Behind the Scenes Look at Ginger's Shower

As you all know I am totally obsessed with pies of all sorts. A few weeks ago I make mini pumpkin pie tartlettes with a maple glaze and they were so amazing so for Ginger's shower I thought it would be really cute to make lemon pie tartlettes. I am not a big fan of processed ingredients so I found THIS RECIPE for creamy lemon pie that was quiet simple and it turned out very nice. For one batch, the one pictured below I did place a single raspberry in the tartlettes but I will say that it made the pies a bit too full and a few of them overflowed so I would recommend just doing the lemon filling without the raspberry inside. 
 I tripled my usual crust RECIPE that I love and it made about 40 mini tartlettes. 
I made a very simple glaze to top the pies with. Here's the recipe:
Mix together:
3 cups of confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest

I got my inspiration and RECIPE from the amazing Bakerella blog. I followed the recipe exactly but I was not able to dry my pops standing up as she suggested because they were too heavy and would slip off the stick. However, after they were dipped in chocolate and dried in the fridge I could then proceed to stand them up for the cute cake pop effect but the tops were flat were I have let them dry. One tiny snafu but otherwise they came out great!

I got the tutorial for the Pom Poms HERE on Martha Stewart and as I said before, these were very easy to make and were beautiful. They would be great for any celebration in different colors. 

I bought the paper straws from The Creative Party Place. And the gift tags that say "Ginger" were very cute but I wasn't really impressed with the quality of the cards stock do I'm not going to post were I bought those.

I hope you enjoyed Ginger's Shower!!! If you would like to see all the photos, please click HERE to view my initial posting!!
