I've been wanting to give my blog design a bit of a face lift for a while now. In fact, I think I mentioned it in my New Year's blog post as one of my goals for the year. It may have taken me a while to get around to putting it together but at I still got it done within the year. So check that one off the 'ol to-do list!
For my banner, buttons, and the lovely custom illustration on my recipe index page I enlisted the help of the very talented Carrie who owns the shop CagedTomato. I had booked marked a whisk drawing of hers a long time ago and wrote to her asking if she could use it in a banner for me. Check out her shop which is stocked with adorable food themed illustrations!
To celebrate the new blog design and also to thank all my readers and fellow bloggers for dropping by and visiting my blog I have a $25 online gift card which was generously donated from the fabulous Layer Cake Shop to give away!
I have never been able to find sparkly disco dust or edible glitter locally but luckily I found it online in practically every colour of the rainbow at their store.
My baking supply cabinet has a good amount of supplies from this store. All the glitter, luster dust, and disco dust that I used to decorate my gumpaste butterflies for my mom's birthday cake I purchased at the Layer Cake Shop. I've also bought flavoring oil, chocolate molds, and food colouring.
To Enter: Contest Closed!
I'll announce the winner on September 30 2011
AND THE WINNER IS...
Thanks for entering everyone! It was so much fun reading all the cake flavors. I made this (rather un-readable) pie chart of all the flavors. Chocolate is the clear winner.. not really a suprise! Then red velvet, vanilla and lemon.
