Cake it Pretty: How To Make Ribbon Candy Cake




Truth be told, I have not always been a cake gal. As a child, I would have surely picked ice cream over sheet cake. 

My tastes have certainly changed over the years, but I will always have a huge sweet tooth. I love and work in pastry and I most definitely have my chocolate-craving days, but sometimes I just want some good old fashion candy.

Cake It Pretty: Fall Leaf Mini Cakes Tutorial

Fall-Leaf-Mini-Cakes6


If you would have seen my face yesterday as we drove out of the city and into the country for the afternoon, you would have thought the barrister slipped in a little something extra into my London Fog. On our way out the the pumpkin farm, the high-rises of our neighborhood were quickly replaced with row after row of golden-leafed trees. Maybe it's because I've lived in the city for a while now, but I had no idea I could ever be so excited about fall foliage. The beautiful colors of fall were captured in these Fall Leaf Mini Cakes.
