My friend Esther Saada sent me these fabulous pictures from her daughter Paulina’s bridal shower. I’m sure that you will enjoy the creativity and detail that went into this sweet and stylish event.- Marlene M.
“Paulina’s bridal shower theme was sparked by a Dress A Bride charity bake-off. Esther Chrem, (Paulina’s sister in law) called Paulina and asked if Paulina would like to come over and help come up with the theme of a cake for Esther to design for the charity. They spoke about what could be a cool, sharp new theme and they came up with “Fashion 2010″. The bake off consisted of 4 teams of bakers. Each designed a beautiful cake, but Esther Chrem won first place!
During the bake-off the attendees had the opportunity to bid on a cake, so of course I bid on the one that Esther baked and I won the bid! The bottom of the cake was a leopard animal print. The second layer was black studded , and the next layer was a red Hermes crocodile bag. The top tier was a black studded Louboutin shoe. In the close up picture you can see that Esther even wrote out the name inside the shoe and also made the red heel just like the original shoe! Surrounding the cake are fashion trends from 2010 such as the fingerless glove and the jeweled bib necklace. The cake was done with edible fondant, edible silver beads and edible rock candy.
To coordinate with the theme of the shower , Esther created mini red Hermes handbag cookies, mini jeweled bib necklaces, and an assortment of shoe cookies. To pick up the red in the cake, I ordered flowers in red, and draped a leopard silk tablecloth topper over the table. I also scattered some pages from Vogue magazine, and photos of designer shoes and placed them around the table.Hope you enjoy these pics as much as I enjoyed hosting the shower!” Esther Saada
