Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everyone! Let’s keep our troops and their families in our prayers!
sursure14 asked: I'm planning on decorating cupcakes with pink and white frosting mixed. How should I do that? I'm making it a swirl
maybe something like these two tutorials:
misfittoys asked: I love your Tumblr, but I feel like I missed something. Is celebrating Memorial Day with patriotic cakes a la Independence Day a thing? Isn't it to remember those killed in action? People forget the reason behind most holidays, I just honestly never noticed a Memorial Day dessert trend. Is this a new thing?
Traditionally it’s celebrated with BBQ or Picnic. So it is a very ‘food oriented’ holiday.
Most people gather with family and friends to BBQ, drink at a park or someone’s home/backyard etc. But it’s definitely about our troops/those that passed. Honoring them in a festive way.
simplyintrigueme asked: Love love love your blog, I'm a fairly new follower but adore everything you post, especially your sarcastic and funny gif replies, too good! I've been cooking a lot of what you post, I will take this opportunity to thank you, because I am quite sure you're the reason my boyfriend still loves me so much, ha! xx
LOL I like this so much I’ll do my crazy dance!
fantrolls asked: i just want to applaud you for such a spectacular tagging system that pretty much covers any word you could think to type in. i don't think i've ever seen an ask where you don't have a tag for them to check, and the tags are always filled with food. you have such a variety and such a consistent variety too. it's really obvious how much effort you put into this blog and i hope you're as proud of it as your followers are! thank you for always providing recipes with a lovely personality <33
Oh god thank you! I’m so glad most of the followers can appreciate the time and effort that goes into the blog.
I try really hard, and I’m just one person. I don’t depend on foodgawker or tastespotting, and other similar sites. Almost all the blogs on Tumblr depend on recipes from those sites.
I truly ONLY post things I love.
but thank you for all the feed back on the rose petal ice cream :)
u guys are so awesome! :)
I’m getting a bunch of messages saying that ice cream cone is photoshopped?! my dreams are shattered :(
I thought it was a real ice cream cone covered in real rose petals :/
That’s still a good idea though (visually?)
This is a special message to someone who claims to have degrees in baking yet they suck at it :(
Practice makes perfect though! keep trying! never stop!
jeremyyyle asked: I'm pretty sure that rose ice cream cone is made from vanilla ice cream, not organic/edible roses! There are plenty of videos and tutorials on how to do it yourself with a spatula
I think that’s a real rose, I already have the tutorials with the ice cream roses (rose shaped ice cream cones). this one is an ice cream cone with real roses on top :)
but I’m sure it’s organic real rose petals or it would not be edible.

themargatron asked: Hey, most of the recipes you post are measured in cups and tablespoons and although I can convert some of them to metric, I don't know what volume a cup contains or how to measure a tablespoon/cup of butter. Are there any sites you could recommend that have a conversion table or any other solutions? Thanks, your blog is wonderful.
Hello! I have these to help you measure, plus some extra useful info u might need :)
Make sure you have the correct measuring tools for DRY ingredients VS WET ingredients **they are not the same** :)
almond-latte asked: just saw this today and thought I would share with you! tumblr (.) ippinka (.) com/post/50767486038/
H love, I saw that post a few days ago and highlighted it under the food tag already :) But thanks for the heads up anyway. It’s a pretty awesome post :D
wallean asked: God bless you brother/sister (Idk) lol.. I do baking as well.. And in my whole life never met someone who gives so many tips n recipes for free. What u are doing is just great! Keep da good work! :)
Thank you! I do love to help others with their party planning. It’s so much fun! :D
Plus it’s another outlet for my creativity (besides my other outlets like filmmaking, music, and dance)
Good to find other bakers on tumblr, when you gonna share your recipes with me? Imma wait for those recipes from u boiiii okay??? I will not take no for answer…
myyout asked: I really really want to try & perfect a carrot cake recipe. I've tried so many different ones but they just don't turn out the way I want them to. Either too dry, dense or just generally don't taste that good. Any recipes or tips? That would be great..
Well if you’ve tried many different recipes and none of them are working out, you really should look into your baking methods
- Are you using the correct measuring tools? dry measuring tools are different for wet ingredient measuring tools. Do you have both wet measuring utensils and dry ingredient utensils? Not measuring correctly is a deadly thing in baking. It will kill all your recipes.
- Have you checked the temperature of your oven? (with an oven thermometer) *click the links below to know why you should
- Are you mixing the ingredients properly (IN ORDER of what the recipe requires) If you don’t you could under mix ingredients, over-mix ingredients etc etc)
- Are you using ALL of the recipe ingredients even if it calls for a teaspoon of baking powder these things in baking matter A LOT.
