I’m always impressed with the creative cakes that people come up with. Here are a few that I’d like to try – they seem easy enough to tackle myself.
I’m debating whether to eat this one, or hug it.
A cake that celebrates doodling!
Almost prettier than the real thing.
Now I want to throw a space-themed party.
So, this is adorable.
Loving all the candy accents on this one.
A little while ago I was looking through a 1950s craft book and read about the Christmas tradition of a Jack Horner pie. Traditionally, the book says you wrap small presents, tie each one to a string, and put all the presents in a box/basket with the string tails hanging out of the box – then your party guests each take a string and pull it to see which prize they get.
This tissue paper birthday cake was inspired by that idea – instead of loot bags, have party guests each grab a string, pull, and see what they get! Alternatively, this would also be a fun way to distribute prizes for game-winners throughout the party. (P.S. Fan of paper cakes? Make these candle and cake hats for your guests!!)

I love looking at images of flower torans, which are festive garlands hung in Indian households as celebratory decorations, and decided to figure out a crepe paper version. Torans are so fun - the patterns and colors are super cheerful. There are a million ways to use this technique – you can make a wall hanging, garlands, bunting, leis, etc., and you can scale them to suit whatever space you’re decorating. They would look great as a backdrop at a party or wedding!

Lately I’ve been super inspired by circuses and carnivals, so when I saw these mini horse figurines I couldn’t help but make a mini carousel to match. This carousel is not only a decorative centrepiece – it actually spins too! If you’re hosting a circus party, there are no shortage of fun projects for you to do: try these cotton candy invitations, circus party hats, & carnival cake toppers!
