Baby Shower

My wonderful friends decided to throw me a baby shower and so last Sunday afternoon, I headed over to Charlotte's house where I was assured there would be lots of delicious food and great company.  As always, the girls didn't disappoint.  I hadn't realised they were all such fantastic cooks actually - I am severely lacking in this department and need to practice because my baking is usually fairly inedible.  I have successully baked one batch of cupcakes but have tried many, many times!

Anyway, when I arrived, the smell of chocolate and scones was in the air.  As it was a lovely day, we all sat outside stuffing our faces and enjoying a long overdue catch up.  It reminded me how close we all are, considering we don't see each other nearly as often as I would like.  I should make more of an effort really to try and get us all together more often. 

So after a little while of chilling and chatting, Charlotte said that we should head inside to make the cake.  I couldn't believe there was going to be more sweet stuff!  So in we go and there's baby clothes and accessories all over the floor.  Needless to say I was a little confused.  It turned out that Charlotte and the girls had decided to make me a nappy cake!  We then spent some time rolling up nappies and vests, using packs of wipes to hold layers together and tying everything off with string and ribbon to make this:

Like I said, such wonderful friends :)
