Sweet Saturday: Birthday Cake Extravaganza


Sunny Saturdays are always sweet, especially when they involve frilling birthday cakes. A friend of mine needed a bold and bright cake for the monster-themed 2nd birthday of one adorably cute tot. Bold you want? Bold I can deliver! It was tons of fun being playful and creative with this colorful cake. 

Check it out:

This is a French Vanilla cake with Almond Butter Cream Icing. Sorry for the poor lighting. Unfortunately, the sun and I were unable to coordinate our schedules properly.

What’s making your Saturday sweet?

Ooooh, Pretty: Kid’s Clothes


This morning I woke up to an email from my MIL asking if I wanted a couple of dresses from the spring 2011 clothing collection from Tea for Baby. Um, yes please and thank you!

I am loving everything Tea.  Check out this Etched Print Ruffle Dress.

Baby looks so sweet in gray.  Or this Rosa Tile Banded Dress

Oh, the Frills!  (They have adorable boy’s clothes too.)

And THEN, I opened up today’s GOOP newsletter, which is featuring, you guessed it, kid’s clothes.  Which set me to drooling over this smocked dress from Chakra Design Studio.

Ordinarily I am no lover of smocking — it usually strikes me as old-fashioned and too-preppy for my taste — but this dress has more of a playful fairytale feel that I think is super adorable.  Wouldn’t it be cute on a toddler?
