Flowers & Glitter

A couple of weeks ago I did a feature on this amazing baker. How super cool she was and how I wanted to be able to decorate cakes just like she did. Some serious fan girl gushing. Well now I’ve found an additional source of inspiration, UK based company Cake of Dreams. The décor and styling is a bit more rustic, but the elements that I like are all there.

 I actually did sit there with both galleries and go “hmmm, why do I like these so much?” It comes down to: flowers, glitter, fruit. The other elements like the shattered chocolate pieces on the first post, the animals and insects on the second, and meringue puffs on both are cool, but not what “makes” the cake for me. I know, glitter and flowers, shocking right? You guys didn’t see that coming at all. I am hoping to try a few of these ideas out when my mom is in town in August. She is a amazing kitchen helper, and she knows how to calm me down when we start to reach epic meltdown mode. I am almost 30, but I still have a hard time when I don’t feel like I am initially “good” at something. God forbid right? Completely realistic to shoot from beginner to kitchen wizard on the first try.


I Want This Woman To Be My Baking Obi Wan

If you read last week’s link love, you probably saw the link to this Unicorn Strawberry Cake. I liked the cake so much I couldn’t stop pulling the link back up for “just one more look”. Then I decided I had to find out more about the baker who inspired this creation, Katherine Sabbath. A few short minutes later I was clicking around in her Instagram feed, and now I am obsessed with her incredible confections. I even created a Pinterest Board.

Lots of pictures, right? The sad thing is that this is me cutting way back on all the things I wanted to share with you guys. I want to meet this one, I want to learn how to do even the tiniest bit of what she can do. I want her to be my baking Obi Wan Kenobi. I should probably start stocking up on sprinkles now…
