Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party #16

Happy Weekend!  I hit the ground running when I returned from London.  We are hosting a wedding Open House for a friend tomorrow at our home so there was a lot of cake baking,decorating and crafting going on at my house this week.  I kept my kitchen humming yesterday – eleven cakes!  So watch for some cake recipes coming up on the blog soon.

This was before the real mess!!  Just imagine what it looked like after 11 cakes!!!


We are having a cake buffet for the open house along with a fruit buffet.  Here is the set up for the cake buffet.  All it needs now is cake!


Now for this week’s topped viewed link – I am totally drooling over this one.   This Braided Lemon Loaf from Twigg Studios looks amazing.  As you know I am a total sucker for anything lemon and this looks divine!


Here are a few of my favorite picks from this week’s linky party.

I would totally love to be  served breakfast in bed on this darling tray from Lemon Tree Dwelling on Mother’s Day or just about any day!

DIY Breakfast in Bed 1

I wouldn’t mind if some of these chocolate dipped potato chips from The Moody Fashionista were on that tray!!


The weather is warming up and salad weather is here.  This Asian Ramen Noodle Salad from Essentially Eclectic looks amazing.


I also found myself drooling over this Tortilla Chip Crusted Chicken Salad from Half Baked Harvest.  This girl knows how to cook.


We are in the party mode at our house so I especially enjoyed checking out this darling Lips and Mustache Party at The Royal Cook.  So many fun ideas.  Be sure and check it out.


Let’s get this week’s party started!!

It’s easy – all you have to do is link up YOUR recipes, crafts, ideas, projects or fun posts to share.
Please no Etsy shops, giveaways or advertisements. Please link directly to the blog post, not your blog.
I’d love for you to share something new that you haven’t shared at previous Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Parties!

 After you link up please take the time to visit some of the other links (at least two please) and HAVE FUN!

Next Saturday I’ll be back to share some of the links that caught my eye and you can link up again
