When food becomes Art

Pin It!

I have an affinity for arts and crafts. I also happen to love cake.

Sometimes these two interests combine, and when they do, here is the result:

Above, a cake I decorated for our new neighbors

Happy Easter!

A Jungle-themed party I threw

Cupcakes for my mom’s class (she’s a Special Ed teacher)

Red velvet cake for a Christmas party I attended

A cake for my sister, who loves Harry Potter

For a Hawaiian-themed Luao
