WH Hostess, a social stationery and party goods company, has announced the debut of their new product, Cake Plate Clings. A novel series of decorative linings designed for cake stands, pedestals and serving dishes, Clings offer a fresh, re-usable update to the traditional disposable paper doilies and liners.
I don’t like anything (object or person) to be too clingy — but, this I’ll allow.
It’s my birthday today. I won’t tell you how old I’m turning because I don’t want to scare/depress you, but let’s just say it’s “too many candles for a round cake.” I think next year I’ll ask to have my age “embroidered” on the cake instead.
Isn’t this a sweet and simple idea? Here, Stephanie from Clockwork Lemon (hee hee) mimicked the look of embroidery floss with colorful sprinkles in a pattern from the Polka and Bloom blog, but I think the possibilities are endless with this technique. Why fuss with rosette piping when jimmies look this good? Plus, if I use it in lieu of candles to represent my age, it could prevent a serious fire hazard.
It’s time to gather friends and family to celebrate the holiday season! If you are looking for ideas for hosting a fun, easy get together for children or adults, a Gingerbread House Party just may be perfect for you. With our inspiring ideas and downloadable printable party designs, you’ll be all set.
A simple white store-bought cake is easily dressed-up with crushed peppermints and festive lollipops.
Prepare gingerbread houses in advance so your guests can decorate them during the party. Put out icing bags and a variety of candy for the guests to use.
For a perfect centerpiece, prepare a gingerbread house prior to the party to display. You can use paper embellishments in addition to the edible details, like this gingerbread man party circle.
Finish the gingerbread house by adding coconut for the perfect “snow” base.
Offer a variety of desserts for the guests to snack on after they decorate their houses. Mini gingerbread house pops are perfect for this party theme and will be a hit with all the little ones.

“It’s almost too pretty to eat” puts us into cliché territory, but I honestly think that’s true of these edible fall leaves from Sugar Robot. The colors are so lush, and the details so lifelike, it’s like someone collected them on a New England leaf-peeping trip. I can’t believe it’s just wafer paper and food coloring!
These are elegant enough for fall wedding tiers, but also fun as cupcake toppers. You could even use a few to spruce up a pumpkin pie for an extra-special Thanksgiving spread. If leaves aren’t your jam, Sugar Robot is still worth checking out for edible feathers, flowers, butterflies (imagine desserts looking like the butterfly art I posted about and you’re close), and spooky Halloween accents. See? Seasonal entertaining’s a piece of cake.
I know Valentine’s Day is still three weeks away, but if you’re good with the icing bag, you might need a little bit of time to plan to make this.
I Am Baker made the intricately designed crossword puzzle and its clues on cookies while the box is fondant-covered pound cake. What a sweet give to give! Be warned, if you head over to her site, you might drool on your keyboard.
