I can’t cake my eyes off of you 🍰💜 - There’s nothing I enjoy more than watching a character come to life as I’m decorating a treat. Just like magic, a few simple ingredients can be transformed into any adorable animal my heart desires, and it’s extra awesome when I can make them a little healthier as well without refined sugar, and using fruit and veggie powders to add color (because I’m def. an every day dessert kind of person 🙌🏻😄). This colorful raw cake was inspired by Icelandic brand Tulipop @tulipopworld , and their wonderful world of lovable, unique creatures. I started with a walnut crust and vanilla cashew base, and flavored each slice differently depending on the character. Fred is the sweet monster (w horns), and I used black goji berry powder for his deep 💜 shade, and colored white chocolate for his features and ghosts. Gloomy - the adventure loving mushroom girl was colored with a mixture of pink pitaya and blue spirulina, and decorated with more white chocolate. Miss Maddy (prob. my favorite of all) was colored with blue spirulina. Maddy loves sweets and everything pink, so I made her slice a bit of a mashup by adding a cocoa tinted 🍦 cone to the bottom, and the all pink slice goes with her as well. I decorated it with colored white chocolate fruit, buttercream, and frosted 🍓. The galaxy slice is for Gloomy who loves to experiment with magic, and is fascinated by the stars and night sky. I swirled the colors I used for all of the other slices together to create the base and then topped it off with ✨ sprinkles, buttercream, and chocolate planets. You can see the slices closer up and find out more about Tulipop in my stories ☺️. #sponsored #tulipop #MissMaddy #Fred #Gloomy #icelandicdesign #kawaii #iceland #tulipopworld #tulipoppers #flatlay #glutenfree #cakestagram #foodstyling #flashesofdelight #feedfeed #lovelysquares #vscofood #huffposttaste #thatsdarling #heresmyfood #foodphotography #healthyfood #cuteness #darlingmovement #foodart #choosejoy #cutefood #plantbased #dscolor

Wishing mew a happy purrrthday 🧁💕 - A day late, but hopefully worth the wait 😅. I couldn’t miss the chance to celebrate the birthday of one of my favorite characters, @pusheen 🥳🎉!! You know how much I adore recreating that cute, chubby cat, and so this time I decided to make her into vanilla cupcakes inspired by the Pusheen birthday plush my friend Agnes @hellowonderful_co gave to me on my own birthday a few years ago. The 🧁 are decorated with buttercream, fondant (for the ears, paws, and tails), and colored white chocolate. The 2 pink cupcakes are decorated to match the cupcake that the birthday plush is holding, and if you look carefully at the Pusheen cupcakes you will notice that they are holding teeny tiny versions as well. It’s a cat cupcake holding cat cupcakes 😂😂😂 (I just had to 🙃). You can see the cupcakes up close, as well as the plush in my stories.

Just wing it 🐉💜 - I love Toothless from the How to Train Your Dragon series, and ever since I first saw the trailer with the Light Fury (which is basically my fave childhood shimmery stuffed animal 🐉 come to life 🤣), I’ve had dragons on my mind. While I still enjoy unicorns, dragons honestly kind of win that magical battle for me. There’s just something about them, and maybe also because I had read A Game of Thrones twice before the show was even a whisper of an idea,(revealing that might make me sound really nerdy 😂, but it was because I had forgotten so many of the details by the time the second book was released 😅), and Daenerys’s character was always so intriguing to me. Either way, I’m already working on ideas for creating the newest dragon (you can see Toothless not too far back as a dark chocolate hazelnut raw cake), but in the meantime I thought I’d bring back these pretty pastel cake pops that were inspired by an itty bitty brooch made by the super talented duo Celine & Carolyn @tinysupply . Are you a fan of dragons?

Honey, 🐝 mine 🍯💕 - Happy Valentine’s Day 💌!! If you caught my stories recently of the honey filled package @bumbleberryfarms so kindly sent to me, you may have seen some of the delicious items I used to make this 🍦. I was super excited to try out their honey creams, which reminded me of one of my favorite ice cream toppings, caramel, so I thought it would be yummy to layer the Sticky Buns cinnamon honey cream into a big batch of homemade honey cinnamon cashew ice cream sweetened with Bumbleberry Farms pure honey 😋. It’s probably the coziest 🍦 I’ve ever tasted - warm, slightly spicy, and ohh so good (I’m kind of a honey and cinnamon addict 😄, so this one is right up my alley). You can find the recipe below if you’d like to try it too. To make those ⠀
bee-utiful 🐝 scoops I added wafer paper wings, sprinkle cheeks, 💕and antennae, and 🍫 for the stripes and faces. I hope today is wonderful no matter how you celebrate and who you celebrate with (fur babies can be valentines too 😄) 😘. ⠀

