It’s a virtual bridal shower for Sally! Our very good friend Sally from Sally’s Baking Addiction will be getting hitched in 2 months so a group of us have come together to throw her an amazing bridal shower. And you know I couldn’t come to the shower without something bright and color, just like all of Sally’s gorgeous sprinkled goodies!

Sally is one of the sweetest girls that I know, and she’s a hell of a baker. Every time I see her  funfetti donuts or lemon blueberry cake blowing up on Pinterest, I want to run to the kitchen and bake up a storm! And I could not be more thrilled for her that she is getting married. Sally – I truly wish you all the best with Kevin and Jude!

  11. When I was growing up, way back when, this was what our parents ordered for us when we all went out to dinner because it was eloquent and non-alcoholic. Although the were the same drink, little girls got a Shirley Temple and little boys got a Roy Rogers.
