Hello, friends! Here’s a recipe for you that is long overdue: American Buttercream! Do you have any idea how difficult it is to take a sexy picture of American buttercream? I don’t know how people on Pinterest do it, but I highly suspect some shenanigans are going on. So instead of a picture of it in the bowl, here it is on a cake! A cake that you can make with this recipe. 🙂 As much as I love the[Read more]

Greetings, friends! How’s spring treating you so far?  Do you remember my horrible marble birthday cake from back in January?  The one with the…how do I put this…veins and blobs? ::shudders:: Are you going to make me post it again to refresh your memory? I really don’t want it to be the first thing people see when they visit this page. 🙁 OKAY FINE. If I go from 5 followers to 3 followers then this is all your fault: As Cher from[Read more]

Happy Saturday, folks! Can you believe that January is almost over already? It’s fricken crazy!

But Valentine’s Day desserts are just too cute to pass up.[Read more]

Coral Cake with Cascading Teal Flowers

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a cake tutorial! The reason is because my previous two cakes have been made out of fondant, and well, fondant and I don’t go together too well. Naw’m sayin’? I had one somewhat disastrous fondant cake and then one that actually came out pretty decent. I plan to post about them both, of course, but in the meantime I made this one and… Me right now. I just find it so fricken pretty aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! So[Read more]

Hello lovelies! I was browsing Youtube last Tuesday when I stumbled across someone’s video for one of the prettiest cakes I’d ever seen in my life. I totally planned to steal it use it as inspiration for this week’s cake, but I needed to order a special tool off of Amazon first and their two-day shipping wasn’t so two-day after all. Blah! So, after that plan fell through I basically had to scramble to come up with a new design idea. And[Read more]
