And the foodie theme was Pecan Praline. We had Pecan Praline ice cream and Butter Pecan cupcakes complete with home made candied pecans. Here are the pics.
There is this brilliant way of serving ice cream. (Check out www.realsimple.com for other exciting hosting ideas) A few hours before or even the night before scoop the ice cream into paper muffin liners and re-freeze. Then at cake serving time all you have to do is serve up each paper liner, no messy ice cream scoops to deal with at all. It maybe a little extra work before the party starts but well worth it later on. And best of all if you are doing this by yourself it is a breeze so you can look like the brilliant hostess that you are. Easy as pre-served ice cream. Whoever thought of this one... brilliant!
