DIY Gumpaste Mistletoe for Cake Decoration

DIY Gumpaste Mistletoe for Cake Decoration

This Gumpaste Mistletoe tutorial is   from our fabulously talented guest contributor Shaile !! Isn't this perfect as a cake topper for Christmas Yule log?! We can't get the mistletoe where I live, for love nor cupcakes.

But don't be alarmed by the list of tools needed!

How to Make DIY Chocolate Covered Oreos

Chocolate Covered Oreos have been a permanent fixture on desert tables now, and I usually get my designer Oreos from either of my two favorite vendors: Sweeties by Kim or  Sweet Temptations.

Mine are nooooo way near as fabulous as the ones from the vendors above, but they tasted pretty yummy, and very handy when you're in a pinch! ;)
