Okay so technically we have to fake fall weather when in Houston, but I went ahead and combined two of my fall favorites with this pumpkin chai latte recipe for those of you that are lucky enough to experience cool weather and changing leaves. Please tell me that fall is your favorite season, too! I need to live vicariously through some of you until late November when Texas decides not to be stuck at 80 plus degrees forever.
You can find the full recipe for these lattes over on Julep, and be sure to let me know what you think! I’m hoping that the pumpkin puree wasn’t too much, but really is there even such a thing as that?

I’ve concocted quite a few ice cream shot recipes in the history of Sugar & Cloth, but I’ve yet to bust out any Halloween inspired ones. Valentine’s day? Got you covered. Christmas? Love it so much I made two, this one and this one. A just because ice cream cake shot? Most definitely. And now.. a ghouls guts ice cream cake shot recipe just for Halloween.
Luckily ghosts have a tendency to fall in line with my all white color scheme here on the blog, so I just went with it…
Last weekend we hosted my lovely friend Davina’s baby shower at the studio, so I felt like I could take it upon myself to make whatever kind of crazy cake I wanted to go along with it. After all, sugar is in the name and I only need half a reason to bust out my next Picasso of cakes anyways! Plus Davina and Kyle decided not to find out the sex of the baby early, so it left me no choice but to use every kid-friendly color there ever was just in case.
All of that to say I ended up making this DIY abstract watercolor painted cake as a result. I also had at least five people at the party ask me if it was edible, and yes, of course it is (it’s practically criminal if it’s not!). Plus it takes almost no artistic skills whatsoever to decorate this baby, so you can line all of your big kids up and just let them have at it for their next party or occasion, too!
Well friends, it’s the weekend! Believe or not I actually won’t be working this fine Friday evening. In fact, we’re headed to Louisiana for a quick overnight break that involves sun and fun sans the emails. Basically it’s a weekend miracle.
In other news, I’m sharing these mojito ice cubes over on Lulu’s today! They’re actually the only reason I can make a decent tasting mojito at home. For those that prefer to skip the adult version, they’re also reallllly good in lemonades and sparkling drinks. You can thank me Monday.
