St. Patrick’s Day Cake!

Monday, March 14th, 2011

St. Patrick’s Day is only a few days away but there are still plenty of fun and creative projects to do in time. I personally like ones that involve at least a little sugar and this one definitely delivers!

I can hardly think of anything better than seven lucky layers of yummy cake! Amanda, of I Am Baker, put this beautiful shamrock cake together by gradually adding food coloring to each layer before cooking.

Wether for St. Patrick’s Day or not, I love the look of a gradated cake and hope to make one of my own some day. Truly stunning!

Baby Shower In Blue: Part II

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

For Part II of a Baby Shower In Blue I wanted to share some more details. With the help of my husband, we made a four-tiered white cake with lemon curd filling and a lemon butter cream frosting. For the topper, I ordered some blank nesting dolls and hand painted them to match the illustrations from the invites. It took some trial and error in painting, but I think the final result turned out pretty well.

Each seat at the table had a crossword puzzle based on Allison and Ryan and words related to pregnancy and parenthood. The game was a great way to get people mingling and having fun. To add a bit of whimsy to the table, old fashioned grey and white striped straws adorned each glass. Lastly, for favors, I made little sewn envelopes based on these by Rebecca Thuss. I put wrapped shortbread cookies inside and sealed with a baby pin. Be sure to check back tomorrow; I’ll be sharing the How-To for the fabric favor envelopes!

Taste The Rainbow!

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Yesterday’s post featuring that adorable striped sweater from Anthropologie reminded me of a picture I had saved a bit ago from Whisk Kid. How amazing is this rainbow cake?! Having just recently attempted to make a tiered cake myself, I know what an incredible challenge all those layers can be, so I’m doubly impressed. What I still can’t wrap my brain around is that frosting! How did she manage to make it so darn smooth?! The colors are equally as impressive and bright – wowza! Now if only I could get a taste through the screen…
