We’ve reached mid-October. Seriously, why is this month going by so fast? I don’t even have my costume yet! Do you know what you’re being for Halloween? I plan to go as my gymnastics idol, the one and only Aly Raisman. But not just any Aly Raisman, the “I just killed this fricken floor routine and now I’m going to cry” Aly Raisman.  First I cried while watching it live. Then I cried like 80 more times whenever I watched it on Youtube. And[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]

Fairy Galaxy Drip Cake Tutorial

I admit it. I have no idea what to call this cake besides “pretty.” The deep blues and purples paired with the gold leaf certainly remind me of those galaxy cakes  floating around Pinterest and Instagram. Then again, this cake seems far more light and feminine, with the delicate petals of the miniature orchids reminding me quite a bit of magical fairy wings. I’ve given up: this is my fairy galaxy drip cake. I don’t care if it doesn’t make sense. The[Read more]

Two-Tier Rainbow Striped Mini Cake!

I’ve made quite a few bright and colorful cakes recently. That made me wonder: Am I in my “rainbow” period? Am I like Picasso? Probably not. I’m just doing my best to squeeze all the summer I can into my decorating before it’s over. I’m sure you know by now that I love stripes. Plus, Cyndi Lauper stopped by my imagination and reminded me that she can see my true colors shining through, and that’s why she loves me! This cake is another super[Read more]

Sparkle Dust Stenciling Technique

A few days ago I mentioned how one tier of a wedding cake I made recently was decorated by painting gold luster dust over a stencil. I decided to try this technique again, but this time multiple luster dust colors. And this time, I brought pictures! The luster dust set I used is one that my mother bought me for Christmas by a company called Oh! Sweet Art Corp. Here is my mini review. Pro: Lots of shimmery colors. Con: You[Read more]
