I'm a big fan of miniature bunting on cakes, so when I stumbled upon the Kiki La Ru Etsy shop, specializing in cake bunting made from vintage and upcycled fabrics, I had to post about it.
I think cake bunting is such a beautiful party element. It adds a whimsical, handcrafted feel to your cake (especially a homemade one). Take a look at these lovely photos...
The bunting at Kiki La Ru is not inexpensive. They range from $21-26, but they are definitely beautiful.
If you add miniature bunting to one of your cakes, please email me a photo. I'd love to post it.
I'm fascinated by the Cricut Cake Decorating Machine.
For those of you who don't know what it is, it's a food-safe electronic die cutting machine that can be used for cake, cupcake, and cookie decorating. It's the sister product to the original Cricut paper cutter that most scrapbookers swear by.
And of course, who doesn't want to see some Cricut cakes. So here are few I found.
But to really see how these things work, you might want to check out this video.
I have to say, I'm impressed. The one thing that gives me pause is the price. At $300 (with no extra cartridges) I better be planning to make a whole lot o' cake with it.
If you have any feedback on the Cricut Cake Decorating Machine please post.
FooDoodlers are markers made of food coloring that you can use to draw on cookies, cakes, pancakes, bread, crackers, marshmallows... you name it.
And when I read that Meaghan recommends them, and was even running a contest on her blog to give some away, I knew they had to be good.
Not only would these markers be fun to use on your own food decorating projects, but how great would these be at a party? Lay out some iced cookies and some FooDoodler markers and let people go to town.
There were also a couple of creative ideas on their website that I thought were worth sharing:
After a sleepover, put out the pens and let your guests color their pancakes.
If you take kids to a restaurant and want to entertain them, pull out some FooDoodlers and let them draw on their food.
Give your fruits and vegetables more pizazz by drawing on them.
I know my daughter will love these! In fact, if I don't win them on Meaghan's blog, I'm ordering some on Amazon.
