Cake Attire

Planning out my baking is like planning out my outfit.

Not that there's anything wrong with a messy cake - but when I bake, I like to dress it up. I like my cakes to be the Belle of the Ball. Don't you just love a well-dressed cake?

Have you ever heard of Ticings?

I recently discovered this little gem of a store and fell in love with their cute little cake 'transfers'. You simply just peel them off backing paper like a sticker and put them on top of your iced cakes. They're completely edible! I love them. They totally spruced up my little cakes here. Aren't they gorgeous?

Aren't they cute! I've never seen them yet here at any stores at home. By the way, I showed your blog in the Internet at my friend's and she was so carried away with your illustration. She was sorry for not understanding the language but put your site in her favorites. Hurray!
