Regular readers of this blog know that I am passionate about avoiding artificial flavors and colors, even in cakes and icing.

March and April have been the busiest months for me, planning my kids’ birthday parties within 3 weeks of each other. My 6-year old girl demanded sunflowers in her cake. That was daunting! I had no idea how many petals were in a sunflower; what, 20? 30? But thankfully, when I used my regular daisy

It was time for another birthday cake in the family, this time for my son who turned four. As you would have guessed, Winnie the Pooh is his latest favorite. This had to be a gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free cake, owing to some food restrictions. And if you know me, I try to use homemade

I was able to decorate it with no synthetic food colors, just homemade plant-based colors!  Using natural colors was not a criterion, but I wanted to
