I don’t know about you but it’s officially starting to feel like Autumn around here, the evenings are getting darker earlier, there’s a cold nip in the air and we’re starting to light our wood burner most nights! There’s something so beautiful about Autumn where we live though, the Forest of Dean turns into a sea of orange leaves, there’s often a crunch underneath your feet and what better way to celebrate this season than with piñatas?! We called in the awesome Alyson from Sugar and Bash to come up with a little fall crafting for you…

“I’ve been really into making piñatas lately, and when these gals asked if I wanted to contribute I knew exactly what to do! These mini leaf pinatas add bright pops of color to any party. They make great party favors and can be used as table cards by simply sticking a name on them. They are easy to make, and all you need to do is follow the instruction below –

YOU WILL NEED:

Tissue Paper // Card Stock cut into simple leaf patterns and 1” strips // Scissors // Fringe Scissors (because they make your life easier!) // Glue // Scotch Tape //

Katherine Sabbath Inspired Cake tutorial katy perry themed decorating cake White-7

First things first, I just want to say that in no way could we ever be as good at decorating cakes as the epic Katherine Sabbath is, but since it’s my birthday today we thought we would give it a dam good go! These were the colourful results and if anything it’s a cake that Katy Perry herself would be proud of! If you’d like to have a go at making your own inspired cake then here’s how you can do it….

Katherine Sabbath Inspired Cake tutorial katy perry themed decorating cake White-6

YOU WILL NEED:

A four tier cake in whatever flavour you like with a crumb coat. (you can learn how to crumb coat here) // 500g butter // 1k icing sugar // Splash of milk // food colouring (we chose pink and blue but the blue turned out green!) // 200g chopped white chocolate // 200ml double cream // Sprinkles, sweets and lollipops for decoration //

STEP 1:

The first thing you need to do is whip up your buttercream! So whisk together your butter (softened is easer) with your icing sugar until light and fluffy then gradually add in your food colouring until you’re happy with the colour.

STEP 2:

Using a knife or a spatula, apply your buttercream to the entire of your cake making it as smooth as possible. We did the sides first then finished off on the top of the cake. Once you’re done pop your cake in the fridge for an hour.
