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!…

Recently, at the hands of some well-meaning girlfriends, I, Carly, succumbed to what some might call the “I’m-pushing-30” peer pressure to join a local bootcamp. So, every morning I now wake up before 5am, stumble into my kitchen, drink my coffee with my eyes still closed, and head off to camp. There I spend the next hour of my life running, jumping, lifting, and lunging until I can lunge no more, all in the name of fitness. Sounds exciting, right? Well, I honestly have no reason for telling you about any of it, except to help you fully understand just how much I’ve been thinking about cake lately, so this DIY abstract floral pattern cake is no coincidence as far as timing!

Lucky for me, these same girlfriends of mine like to regularly host fabulous dinner parties. Ones where we all gather around bottles of wine while we cook each other all sorts of delicious foods and eat to our hearts’ content. It’s wonderful, for so many reasons, but it also affords me the perfect opportunity to make (and eat) some truly amazing cake.

Now of course, for nights as special as these, I can’t just show up with any old cake. But let’s be honest, who has the time, energy, or talent to make a show-stopping cake worthy of television show glory? Well I’m glad you asked, my friend, because YOU do, and I’m going to show you how…

When BHLDN asks you to team up with them to style a tea party themed soiree, you naturally do two things: one being to run a few laps around your studio out of sheer excitement, and the second being to go buck wild and transform your whole studio into a Grand Budapest Hotel inspired wonderland from top to bottom.

Lucky for you I don’t skimp on the details when it comes to get togethers, and thus a tea party with BHLDN is anything but an exception, so I’m going to share alll of the details, how-to’s, and even a few freebies for you to create your own!…
