And since Sean is not the only GF person there, I'm sending a small plate of GF peppermint brownies!

My husband has a co-worker who just moved here from Brazil with his pregnant wife. His department is having a baby shower to welcome the couple and their new little one due early December. I offered to make some cakes for the party. I thought a peppermint cake with pink candy cane filling would be the way to go because yes, the little one is a little girl! And who doesn't like chocolate and peppermint? I made a cute little onesie clothesline banner for the cutting cake and decorated the big cake (12x17!) with candy flowers. My ganache was soooo temperamental! It took forever to set up and then when it finally did, it was almost too firm all in a matter of 3 minutes. It's not as smooth as I'd like it but nobody who tastes it ever seems to mind.