Honey Cinnamon 🍦: serves 6-8⠀

Ingredients:⠀
2 sticks cinnamon ⠀
2 14 oz cans full fat coconut milk⠀
1 cup soaked cashews*⠀
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract ⠀
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon⠀
1/4 teaspoon sea salt ⠀
3 tablespoons honey⠀
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric (optional, for color)⠀
*to soak the cashews, place 1 cup of raw cashews in 2 cups of water with 1/4 tablespoon Celtic or Himalayan salt. Cover and allow to soak for 3-4 hours before draining and rinsing. ⠀

See comments for directions ⠀

Sweet dreams are made of 🧀 - I freaking love cheese 😄! If I could eat it all day I probably would 🤣 (it’s even in a few of my fave desserts 🍰), so I am extra excited to collaborate with @Tillamook to help celebrate the first ever #NationalCheddarDay which also happens to be their 110th birthday 🙌🏻🥳🎉!! I’ve wanted to make my own crackers for the longest time, and thought this would be the perfect chance. The cute cow designs were inspired by the adorable videos on Tillamook’s website of their own 🐄. In Tillamook County (on the coast of Oregon) there are actually more cows than people 😆, and they are part of the family. The cows get lots of fresh grass, comfortable sleeping areas, and room to roam. ⠀

My cheddar 🐮 are made with Tillamook’s Medium White and Medium Cheddar with only a few simple ingredients (including a dash of dunaliella Salina for natural 🧡 color), and I couldn’t stop eating them 😋! They are especially tasty on top of homemade tomato soup. You can find out more about National Cheddar Day by following the link in my stories (where I’m also sharing some bts of how I made the crackers). How would you celebrate?⠀ ⠀

I love you more than I can bear 💌 - Bringing those beary adorable We Bare Bears back for Valentine’s Day ☺️💕! These cute cake popsicles were actually the v first character 🍰pops I made, and clearly not the last 🤣 (I apologize, sometimes when I find a new technique or tool I like I go a bit crazy w it 😅). We Bare Bears is probably my favorite cartoon. It’s just so cute and funny, and there is nothing better than watching a marathon of episodes with a pile of snacks while curled up under a blanket when you aren’t feeling well 😄 (also great on a snowy day). These little 🧸 are all vanilla cake dipped and decorated with candy melts. I used edible dough (kind of like fondant) underneath the chocolate to form the ears, paws and noses, and wafer paper for their itty bitty love letters ❤️. Have you seen We Bare Bears?

I’m so beary fond of you 💕🧸 - The @sugarbearhair bears are back to send you itty bitty bear hugs and wishes for a wonderful Valentine’s Day 🤗!! Imo food is better when it’s both cute and shaped like a heart 😄, so I decided to make 💝🍩 with adorably round Sugar Bear donut holes on top. They are both vanilla cake flavor dipped in colored white chocolate, and then I used a little matching fondant for the 🧸’s ears, paws, noses, and cheeks. Luckily, I had saved some of those Sweetheart conversation hearts from who knows how long ago 🤣 (but do they seriously ever expire?!), so I added a few along with baby heart sprinkles, and of course those irresistibly delicious blue Sugar Bear Hair vitamins 😋. I wouldn’t mind a dozen of these in place of roses ☺️. You can check out my stories to see the donuts up close along with a little behind the scenes of how I decorated them 💕💙. #sugarbearhair #sponsored #flatlay #foodstyling #eeeeeats #flashesofdelight #feedfeed #lovelysquares #vscofood #huffposttaste #thatsdarling #donuts #petitejoys #foodphotography #abmlifeissweet #thehappynow #kawaii #darlingmovement #livethelittlethings #sweettooth #f52grams #choosejoy #cutefood #cakestagram #cakedecorating #dshappy #wiltoncakes #foodart #heresmyfood #pastel

Ice (scream) pops 💙💚 - Thanks to my bff Queenie @queeniescards (who somehow knows all the food holidays, character bdays and beyond 😄), for reminding me that today is Code 2319 Day, which is the code the CDA in Monsters Inc uses for a white sock 🤣. It only seemed fitting to bring back these honey vanilla yogurt popsicles I made of baby Mike and Sulley to celebrate (plus, I’ve been terribly under the weather all weekend and an icy cold popsicle sounds so soothing right about now 🤒). Sulley’s color comes from my favorite blue spirulina @rawnice , and Mike is matcha. Decorated with a little chocolate, 🍏, and cashew buttercream. I love all the Monsters Inc movies but especially Monsters U w baby Mike, and of course, my fave monsters are Mike and Sulley (but especially Mike) 🥰. Who is your favorite monster?

