I’m always looking for fun invites for clients who are having one of my candy buffets at their event. While browsing on twitter last night, I saw that Kim of the TomKat Studio sells these adorable DIY lollipop invitations. These are perfect for birthday parties and quite cost efficient since you can do your own printing. Visit TomKat’s Etsy shop to see Kim’s other great products like her new adorable cupcake toppers.…

Ribbon, Ribbons!

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds
I love using ribbon for well…everything! I use ribbon for simple accents such as trimming vessels, cake boards, apothecary jars, and custom display boxes. Sometimes I use ribbon to jazz up a tablecloth by creating a beautiful, custom border. I’ve even used ribbon to decorate the cake itself. So I’m always on the hunt for gorgeous and unique ribbon. A fave ribbon vendor of mine is Carta Inc. by Angela Ligouri. Her ribbon is made…

Thirteen Mini Cakes – Modern Twist on Tradition

I am working on a Bat Mitzvah for a client and we have been thinking of some fun things to do in lieu of the traditional candle lighting ceremony. Traditionally, the Bat Mitzvah girl asks 13 special people to light a candle on the Bat Mitzvah cake. For this event, we will instead have 13 small cakes made and each person can light a candle from a different cake. I saw these mini cakes from…

There were so many wonderful, meaningful details, but here is a…
