FINALLY....the recipe for those strawberry flowers :)

WOAH! So busy!! (and surprisingly not too badly with wedding stuff) :)

Since the ivites have been sent, Mom and Dad have received a steady flow of response cards. :) VERY exciting. Michael and I head to Northern VA (my home) for the weekend for a shower. We are so excited :)
I had my bachelorette party this past weekend and I had a BLAST! I will blog about it as soon as my bmaids send me more pictures that they took :)


Many have asked....sorry it has taken so long. These strawberries are from the AROUND THE CLOCK shower that my mom and I hosted for one of my best friends. Enjoy!

Strawberry flowers with coconut cream
(Makes 2 ¾ cups)

1 (3.4 oz) package coconut cream instant pudding mix
¾ c sour cream
¼ c heavy whipping cream
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
¾ c confectioners’ sugar
1 t coconut extract
1 qt strawberries, washed and dried
Garnish: toasted coconut

In a small bowl, combine pudding mix, sour cream, and cream. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined.
Reduce speed to low; add cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and coconut extract beating until well combined. Cover and refrigerate 30 min.
With stem side down, make 2 vertical cuts from tip to ¼ inch from stem end of strawberry. Gently spread apart to form 4 petals. Spoon or pipe coconut filling into each strawberry. Garnish with toasted coconut if desired.

Have a great day!!
