Well if there is one thing we can all agree on here, it’s that I don’t need to explain my problem with an incessant sweet tooth. I even named the blog after it, for crying out loud. The good news is that no tears will be shed when it comes to summer and this low calorie spiked watermelon sorbet recipe! No ma’am! Thanks to Skinnygirl® Cocktails , this little piece of heaven only has about 60 calories per serving!

This is what I like to call a no regrets beach drink, since you can have the whole ice cream maker to yourself if you want, and it still beats a margarita in numbers. I have plenty more ideas up my sleeve for this collection, but for those of you in Houston, mark your calendars for September because we’ll be hosting an awesome (and free!) DIY event for local Skinnygirl® Cocktails Tastemakers at our studio!…

Not that I don’t push cake on everyone everyday, but today I totally am because I’m turning the ripe old age of 27, so we’re all slamming cake, okay?! Obviously no ordinary cake will do when you have every kind of edible paint on hand at any given moment (like me), so I whipped up this cute little DIY gold polka dot cake to celebrate with, and you can see the whole DIY over on Minted today!

In the meantime, I’ll be doing who knows what because Jared says he has something up his sleeve that he refuses to tell me about, so you’ll just have to follow along on Instagram to find out along with me! Also, since I’m now too old for regular frilly gifts from my parents, anyone who wants to send me something cute can hunt down via the studio address. I kid, I kid, I’m only sort of that desperate to hold onto my youth…

On a more serious note, we’ll be sharing our favorite cake projects throughout the day on social media, so be sure to hangout with us here and here, too!

I’ve had this little DIY up my sleeve for a while now (inspired by my DIY Christmas cactus tree , of course), and I’m so pumped to finally share it with you! I’ll just leave out the part about me squealing like a school girl when I figured out how to make these DIY potted cactus macarons stand up all by themselves, I may or may not have showed everyone in the building…

The point is, is that they’re as sweet as they are cute, and they’re also one of the few cacti you can actually encourage kids to take a bite out of. Instead of searching for pricks and needles, you’ll just get the honor of enjoying their sugar high. DIY potted cactus macarons | sugar & cloth

Strawberry Almond Crepes & Chocolate Sauce

05/12/15

Strawberry almond crepes & chocolate sauce recipe | sugar & cloth Strawberry almond crepes & chocolate sauce recipe | sugar & cloth Crepes! Also known as the stuff my Parisian dreams are made of. Without fail, every time my husband and I hop the pond, I manage to indulge in at least one fruit-filled crepe a day. And with good reason, they are light, fluffy, and perfect for both breakfast and snacks, like these strawberry almond crepes and chocolate sauce!

For a simple, May-inspired filling, I’m using fresh strawberries, homemade chocolate sauce and toasted almonds. I love the combination of fresh strawberries and almonds so much that I added in a little almond meal to the crepe batter. If you can’t find almond meal, feel free to substitute with additional flour; however, make sure to add the toasted almonds on top! They provide the perfect crunch that pairs perfectly with juicy strawberries and light-as-air crepes…
