Some things I forgot to share


Since Valentine’s Day, it has seemed like the month has just whooshed by. There are so many things I didn’t get a chance to share with you, so many things. Like my yearly Valentine’s Day baking. Chocolate whoopie pies.

And some of the valentines we gifted to friends and family.

Oh so many other things I didn’t finish on time. And in the blink of an eye the month is gone.

Now it seems that March is coming in like a lion, which is fantastic news because that means it will go out like a lamb. And that means a beautiful April. Looking forward to beautiful days ahead.

How To Frost Cupcakes

When I first started decorating cakes and cupcakes, I would look at my collection of decorating tips and wonder what the frosting would look like if I used that tip, or that tip. And which star tip would make the loose ridges, not the tight ridges.

This decorating tip pictorial put together by Glory of Glorious Treats is indispensable. It will answer all those questions. You’ll want to bookmark it.

How To Frost A Cake


I love a rough frosting on a homemade cake. But sometimes I want that perfectly smooth facade to decorate. One of the best tutorials for frosting a cake, for that clean, smooth surface perfect for decorating is over at Whisk Kid. So I had to share.
