Party Cakes

25 Apr

The latest issue of Better Homes & Gardens features lovely cakes in all shades of pink with sprinkles and ribbon buttercream. I know not everyone reads the magazine, so I had to share the beautiful photographs, recipes and how-to’s. Yes, they have a how-to on each frosting.

I think these would be perfect for a mother’s day cake, don’t you? Or any celebration cake. Plus, check out Food Network’s Frost by Numbers frosting tips, here.

Easter and Springtime Cookies

10 Apr

Hello again!

This past weekend I made some Easter and Spring themed cookies using my favorite and most delicious Sugar Cookie Recipe and Royal Icing Recipe (I add lemon extract).

These were taken with my camera phone, so the quality of image is not the best.

enjoy and happy baking!

I’m crazy in love…with Jump from Paper Bags!

2 Apr

Made of polyester and/or canvas, these bags look like they came straight out of a comic strip. The line is called Jump from Paper™  and created by Taipei-based design duo, Chay Su and Rika Lin.

Slogan: “Breaks away from boredom and takes you to a playful and imagination tour!”

I’ve never seen anything like this before. Have you? I just LOVE them. Creative, unique, different, colorful, CUTE. Yes. All of the above.

Check out their website for the full line here.
