Still working on cakes...and other (BIG!) news

One of these days I'm going to get with it and start posting more regularly, I promise!  When parties and events are not my primary job, I tend to get easily overwhelmed and have trouble figuring out how to balance it all.  The GOOD news is, conversations are happening and ideas are flowing...so when I come back to the blogging world you better watch out - cuz it's gonna be with a BANG! :)  For now, my full-time gig (graphic design) and baking are taking up my time.  Not a lot of baking, just a little bit here-and-there...trying out new techniques (some a win, some a learning experience :)) and playing with ingredient combinations...all that fun stuff!  The cake pictured above was made using the "ruffle" technique.  I honestly had so much fun making it - and am excited that I have a request to do another one before the end of the week!

MEANWHILE, the big news is that I received an email from Amy Atlas' "Editor in Sweets" letting me know that she has chosen my farmhouse brunch as one of her "Links I Love" on the blog!  To be noticed by anyone, let alone Amy Atlas is such a huge honor. HUGE!  And to Perpetually Engaged for the great feature (which the link will take you to) - thank you!!  One of the most rewarding things about styling a party is getting to hear the feedback from other people - and everyone has been so incredibly kind!

So THANK YOU to all of you who keep coming back.  I promise that in a matter of time, you won't keep coming back to the same post day-after-day.  Someday soon that will change!!


  1. congrats! you're one of my faves and i look forward to seeing more of your work! i keep looking to see if you have a profile on hwtm.com (hint, hint!)

  2. Oh my goodness! I love your site and love your events. I'm using your Farmhouse Brunch Bridal Shower as inspiration for my daughters first birthday and am making a ruffle cake for her birthday as well. I would love to know about the technique you used on the top... Your stuff is amazing! Clearly you have a fan in me. =)

  3. Hey there! Thanks for sticking with me!!

    @OneStoneEvents...thanks for the head's up! I'm filing out my profile on hwtm.com right now! :)

    @Allie...I'm so glad I could offer inspiration! Let me know if there's anything I can help you with - I would LOVE to see pictures from your party! As for the ruffle cake - I have another one to make before the end of this week, so if I can figure out a way, I'll video tape it for you and post it on the blog when I'm finished! Check back in!

  4. Huge congrats on your Farmhouse Brunch being singled out by Amy Atlas! Btw, that ruffled cake is lovely. :-)
