So my wonderful friend Dawn is in a theater group called 'TheSpyAnts' and they perform at Ford Theater with two other theater groups. Last night they all had this ginormous fundraiser to raise money for the upcoming season.
The new play that TheSpyAnts are doing is set in the 1950's and it's called 'Bobrauschenbergamerica.' (I know, right?) Dawn asked if I would like to do a series of mini desserts with that theme in mind. OH MY GOSH, I AM RIDICULOUS ABOUT THEMES!! Being as how I was born in the wrong era, I thought this would be wonderfully fun! YAY!! AND I got to dress up like a 1950's mom. FUN!
So here are some of the results. I was pretty rushed so I wasn't really able to take my time with the camera. Hope you like them regardless! :)
First things first, I made little mini lemon meringues with my new blow torch! YAY!!!
My roommate took this picture for me. It kinda looks like a lightsaber. COOL.
They're just so cute, darn it! I love mini desserts!
It was a tad more 'swanky' than I anticipated. The background in this picture is a fountain. The whole event was really pretty & the weather was absolutely gorgeous.
