Our dear friend over at Wannabe a Country Cleaver has gone and got engaged to the love of her life. The blogging community could not sit idly by without acknowledging her upcoming nuptials.
So here we are with a surprise virtual bridal shower!
I’m not even sure what that means, but I know it involves lots of food, booze, and love. If you haven’t already checked out Megan’s culinary journey on her blog, you should go there now…girl is ridiculously creative and takes fantastic food pics.
I decided to get really crafty for this party (I know, I had a total break from reality and decided to craft. Move over, Martha) by making cheesecake-stuffed strawberries.
Shockingly, these little bites were extremely easy to make. These are perfect for a party because even though they only took 20 minutes to whip up, it looks like you spent all day in the kitchen. Plus, you can easily pop one into your mouth on the way to the champagne bar…I’m assuming all virtual bridal showers have champagne bars, no?
Grab a bunch of strawberries (1 carton), wash ‘em, and hull ‘em out so there is a little valley in each.
Whip together your 8 oz. cream cheese (I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and no one was the wiser), 4 Tbsp. powdered sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla. Combine them and place in a pastry decorating bag. If you’re like me, you’ll usually put the frosting in a gallon ziplock and ask the nice lady at the grocery store bakery department to give you free frosting tips.
Then grab n’ stuff.
Or just grab your strawberries, dunk them into the frosting bowl, and have a party by yourself. These bites are so good, you’ll want to celebrate!
Megan, I had so much fun with this virtual surprise party. I hope you had fun too! Wishing you the happiest future!
