Adventures at Fantasy Frostings & My Sister the Bride
My sister, Karley and her husband, Jon just celebrated their 1 year Wedding Anniversary! I'm so happy for the two of them and the way they have chosen to do life together and grow together. They have had a big year full of transitions and changes since the day they said "I do". They moved back "home" to Oregon after living in Orange County for the last 3 years, they transitioned to new positions in their jobs that transferred them, and they have just bought a house that is being built and they should get to move in any day now! BIG first year of marriage in my opinion, but it's nothing like the trying times that pull you closer together.
Last summer, life with the Molzahn family (especially us girls) was all wedding with Bridal showers, Bachelorette Parties, and of course the wedding planning and beautiful wedding itself. Karley had three showers, one for her friends in California and two in Oregon with her lifelong friends and family. It was busy but so much fun and of course memorable.
I had the honor as Karley's Maid of Honor to plan a shower, I planned the California one. Our Aunt Diane, the hippest Aunt I know (no disresepect to my other's they have their own best qualities) helped me co-host this shower at her gorgeous penthouse over the water in Laguna Beach. Karley chose polka dots & purple and yellow for her details of the shower and she wanted to have a salad bar, mashed potato bar, and dessert bar... catch the theme? ;) The food was a great highlight of the day (next to the view), but the dessert bar was our favorite detail.
Our friends at Fantasy Frostings in Pasadena invited us to their bakery so that we could be hands on and create the sweet treats for my sister's bridal shower, it was sooo much fun! Karley, our mom, and friend Viv went to Pasadena the night before the shower to create our masterpiece of a dessert bar. Mr. & Mrs. Frostings (Earl & Leslie) taught us some fun tricks in the bakery, and they even cleared a section for me to create a gluten free sweetie pies that I could enjoy! Luckily, our adventures were captured on video...

As you can tell we had a lot of fun inside the bakery! For the record, they're name isn't Fantasy Frostings for nothing, I Love their frosting!
And the Finished Product of Karley's California Bridal Shower:
The Dessert Bar included cake pops, strawberry shortcake shooters, mini Key Lime pies, Gluten Free Sweetie Pies, Red Velvet Cupcake, and a divine Cake!
*Gluten Free Tip: I had my own Sweetie Pies in a separate container in the kitchen to avoid cross-contamination and left the rest out for display.
