Cake My Day Inspirations: Food Crafts for Kids — UP Cookie

[ 0 ] March 6, 2015 |
This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

 Introducing “Cake My Day” Cake Design Cookbook  UP Cookie Cake My Day

This month Sweetworks sent us over a box filled with goodies and one simple mission – make a cake that’s inspired by a soon-to-be released book Cake My Day and utilizes some of the candies in the box. Challenge accepted.

We flipped through the book, getting inspired and then went to work creating another kid-themed treat. There is an amazing looking balloon cake in this book that started the ball rolling. Balloons are great but what do kids associate balloons with these days? The movie UP, of course. So why not go with that.

Cake My Day Sweetworks

The creation is simple. Take a square cake, cut into the shape of a house and then decorated with colored frosting and plenty of Sweetworks candies to create the look and feel of a house. Make a dozen, or more, small cupcakes. Cover them in blue frosting and top them off with a large colorful gum ball. Attach some kind of stringy candy to the balloons and house to give it the floating feeling and Ta-Da, you’re done. Simple and totally do-able!

Bet you can’t wait to cast your eyes on Cake My Day, right?! Well, this book, which is filled with dozens of cake creations, comes out on March 24th. So mark your calendars. And to sweeten the pie, or cake as it may be, we’ve got a Sweetworks giveaway worth $50! One lucky winner is going to get a bunch of Sweetworks candy to get to work on their own cake creation.
