I’ve been meaning to give a whole hearted shout-out to Kim over at TomKat Studios and her beautiful Fairy Garden birthday party forever… and just in case you need a recap of the amazing details, here are some of my favorite photos.
I love the bright pops of pink, yellow, orange and purple – and the handmade tutus and wings are my favorite. How stunning is this dessert table and each of the beautiful labels created by Kim?
For the sources for each of these treats/designs, and more wonderful pictures, check out TomKat’s post here.

You may have heard of these delicious creations… but I had to share the confectionery delights because they are making my mouth water right now.
Baked inside a crispy cone, these individual desserts combine the perfect sundae (toppings and all) with the moist, deliciousness of a birthday cupcake. It’s a no-drip, no-plate & utensil solution for the perfect kid’s party treat.
It’s as easy as pouring a bit of batter into each cone, baking and decorating.
For the complete directions (including just how to bake such an unusually shaped dessert), follow the jump. Read more »

My Friday Guest Blog Interviews have slowly conformed to an every-other-week schedule that seems to suit the blog (and the sharing of some of my favorite sites) well. So stay tuned! Next week I have a very neat blog to share – it’s just waiting patiently in the rafters.
If you’d like to check out some great interviews by bloggers like Jenn of Hostess with the Mostess, Sheri of Young House Love, Kim of At Home with Kim Vallee and oh-so-many more, check out the right sidebar button reserved just for these delightful sneak-peeks.
Today’s post is dedicated to one of my favorite entertaining/decorating details: cupcake toppers. As our April showers turn into May flowers, now is the perfect time to incorporate delicate handmade flower cupcake toppers for desserts, cheese trays, as drink stirrers or as substitute place cards peeking out from a rolled napkin.
Beyond the jump is a deliciously edible candied sugar version of flower cupcake toppers as well as a DIY coloring project with excellent results. Happy Friday! Read more »
