Literally speaking – a bar full of candy. That was the final destination that I arrived at for Brook’s Baby Shower favor. Sure, I wanted to do little sweetie pies…but then I thought, heck, why not serve those AT the shower for dessert! That way I don’t have to spend money on a cake…which by the way, I am not a cake person. I am definitely more of a brownie, cookie, icecream kinda gal. And thinking about trekking to the grocery store and spending money on cake is just enough to get me in a mood…a bad one. Another hangup with the pies were those mini little tins. I just know that there is someone
stupid distracted enough to throw the whole pie, tin and all, in the microwave – creating some sort of fire disaster. Yikes! Bower Power doesn’t want credit for anything that requires a 911 call.
Besides, I figure that tricker-treaters are just the ticket for candy leftovers. I don’t know that any costumed kids would be allowed to eat the neighbor’s baked goods 🙁
I was so excited to get started that I bought all the sweetums at Target last night on sale. Then I set to work getting them in matchy glass jars for the big day. I will have little baggies on hand for the guests to dig in. This also helps with satisfying the children that are coming – nothing says ‘Baby Showers Rock’ to a seven year old like a sack full of sweets.
Whatta doya thinks? Did I make the right decision? Should I go back to my original plans? Will the sweetie pies still be a hit? Or is candy always a good way to go? Can you tell that I am getting more nervous?!?
