Continuing the kickoff of Halloween month at Pink Cake Box here’s another Halloween cake. What we love about this cake is our customer chose different elements from three different cakes in our gallery to create this cake. Halloween Pumpkin Night Themed Birthday Cake Sophia reached out to us after searching through the gallery. She really loved the bright blue and orange in this Halloween cake . She also preferred the cutoff pumpkin from this cake . For the cake topper, she wanted a sugar figurine to represent her son Jacob so we used this birthday...Read more http://blog.pinkcakebox.com/halloween-pumpkin-night-themed-birthday-cake-2014-10-01.htm

Some handy tips when crafting the perfect cake zinger: 1) Don't misspell it. There's nothing like borrowing song lyrics for a backhanded compliment, but misspell the thing (and omit all the necessary apostrophes) and you come across more crude than clever.   2) Be specific. Ok, so Charity smells - but what does she smell like? Hmm? Could be roses, or cotton candy. (Mmm, cotton candy...) This is the time to release your inner muse: tell us what putrescent stench Charity is emitting, and really explore your literary space, ok?   3) Keep it simple.   While you're exploring that...Read more http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2014/10/1/insulting-inscriptions-101.html

September didn’t quite go as planned around here. Take, for instance, this recipe. I started this post nearly two weeks ago, when Italian prune plums were readily available for their fleeting season (I hope you can still find some where you are?), and summer was just showing signs of letting go. Now, moving into the first days of October, I’m finally getting to tell you about this cake, and feeling quite a bit different about life in general than I did just a couple weeks ago.

I’m not a big believer in telling long arduous stories about my life on...Read more http://shaunasever.com/2014/10/italian-prune-plum-and-almond-cake.html

I just turned down a wedding cake order for $1,000 ! This couple contacted me in July for a November 1st wedding. They wanted a cake tasting right away so they had all details taken care of early. I made room for them, made four mini cakes with four different flavors. Told them the deposit would be due in September with the full amount due in October. They took home leftover cake so their families could help them decide on flavors. Didn’t hear from them for over a month when I got an email asking what flavors I offered! What???...Read more http://cakesdecor.com/entries/1690-will-i-kick-myself-later

Have you ever wondered what, exactly, allspice is? Well, I found myself wondering recently, and I thought I would pass on my newfound wisdom on the ways of allspice. Enjoy! What is Allspice? Photo: Pixabay Botanically speaking, this spice is known as Pimenta officinalis,  and it comes from the Jamaican Pepper Tree. While it is said to be native to south and central America, it was most famously shared with the world after its discovery in Jamaica in the West Indies: this is where Columbus discovered the stuff. Per the Farmers Almanac, a physician on the ship declared the tree had the...Read more http://www.cakespy.com/blog/2014/9/30/what-is-allspice.html

This September I attended my first wedding exhibition in the Greater Manchester area. After building up my wedding cake portfolio and creating several dummy cakes, I’ve decided that it’s time to sign-up to a few wedding exhibitions in my target areas. To be honest I was quite nervous when I initially booked a stall. However, I soon began planning how I wanted my display to look and how many wedding cake designs I wanted to create.

You'll never guess what Beth ordered for her daughter's birthday party! Or, ok, maybe you will.   Ah, but can you decipher the exact words used in this phone call? Nailed it. Hey, you're good at this!   Now, how well can you follow directions? Nice to know Jackie keeps herself centered.   Marissa's boss was leaving on a trip, so she wanted to get a cake that said, " So................ " as an inside joke. She specified that there should be 18 dots, so... Good luck with that, Marissa.
