Happy National Sprinkle Day (in the USA)!

Tip: The BEST rainbow sprinkles can be found in the ice cream section of Giant Food (that’s Stop & Shop for my NY/NJ friends). Good quality and value. Not sponsored, though I am declaring myself President of the Giant Rainbow Sprinkle Fan Club.

It’s wedding season & I’ve been thinking about the fun wedding cakes I’ve made over the years. This was one of my first weddings and was a unique request to match the Texas meets Jersey theme. (New Jersey is “The Garden State” IYKYK.)

It's WORLD baking day!

It's no secret that I ❤️ baking! I'm always amazed at what simple ingredients like flour, butter, and sugar can become. 🥰

I started my decorating journey at a Michaels Stores Wilton Cake Decorating class in Paramus, NJ way back in 2009! I started decorating cookies in 2021. I always love learning new decorating methods & trying out new tools & skills.

These cookies were part of my mom's 70th birthday celebration. I made royal icing transfer coffee cups & added them to the tops of mini sugar cookies.

The cake photo is my FIRST EVER decorated cake!

Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or dessert although I find myself eating a bite every time I walk through the kitchen regardless of the time of day.

The tips provided in the note (like whipping the egg whites first and using the same bowl for the rest of the recipe) help make this recipe less fussy than it seems at first glance.

On a less controversial note, the swan cookie & gold accents are my favorite parts of this cookie set.

I’m not sure of the question, but sprinkles are the answer!

🔥 tip: Giant Food rainbow sprinkles from the ice cream section (not the baking section) are where it’s at - good color mix & quality, & great price for the size (Giant = Stop & Shop for my NY/NJ peeps) #notsponsored

I love making cakes! It’s a wonderful feeling to create something unique & delicious for a celebration!

I especially liked how the clients thoughtfully made their custom bar mitzvah cake request with symbolism in mind - the bottom tier is more “kid flavors and design” & the top tier is more “adult flavors & design” - representing the transition from childhood into adulthood. (Check out the list ⬇️ for all the details.)

Top tier
✡️ chocolate olive oil cake recipe from smitten kitchen
✡️ mocha frosting recipe from The Pioneer Woman - Ree Drummond
✡️ Swiss meringue buttercream recipe from Style Sweet
✡️ Cake Craft USA cake drip
✡️ Betty Crocker silver sugar cupcake gems
✡️ cake topper from Burke Makes Stuff

Bottom tier
✡️ best birthday cake recipe from Smitten Kitchen + Giant Food rainbow sprinkles = confetti cake
✡️ Alison Bakes Cakes buttercream recipe + OREOs = cookies & cream filling
✡️ Swiss meringue buttercream recipe from Style Sweet
✡️ Giant Food rainbow sprinkles

Need a little chocolate for your Easter celebration? "Bunny bait" is the dessert you didn't know you needed until you taste it. Don't EGGnore the urge to get an extra bag for yourself! (I love to eat a piece or 2 or 3 with a hot cup of coffee.)

Today is the day! National Mall and Memorial Parks announced that cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC are at peak bloom today!

I fell in love with cherry blossoms when I lived in Japan (where cherry blossom viewing is *serious* business). Whether in DC or Japan, the famous spots and crowds admiring the blossoms are fun to experience, but I prefer a singular tree in an off the beaten path spot where I can enjoy the quiet beauty. 🌸

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
