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!…
Since we’re on topic of celebrating our blog birthday next week (say hello to, #sugarandclothfavethings!), it was only fitting that we have a dessert roundup to head into the weekend, and these six breakfast inspired desserts were calling our name!
We also have a SUPER fun weekend cake we’re going to be throwing in the mix before our big, big birthday giveaway week starts on Monday, so keep a look out for that in your inbox!
- These ice cream donuts are the perfect way to make it through summer!
- Fried egg CAKE you guys!
- Okay, we just found our next birthday cake! This pancake stack is too good to pass up..
- If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then these adorable cupcakes have you covered!
We never turn down a brunch invitation! These macs are proof..
- Finally, if you’re looking for the pot of gold at the end of the dessert rainbow: our lucky charms treats are a must!
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. It’s like taking a kid to grocery store hungry, and the next thing you know they’re eating a box of animal crackers when you’re not looking. 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…
