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! Did everyone have a fantastic weekend?

It was definitely on its last leg. Besides that, I only did a bit of baking this week. My neighbor’s birthday is a few days before mine and he[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]

When I Drip, You Drip, We Drip

My neighbor’s fantastically generous mother picked this cake stand up for me during a shopping expedition, and I’m totally in love! Teal is way up there on my list of favorite colors, and so bright and beautiful that I just know you’ll be seeing a lot more cakes decorated specifically for this stand. So a very special thanks to her since I know she reads this blog. Muah! It’s important to note, however, that I do have a very dark past[Read more]
