Happy birthday to us! Okay, so technically our 4th blog birthday is tomorrow, but hey, I’m one of those “my birthday lasts an entire week” people, so we got the party started a little early with this DIY macaron cake. It was only fitting with my macaron obsession, right?

Not only are we showing you how to make this super simple cake decoration, but we’re also announcing the line up for our ENTIRE week long of giveaways starting tomorrow! I’m so pumped, I think you’re going to really love it!

We’ve teamed up with some of our favorites brands (Hint: Anthropologie, Rejuvenation, Brooklyn Bicycles, and more!) to bring you some serious freebies you won’t want to miss, so be sure to follow along with #sugarandclothfavethings and check the blog everyday this week so you don’t miss any! We even kicked things off with an Instagram giveaway here, but there’s plenty more where that came from. In the meantime, let’s eat — I mean decorate — cake!…

Every now and then while scouring the internet to unearth random new crafting gadgets, my inner child sometimes (most of the time) comes out and I find something I HAVE TO HAVE.

All of this to say that I had a similar experience a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon a Tetris cookie cutter set… which I bought… and then proceeded to make DIY tetris cookies with.

Technically there’s no real occasion and we’re not reinventing the cookie wheel, I just thought it would be cool to spend a few hours out of our lives making edible childhood nostalgia. You know, just the usual antics around here…

I love hidden compartments like a 90’s second grader loved Lisa Frank, and while there are technically no hidden compartments with this DIY serving tray, there is a sly little nesting place for your salsa bowl and dishes to rest neatly in place. It’s kind of the same thing right? I’m getting the warm fuzzy’s about it either way.

I also feel that I should mention this simple little DIY requires absolutely zero power tools, which is the next best thing since the phrase “no-sew” if you ask me! And no, there is no duct tape involved either…

With back to school season upon us and fall weather just around the corner, there is only one logical thing left to do, and that is to throw one last, giant Summer hurrah before the daily grind sets back in! Okay, so maybe that’s a little idealized, but this is what happens to you when you grow up watching The Sandlot and Dirty Dancing on repeat, you know? Either way, you can definitely squeeze in our four clever popsicle party ideas into your warm weather weekend plans to do a little celebrating here and there.

Don’t worry, we’re not trying to plump you up for your Fall coat (just yet), so we’ve teamed up with Truvia® sweetener (the zero-calorie saving grace addition to my afternoon flat white with almond milk) to reduce your sugar intake during your popsicle bash. Did I also mention we’re showing you how to turn our favorite naturally sweetened popsicle recipe into popsicle dessert cups, too? Oh, it’s true!…
