Delicious Homemade Sprinkles Tutorial

I've seen homemade sprinkles before, but the only ones I've seen have been made with royal icing, piped into lines, and then broken into smaller pieces.  It's cute, but not quite what I wanted to create for my homemade sprinkle experiment.  I wanted something more regular, and also with a more distinct flavor.  It also sounded rather tedious to make the royal icing version.

Chocolate Lollipop Happy Birthday Cake Topper Tutorial

I've been crushing on Katherine Sabbath (an amazingly creative, fun, Australian cake decorator) for a while now, and I thought it was high time that I tried making her style of cake.  And I happen to be celebrating a friend's birthday today, so I had the perfect excuse to bake a cake!  Not that I need an excuse, but it helps.

Faux Spring Floral Branches Tutorial for an Easter Flower Arrangement

I miss living in a green place--a place with defined seasons.  Sure, the Arizona desert has its own beauty, but I miss the lushness of fresh green life bursting forth in the spring.  Forsythia, and lilacs, and apple trees in full blossom.

German Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches Tutorial

I had the BEST idea today.  I had leftover German chocolate cake filling from my German chocolate bon bons project, and it just came to me:  German chocolate ice cream sandwiches!

But would the reality be as good as I thought the idea might be?  Yes.  YES, I say.  And even better than I imagined.

German Chocolate Bon Bon Candy Recipe and Tutorial

I'm not usually much of a fan of icing, but I have to admit that I absolutely LOVE the frosting/filling on German chocolate cake.  That gooey, caramely, coconut pecan mixture is absolutely amazing. 

 So why did it take me so long to think of using the German chocolate cake frosting as a filling for chocolate bon bons?  I've wasted years of my life without these!

I love beautiful gift wrapping!  And I really love it when it gives you a little hint at what might be inside the package, like this boho style gift packaging.

Those dreamy peach and neutral colors, the feathers, the mixed materials of lace and leather and feathers...  and of course, a gorgeous wrapping paper from Rifle Paper Co.
