A while back I did a "Trends" post on the popularity of Whirly Pops. Now I've noticed something people are doing with them, decorating their cakes!

If you're inspired by what you see, take a look at all the candy/sweets/dessert themed parties on our main site.

I'm loving Ticings, which are edible icing appliqués that can you can use on cupcakes, cakes, cookies, brownies, you name it. You just peel them off like little stickers and press them onto your dessert.
Aside from how easy they are to use, take a look at how cool they look!
You can even use them on cakes.
And if you don't like any of their styles, you can create your own and they'll print it for you.
So for those of us who are not expert bakers (and I'm first on that list!) this is a simple, and not very expensive (a sheet of 24 costs around $16) way to add style to your desserts.
According to their website, they're adding new sizes, new styles, and new prices, so we should check back often. And I will!
My daughter's 4th birthday is in March, and I'm planning to use Ticings to decorate her cupcakes. And of course I'll be blogging all about it.
If anyone has used them, please send in some photos and please let us know if you have any tips.
This post is not actually a tip from a Catch My Party member, but a tip from two member, Melissa and Kellie of Icing Designs, a company that specializes in hand-illustrated and hand-glittered invitations, cards, cupcake flags and gift tags.
They have graciously allowed me to repost my favorite -- these DIY chocolate decorations for cakes or cupcakes. And wait until you see how remarkably easy they are to make.
Of course we love cupcake flags, but sometimes the occasion might call for something a little different.We love to use these super easy chocolate decos on cupcakes and cakes! They are so easy to make!All you need to do is copy these designs into a word or publisher file and print them out, place a piece of wax or parchment paper over the print out and trace the designs with your melted chocolate!
If you would like to try these and can not copy the above template, just email us and we will send you one! firstname.lastname@example.orgSo simple and so beautiful, thank you Melissa and Kellie!

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.
