a mini cake with mini things... 30 Nov 2009


I love coming across past projects and images I had forgotten about like this mini cake I created for a photo shoot I art directed a few years ago. You can read more about the mini cake D.I.Y. right here...

a mini D.I.Y. cake... 29 Nov 2009



I stumbled upon these delectable images from a photo shoot I worked on with Karen Wise a few years ago. I absolutely adore decorated cakes, but we didn't have time to have one custom made. So I purchased the mini vanilla frosted cake from a local grocery store, covered it in wonderfully white coconut flakes, and topped it with the tiniest of daisies...and voila...a custom cake that we used for a wedding-themed photo shoot!

boba baby... 25 Nov 2009

 I love gummy things. So it's no surprise that Boba Milk Tea is one of my favorite indulgences. Also known as bubble tea (because of the tapioca balls floating at the bottom) and usually found in Chinese bakeries and neighborhoods, it's pretty common these days to find boba tea offered even in non-Asian cafes and coffee houses. However, if you love it as much as I do, you can make your own with these WuFuYuan tapioca pearls found at an Asian grocery store or online. Follow the easy directions on the package and add to a tea of your choice. There are a ton of ways to make tea using recipes like this, this and this. My fave is coconut or almond black milk tea, iced, and served with a jumbo straw.

happy thanksgiving + love you like... 25 Nov 2009


I posted this over on my food blog last week but had to share here too because this poster is just so great. Made by Erin Jang as a custom piece for a bride & groom, she's currently working on prints to be available in the new year. Have a great Thanksgiving holiday everyone. Wishing you full bellies and lots of happy family time. See you back here on Monday!
