You may be asking yourself “how in the world is this a unicorn cake, and why would someone make that?”. Well, that’s a great question, and technically I have no idea other than the fact that every time I look at this cake that we created with Monica from Paper Flour Ink (and based off of the amazingly talented Katherine Sabbath‘s designs!), is that it looks like unicorn food. So naturally one should just roll with that, right? To bring it back down to earth a bit I am sharing a classic strawberry cake with coconut buttercream icing to go with, so don’t just me too much! Or do, and I’ll just eat my feeling in unicorn food in the meantime.

But seriously though, who wouldn’t love a cake with a little bit of everything on it? I think if you made one of these bad boy’s and sat it in front of your kid for their next birthday they might actually pass out from excitement (or maybe I was just that kid..). Either way, macarons on top are always a good idea….

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!

Since I’m not quite at the stage of having kids just yet, I stick with my fur kids. Thomas and I go way back to my college days when I rescued him from the middle of a four lane road and he was just big enough to fit in the palm of my hand. I bottled fed him,made my dad extremely angry for having a pet in our college rental house, got super attached, and now here we are almost seven years later, with another birthday just around the corner.

He’s spoiled as all get out and refuses to eat any other wet food besides Fancy Feast gravy lover’s and broths (I stopped trying to even trick him into a different kind at least three years ago), so when Fancy Feast approached me about partnering to promote their Ways To Wow campaign featuring the new chicken flavors, I did what any cat parent would do… I tried to see if I could snag a free lifetime supply, of course! Just kidding. I actually just tried to stick a birthday candle in a bowl of Fancy Feast Broths with chicken for a photo-op.

Sadly that didn’t work out, so I went with the next best thing you can put a candle with: DIY animal ear cake toppers. They’re like a step up from a DIY party hat, my friends, except this time everyone at the party will want one…
