The Baby Shower.... or as my aunt called it the "Halfway Party" since I am exactly halfway through the pregnancy and we didn't do gifts at the party... was spectacular. Everyone loved the cake! We decided on a layered pink and blue cake from Blackbird Bakery on Bainbridge Island. Really it was fantastic. It had dark chocolate frosting and a layer of raspberry fruit filling between the pink and blue layers.
I also made a wonderful Blue Cheese sauce that was a major hit. Everyone loved it! They put it on the steaks, the pasta, the deviled eggs... everything! LOL I knew it would be good, but I was surprised at how much of a hit it was. My mother and grandmother divided the remaining sauce to take home with them. I may just make another batch for Thanksgiving!
