Back when we announced that we were expecting I had every intention of baking and being at the markets right up until the very end. While I’ve been slowing things down a little as we get close to my due date this weekend showed me that I need to practice some more self-care than I […]

May 25th, 2015 by Gemma | Comments Off on Alice In Wonderland Baby Shower

There’s nothing more fun than being our own clients! We usually use it as an excuse to test out new recipes and go a little overboard. Our baby shower cake was no exception.
