|I just love this Grape Vine and Leaves design. It has a fresh and yet sophisticated feel. It's a great design for a non-flowery birthday, or for the Wine enthusiast in your life. It's good for the fall as well as summer.|

|A Yule Log Cake makes a great Holiday table center piece as well as a delicious dessert. This cake was made in a tube pan but could be easily made with a Jelly Roll recipe. The stumps are made with marshmallows and the leaves are 3D made with card stock. A Piped on Poinsettia will definitely impress your Holiday guests.|

I always love to see You Tube friend, Anita's, gorgeous interpretations of these designs. She combined the poinsettia with the Decadent Chocolate Cake for her daughters birthday. I love the pooling of the ganache at the border, it really adds to the richness of the look of this cake. Once again BRAVA Anita!

|Every Decorator needs a star tip. It's an essential. I demonstrate here how to decorate an entire cake with very basic borders, quickly. If you ever end up stranded on an island with just one tip, now you know what to do!|
See the whole video here:
|The rose tip is definitely one of my most used tips. I demonstrate here how it's possible to decorate a whole cake with just this one tip if you need or want to. When I worked in a shop I liked to change it up and make my borders with a rose tip. It's a great way for beginners to master the tip too. |

The only thing my family loves more than Fresh Baked Pie By the Yard, is these pin wheel cookies made with left over pie dough. I spread room temp butter on the dough and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar, roll up and cut into 1/2 wedges and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. They are delicious and pretty!

|This GROSS OUT cake is a blast to make. It's so much fun, I laughed the whole time I was decorating it. It's a great prank cake. When we used to make this in the shop, most people wanted it to say "Happy Birthday Crap Head" Or " Happy Birthday You Old Poop". People went crazy for it. Of course it's chocolate icing with candy corn and parchment paper accents. Watch the whole process on youtube: click this link.|

|I was asked to do a last minute Birthday Cake for a good friend and was stuck as to what to do with it. I opted for lots of borders. On the top I used a #124 Rose tip and used a scallop technique. I added another U shape with a #23 star tip and then the darkest blue detail is done with a #4 writing tip.|
|Under the Rose and Carnation design I laid down a spray of green stems with a #4 writer and then just a touch of leaves.|
The side detail is a #23 star tip is used in the bottom shell border and the C shape above the Blue scallop that mimics the top detail. The Sweet Pea detail is done with a #124 Rose and the dot detail is a#4 writer.

|Pretty Pumpkin head is a fun to make Holiday cake. She is made of three 8" layers and two marshmallows for the stem. The leaves are made with a #124 rose tip and the eyes with a coupler opening. I used piping gel for the black accents. This can be altered for a boy by leaving off the eyelashes and lips.|
By leaving off the face all together and adding fall colored mums around the stems, you have a beautiful center piece for an Autumn feast.
