Long time no post! I know, it’s been a while. If you’ve been following along with me lately then you already know that my very generous mother dragged me along to Mexico for some much needed R&R. 🙂 I thought about scheduling a post or two while I was gone, but I had no idea what the wifi would be like or if some disaster would occur. Also, I was extremely busy throwing together this gorgeous cake right before my[Read more]

A Whimsical Birthday Cake

Goooood morning everyone! Today I have for you a cake that I actually made last month but kept all to myself until now. Greedy, I know. 😈 In all seriousness, I actually made this cake for my neighbor’s mother’s birthday, and since I was in Austin that weekend I didn’t even get to taste it! I heard it was a hit though. As a matter of fact, I was told it was the best cake I ever made. 😋  (Don’t[Read more]

Hi friends! Last week I had every intention of attempting my somewhat-horrible buttercream marble cake design again, but at the last minute I decided to switch it up and attempt a scrape cake instead.  I’ve been completely obsessed with all of the ones I’ve been seeing on Instagram lately by amazing cake decorators such as donttellcharles (#unachievablegoals :P). These cakes are characterized by their scraped “stucco” sort of look to them using bright contrasting colors. They are pretty similar to the (also[Read more]

Two Last Minute Valentine’s Day Cake Ideas!

russian vday 7

My goodness, it feels like it’s been weeks since I’ve posted! Things have been kind of hectic around here lately because I’ve spent the last two weekends in Austin, TX. My in-laws rented a house there for the month so we’ve been painting the town red. I keep bringing my laptop with me thinking that I’ll surely post before bed, but  we do so much hiking (and eating!) that I always end up just browsing Reddit for 30 minutes and then passing[Read more]

Happy Saturday, folks! Can you believe that January is almost over already? It’s fricken crazy! I’m thinking that it’s possibly the month only seems short because I didn’t take my tree down until the 15th. But still. 😛 I’m ready for February. I am in full Valentine’s Day mode. I know, I know…it’s an overrated commercial holiday that zaps ours wallets and we should all love each other every day anyway. But Valentine’s Day desserts are just too cute to pass up.[Read more]
