Pirate Fairy Cakes


Have you ever heard of Fairy Cakes? Fairy Cakes are quite traditionally, small cupcakes with wings. These wings are made from a cutout from the center of the cupcake. These fairy cakes are special because they’re pirate fairy cakes. Why are they pirate fairy cakes? Because I am super excited about the All-New Tinker Bell […]

I feel sorry for winter babies. Being one myself, I know the envy that is birthday pool parties, slip and slides and barbecue parties, or, well, pretty much any outdoor party you can think of. When February rolled around every year, all I wanted was a pool party with an ice cream sundae bar like […]

When you become pregnant, you learn all sorts of vernacular you might never have been privy to otherwise. For example, did you know that when parents choose not to find out the baby’s gender via sonogram, they’ve officially joined Team Green? Yeah, me neither. But, you learn something new every day.

When your baby cousin by ten years gets married, it’s one of those things you want to pull out all the stops for. Especially since James and I kind of feel like we were the first to give the “family approval” of the groom. Zach and Alycia are the CUTEST couple, and we were so […]

I’m going to preface this post by saying that when I’m stressed, I don’t always make the best food choices. My first experience with a Zagnut candy bar (outside of the movie Beetlejuice) came a few months ago when James and I embarked on a DIY project of sorts. You see, we overhauled our kitchen […]

It took me a while to join the Pinterest bandwagon, I’ll admit. I wasn’t really down with one more time suck. In fact, I’m proud that I’m still quite force-ably limiting myself to about an hour a week in browsing the site. But let it never be said that women aren’t visual creatures, you know […]

Last year, I got to visit King Arthur Flour’s Baking Education Center with a slew of other bloggers. I’d never met any of them before, but there’s something about baking together that will make a group of folks instantly feel like family. Fiona from A Boston Food Diary is one of the bloggers I got […]

I’m not going to lie. I first envisioned these cupcakes for myself, for my birthday at the beginning of February. Ever since Amanda made her rose cake with vertical stripes around our birthdays last year, I’ve kind of been obsessed with the idea of pink and white striped cupcakes. Lots of people are now making […]
