I don’t know about you, but every time I go to a JOANN store I end up wandering down all the aisles and tossing things into my cart that I did not expect (but am pleasantly surprised!) to find. Things like the perfect throw pillows for my couch, pretty pots for my plant babies, and just the other day, I wandered down the yarn aisle and stumbled upon this wool yarn by a brand called Buttercream. It felt like fate, because I want to learn to knit irl and was in need of some Fall cake inspiration. I may not be able to knit a cozy sweater yet, but I sure can make a buttercream cake look knitted with the right piping tips!Read More
I’m a tea lover all year round, but once Fall hits and things start to get cozy, chai is a staple in my tea cabinet. The aromatic spices in a cup of chai are unreal and totally reminiscent of Autumn. So when I decided to bake up those spices in cake form, not only did my kitchen smell amazing, but this Spiced Vanilla Chai Cake tasted like an Autumnal dreamscape! It’s the perfect cake for welcoming the changes of the season whether you’re a tea lover or not.Read More
Something totally magical happened this week – I got the opportunity to do an Instagram takeover for the one and only Wilton! They’ve been my favorite supplier of cake decorating tools for forever, so to say I was elated would be an understatement. For my takeover tutorial, I showed how to create a whimsical birthday cake that’s as easy to make as it is eye-catching, and I want to share it in blog post form for you here. This fun cake design will make any birthday feel extra special:
This tutorial is originally a guest post I created for SprinklePop’s blog. It’s too good not to re-share over here, because this Unicorn sprinkle blend is downright magical and plays such a big role in making this party cake a showstopper.
Unicorns are arguably the best mythical creatures of all. It’s no wonder that they became a major trend in the cake and party planning world! You’ve probably seen plenty of unicorn cakes in your social media feeds, the most popular look being the ones where the entire cake looks like a unicorn head. I thought I’d switch it up a little bit with this one, especially because I got my hands on a bottle of this Unicorn sprinkle mix by SprinklePop! They’d look amazing on any cake design, but I really love how they enhance the magical colors and textures going on in this unicorn cake:
Last week, I got to help plan a party. Not just any party though, there was a surprise Mean Girls theme involved! I was hyperventilating with excitement from the time we started planning to the time of the big reveal. I’m pretty sure that Sue from SNL is my kindred spirit.
