to see all of the Madagascar themed ice sculptures!

Little Delights Project

It has been way too long since I have had a Little Delights Project post! 

1. I'm loving that it is finally cooling off down here in the south. It's sweater season!!! 

2. We are starting to decorate for Christmas early this year. I love that my mom decorates the whole house so festive.

3. I teach little 8 year olds in church and one of them gave me a little present wrapped with lined paper and tape. Another one of the kids drew me a picture! They are so thoughtful!

4. I've also already started listening to Christmas music :) 

5. Thanksgiving is exactly ONE week away!! I'm ready for some turkey, mashed potatoes, orange rolls, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and so much more!

Don't know what the Little Delights Project is? Read here.

Tutorial Tuesday: Thanksgiving Cake Balls

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is coming up so fast! I'm ready to eat some delicious food :) This is a tutorial that I did for a book review in September, but these would be perfect for Thanksgiving dessert. They are called Toffee-Brown Butter-Pecan cake balls!

Just to warn you that they are very rich so if you make them small they will be a perfect end to a big Thanksgiving feast!

I will be making some more tutorials soon so be on the lookout for some holiday treats! :)

A Party To Remember

What's better than having a birthday party where your friends make your dream cake?! I had such a fun time helping with my little sisters birthday party for her 12th birthday. Her theme was pink and zebra which was so much fun to decorate with!

I started out showing the girls the basics of cake decorating. They had a lot of fun experimenting and figuring out how to work a piping bag.

My sister had me draw out what her dream cake would look like and this is what she decided on!

Then her friends had to answer questions about my sister and if they got the question right they got a detailed clue about her dream cake. If they got the question wrong they got a very vague hint about her cake. Once they gathered their clues from the game, they went to their work stations and started making what they thought the dream cake was supposed to look like! 

Here is their great team work! 

They did such a great job for being first time cake decorators!! Here is the finished product: 

They both were very close to the picture! They all had a great time and I was exhausted by the end :)

Happy Birthday Cami!! I love you!
