Elegant Buttercream Class at Orson Gygi

I was so excited to hear that Ashlee of I'm Topsy Turvy was going to start teaching Cake classes at Gygi. She is so incredibly talented, and such a fun person, so I was so excited to be able to attend a blogger night out to take a mini class for learning my buttercream basics!  
 It was really fun to learn all the fun trends in cake design and practice all my skills and mistakes right on the counter, then scrape it off and start over again!

Here is Ashlee doing her thing. She has such fluid and precise hand skills piping that frosting.

Here is my finished cake I made that night!

Click on over here to view Ashlee's class schedule at Gygi and she's also sharing a coupon code TOPSYTURVY for my readers that can be used online for products ( I really want to buy the whole store) with free local pick up, as well as on your cake classes!

Pumpkins wrapped in Tulle

This time of year you can easily find cheap fake pumpkins, but they are just that, cheap and fake right? I grabbed these at Walmart, I also snatched up some black tulle by the yard so this is a very inexpensive project. I simply cut a square of netting about 14” and wrapped up the pumpkin tying it off with some fun holiday ribbon!

Tomato Cage Topiary for Halloween

I had seen some ideas of Tomato Cage Topiary for Christmas using garland and decided to try a simple Halloween version. I already had orange lights and two tomato cages so this project was free!
I simply used some floral wire to tie up the 3 pointed ends to make the top of the tree then wrapped around and around with the orange lights. I loved how this added so much to my porch of pumpkins and mums, and it was free, quick, and easy!

Simple Cake Bunting Tutorial

Some of my favorite craft products lately are washi tape, paper straws, and bakers twine. I recently made a birthday cake for my dad and created a simple little cake banner I wanted to show you. I can’t even quite call this a tutorial because it’s ridiculously easy!


Measure the width of your cake and add a little length to tie it to the paper straws then simply fold over your washi tape and add a trim as you please!



So easy right? It makes for a simple way to dress up any cake.

Painted Pumpkin Trio

Fall is upon us can you feel it? Just about Sept 1st I start pulling out a few fall pieces and I love the change of the seasons. Cooler weather, sweaters, fall activities, & comfort food. When Melissa from Fab D├ęcor was looking for some friends to showcase some of her products I was excited to get crafting! I can’t wait to show you some of these great kits over the next few weeks! Our kit consisted of 3 block pumpkins and some fun pumpkin faces.DSC_0403
We started out painting our blocks, and then our little pumpkin stems.
Next we added our vinyl jack-o-lantern faces. This is a super simple craft, but the beauty of the project is you can flip those faces around and decorate the back side for “Fall-Harvest” Season as well.DSC_0407
For the back side I simply pulled 3 different orange fabrics from my stash and used pinking shears to trim down the fabric and then used Mod Podge to adhere the fabric to the wood.
