Mother's Day

This weekend we went to the city to meet up with my sister who was home for a quick trip from out west. This meant a hotel stay, something I used to look forward to. Now, I still look forward to it, but at about 3 am when no one is sleeping I question my sanity. Mr. Man decided to wake up at 12:30 am, 1:30 am, 2:30 am and 3:17am. I remember the “:17” very distinctly for some reason. Continue reading

It’s a Rainbow Cake!

Lady V turned 4 last week. I can hardly believe she is 4. Of course when we have a 30 minute debate over what to wear to preschool or she informs me she used to eat vegetables when she was little but not anymore, I am sure she is 4. I had a few cake ideas floating around but since Lady V draws rainbows constantly and has recently taken to using her fairy wand to create rainbows floating through our house, I knew this would be the cake for her!

A Sweet Little Wedding Gift

A dear friend was married last August and I wanted to make her something special. She had a beautiful vintage wedding filled with adorable details and thoughtful words and music. Miss V was thrilled to bits to go to her first wedding, and at 3 and a half was convinced the bride was a fairy princess. She could hardly breathe when the bride knelt down to speak with her.

I had the best of intentions to have the gift ready for the wedding, or later that fall, or perhaps even Christmas. Continue reading

Pink Swirl Cake.

I love decorating cakes, I really don’t have any idea what I am doing, but I love it! My daughter has a peanut allergy so we do not purchase cakes in my family, ever. This means we have become a bit creative when it comes to birthdays. I also love homemade cake, so yummy and fresh and mmm mmm delicious.

My Mama’s 60th birthday was yesterday, wahoo! I had great intentions to start the cakes late last week, have my house cleaned and tidy, leaving Saturday morning and early afternoon for making buttercream frosting and icing the cake. Enter the almost 6 month old.
New plan. Continue reading

Happy Spring!

Apparently life with an almost 6 month old, and an almost 4 year old is busy. So, not so many posts! I finally had a moment to take down most of the winter decor and replace it with a few punches of spring. Still not quite there, but at least things are starting to look a little bit brighter. Here is a glimpse at a few things I added to the living/dining room.

Kit Kat Cake

A friend asked me to make a birthday cake for her daughter on the weekend. She was turing 4 and is such a cutie! I have seen this idea floating around on Pinterest and another friend is actually making it for her daughter in March, so I thought I would try it out. It is super simple and quick to make. The perfect cake to squeeze in on a busy weekend. Continue reading
