Legend's baby shower

This is the first time I've ever been invited to a baby shower and was totally at a loss at what it really was. For those of you that are not American, a baby shower is like a Christening party but a month or so before the little tyke actually arrives!

Jewels and Tyler are having a baby boy in about 6 weeks time. She wanted a massive co-ed barbeque so the boys were all as confused as I was!

It was a fun afternoon round at Sharon's house with enough food to feed the 5,000. Sharon provided the chicken and I made a tasty fat free marinade for it. We tried so hard to stick to our diet - only failing when we both saw the chocolate cake.
Those of you that know me, I'm not really into cake, but after a week of grilled chicken and steamed veggies, it looked fantastic.
We looked at the damn cake for ages. Then we found out who made it - Jen from Casa Picasso, famous for her desserts. Ooooooooooooo the dielemma................
So we each had a piece - and trust me, it was totally divine, it didn't taste like chicken or steamed veggies at all! Wonderful. I must say, neither of us had a drop to drink either - we have decided we have nerves of steel.Poor Sharon and Cindy - no fun at giant feast barbeque.........
Lovely orange-chocolate cake made by Jen at Casa Picasso

Sharon and Cindy busted scarfing down cake

Molly also loves cake!
