out by hand and no my arms may never be the same again. Ow.

Everything looked great when it was all laid out. Good luck to the parents-to-be!

You really did go overboard this time but those baby cupcakes are absolutely the cutest things I've ever seen. I'm sure they will/were be a/a hit! I've had the hamburgers and honestly, that is the treat from heaven. I love those things!!!

always remember it is better to look mavolous than it is to feel mavolous. at least it looks mavolous.

They look beautiful!
Have you considered trying a pasta machine to roll out the starburst blankets?
Or do you think it would gum up?

Why starbursts? Why not fruit roll ups? You could cut out several blankets at once.
