Strawberry Lemonade Cake

What’s more refreshing than lemonade on a warm summer day? Strawberry lemonade, of course! There’s something about blending the two flavors together that creates summertime magic, and when you incorporate them into cake, it’s just downright delicious! I think this Strawberry Lemonade cake is the perfect summertime treat, whether you’re celebrating with a shindig or just want to whip up something tasty and pretty to look at. I owe all of the inspiration behind creating this recipe to the Pink Lemonade sprinkle mix by SpinklePop, because just one look at them sparked the idea to incorporate refreshing flavor of pink...

Camouflage Sprinkle Macarons

As is common during the summer months, it rained cats and dogs in Houston last week. While that doesn’t seem typically newsworthy, when it comes to making macarons, it can be the difference between a huge fail and a celebration of success. If you’re new to making these decadent french cookies, don’t let fear rain on your baking parade (see what I did there? I'm so punny, ha!). A bespoke mixture of green, brown and gold sprinkles surrounding a rich buttercream filling is sure to bring sunshine to even the gloomiest day. What are macarons? Before you whip up a batch...

Tequila Lime Buttercream Frosting

This week i'm working on some boozy cupcakes for a Jimmy Buffet-esque party my family is throwing for some industry people...and by industry I mean oil and gas...because unfortunately I still have to work for "the man"...*le sigh*. Any-who, the point is that I'm having a blasty-blast experimenting with new flavors and recipes for these cupcakes. The first one that came to mind was a margarita cupcake....this is Texas after all! I usually keep these posts very short and for good reason: I don't want to lose your attention. I actually have quite a lot to say about this recipe that I worked...

Water Color Buttercream Cake with Sprinkles

It’s my firm belief that sprinkles are for so much more than cake….but let’s be real… I’m a cake decorator! As such, it should come to you as no surprise that my first creation with these little lovelies was a super fun watercolor buttercream cake. But not just any cake….a piñata cake! That’s right! Cut this baby open and sprinkles come gushing out of the middle.   I also took this opportunity to try out a passion fruit buttercream that I read about over at Kara’s Couture Cakes.
