Shhh. . .I have a secret. Someone is having a baby. . . and we are having a party to celebrate! Oh, and YOU’RE invited!

Oh, who am I kidding? The word is OUT so let’s get LOUD! You know why, because there’s A LOT of us at this party!

I’m so happy to be a part of this special virtual baby shower, celebrating the newest {upcoming} addition to the Clark Family! Katie Clark, from Clark’s Condensed and The Blog Help is going to be welcoming their second son at the end of September! How exciting is that?

I first ran into Katie at the Online Blog Conference last year and was so impressed by her! Let’s just say she is the technical guru of our Online BlogCon FB group and she is always willing to help her fellow bloggers when they’re at a loss when it comes to code, updates, you name it.

We’ve all come together to throw her a shower filled with delicious food, fun activities and thoughtful gifts. If you’re going to be planning or attending a baby shower in the near future, THIS is the place to get some great recipes and ideas for making it a complete success!

For Katie today, I made some sweet and colorful Sugar Cookie Fruit Cups. This is such a wonderful dessert to serve at parties, especially parties with a whole lotta’ ladies!

There’s just something magical about putting little pieces of fruit in or on top of desserts. As soon as you do, to a female, it becomes something “safe” to eat. Something that won’t blow their diet out of the water. Never mind the marshmallow creme or the cookie. We don’t talk about that. 😉

I topped these delicious fruit cups with strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, blueberries and mangoes! So fresh, sweet and wonderful! I think those three words also describe a precious newborn. Was I not right about these being perfect for a baby shower?

The creme inside the cups is SO easy to make. It’s a combination of cream cheese and marshmallow creme. You know where I learned about that heavenly combination? From watching The Pioneer Woman, of course. Ree is the best!
