Feel free to post any food recipies you have that would be good for a shower!


One 8oz package of cream cheese
One jar of salsa (buy whatever kind you like) i use mild
shredder cheese

spread the cream cheese out in a shallow pan evenly
then poor the salsa ontop of the cream chese and spread it out
sprinle the cheese over the top untill its covered and put it in the fridge!

You might want to take it out about 20 min before the guests arive so it can soften some. I used Scoops for chips because they're stronger but again use what kind you like best!


1 can of Strawberry Kiwi crystal light
3 2 liters of Ginger Ale

Mix them together and you have a wonderful punch! (It turns out a dark pink color)

Baby Shower Cakes
This recipe will make about 28 baby shower cakes

8 oz cornstarch
4 oz (˝ cup) superfine sugar
6 oz (1˝ sticks) butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoonful baking powder
1 tablespoonful milk
˝ teaspoonful vanilla extract
Pink food coloring
Blue food coloring
you will also need
A muffin pan lined with paper baking cups (paper cupcake liners).

Cooking Instructions
The butter for these little baby cakes needs to be soft, so you may need to take it out of the refrigerator several hours before baking. The eggs too should, ideally, be at room temperature.

Begin by putting the butter and sugar into a large bowl, then cream (beat) together until the mixture is light and fluffy. Next, beating well after each addition, add the eggs one at a time. Then add the milk and the cornstarch and beat for a further five to ten minutes. Now add the baking powder and the vanilla extract and mix well.

After this put half of the mixture into another bowl. To one bowl add enough pink food coloring to make the mixture look a definite pink, and mix. And to the second bowl add enough blue food coloring to make the mixture look a definite blue, and mix.

Then put one generous teaspoonful of the pink baby cake mixture into 14 paper baking cups and one generous teaspoonful of the blue mixture into another 14 paper baking cups.

Now lightly sprinkle the cakes with superfine sugar. And bake for about 15 to 20 minutes at 375°F.

If you know whether the baby is a boy or is a girl then you can, of course, make all the baby cakes blue or all the baby cakes pink.

Chippety Doodahs
For a baby shower, chips are a quick and easy finger food idea
- why not try them like this, with a dip?

And for the Dip
8 oz cream cheese
2˝ crushed cloves of garlic
4 scallions (green onions)
Salt and pepper to taste

Begin by finely chopping the scallions including the green part – this will add color. Then put the cream cheese the crushed garlic and the chopped scallion into a bowl.

Now just mash all the ingredients together until completely mixed, and then season with salt and pepper to taste.