AvocadOOooOOOo 🥑 - There’s nothing like freshly baked 🍕 to brighten up a -7 degree day 😄, but what about pizza topped with avocado?! 🙌🏻?! I just love using 🥑 in both my sweet and savory dishes (it freezes and blends into smoothies and 🍦 for a crazy creamy texture 😋), so when @goodfoods reached out to collaborate with their Avocado Mash I couldn’t wait (I ate one as soon as it arrived 😆)!! The Avocado Mash is delicious - like a ready to go guac, but you could also v easily customize it to your liking too. It’s just avocados, 🍋 juice, sea salt, and black pepper. There’s no preservatives, artificial ingredients or added sugar, and they come in individually portioned containers which makes it perfect for packing or keeping yourself from eating ALL of them 🙃. I’ve made avo toast countless times, so I wanted to try something a bit diff, and thought why not make mini veggie pizzas and use the Avocado Mash as my base for a quick and yummy lunch. I made a really simple cauliflower crust, then spread on the Avocado Mash, and turned them into my favorite 💚 aliens with a little mozzarella, olives, green pepper, and spinach. Check out my stories for an easy tutorial on how to make your own 👽🍕 (you could even use pre made dough), and a link to Good Foods Avocado Mash which also comes in an organic pack.

Piglet: “How do you spell love?”
Pooh: “You don’t spell love you feel it” ❤️ - 3 weeks ago today my grandma lost her battle with cancer, and although my heart is heavy with sadness I am so thankful that she is no longer in pain. My grandma was a strong woman. She lost her own mom when she was very young, and even though her life was not easy she always had a smile on her face and loved to hear about what was going on with me. She was funny and quirky, and had a crazy sweet tooth (just like my dad ☺️). She loved to shop and collect all different kinds of things, but especially plushes (a love I seem to have inherited 💖). I wanted to create something extra special in her memory, and so this raw vanilla cake was inspired by her love for bears (including Pooh bear), flowers, and all things pink. As many times as I’ve made sweet WTP I realized I’ve never recreated him as his classic version, and it just seemed fitting here. Pooh, Piglet, the piped flowers, butterfly and grass are all naturally colored cashew buttercream, and I used dark 🍫 to outline the shapes. To make it feel like they are sitting in a field of flowers, I added some fresh cut 🌸🌼🌹 as well. It’s hard to accept that she is gone, but I am so grateful that I was able to visit with her one last time, in her home, just days before she went to the hospital. There are no words than can properly express my love for my grandma and I’m not quite ready to say goodbye, so I thought I’d share another favorite WTP quote instead “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.” ❤️💖 #flatlay #cuteness #foodstyling #flashesofdelight #feedfeed #lovelysquares #disney #vscofood #disneyfood #huffposttaste #thatsdarling #dshappy #heresmyfood #foodphotography #healthyfood #thehappynow #kawaii #darlingmovement #livethelittlethings #vegan #foodart #choosejoy #f52grams #cutefood #winniethepooh #plantbased #cakestagram #rawcake #piglet #glutenfree

I love you slow much 💜 - There’s definitely nothing wrong with slowing down a bit, in my opinion. It’s always an intention of mine, especially at the start of a new year, to take more time to just be and enjoy the moment I’m in because life can move so fast. Although you also may want to accomplish more than these guys 🤣! Can you tell what my newest tart animal is? These chill creatures can be found in the Amazon rainforest just like the organic açaí berry pulp from @acaiofamerica that I used to make them. Açaí berries are a smoothie staple in my kitchen, as they are very high in antioxidants yet low in sugar, and so I thought it would be fun to try them in a healthy treat beyond my typical açaí bowls. I blended Açaí of America’s Unsweetened Açaí Pulp (which is made from 100% sustainable açaí berries sourced directly from the Amazon) with cashews, wild blueberries, and a little pink pitaya for a creamy, berrylicous dairy- free filling to top the almond cacao crust 😋. Then I used cashew buttercream (tinted with even more of the açaí pulp) to create the fur, and pitaya tinted marzipan along with a touch of dark 🍫 for their faces. They are decorated with berries, flowers and 🐝 pollen. The @acaiofamerica Acai Berry Pulp comes in individual packets making it super simple to add to a smoothie or recipe, and they offer wholesale for foodservice and retail. You can find the link in my stories (along with some bts of these fuzzy guys) if you’d like to learn more.

You make me feel all squishy inside 💕🧸 - Valentine’s Day is less than a month away, and while I adore the colors, hearts, and candy, the puns are THE BEST (like that awesomely corny gummy bear one above 😆)! I couldn’t pass up the chance to turn another @sugarbearhair design into food, especially with those pretty little heart 🎈, so I decided to bring the squishy, and adorable little sugar bears back to top off my strawberry 🍰 popsicles. I dipped the cake in white chocolate, and used frosting and fondant to create the bears and their 💖 balloons, then topped them off with lots of ✨ sprinkles and the Sugar Bear Women’s Multivitamin bears. The pink bears are a new vegan addition to the @sugarbearhair family, and make taking your vitamins easy as cake (delicious too) 😄. #sugarbearhair #sponsored #flatlay #foodstyling #eeeeeats #flashesofdelight #feedfeed #lovelysquares #vscofood #huffposttaste #thatsdarling #cakepops #petitejoys #foodphotography #abmlifeissweet #thehappynow #kawaii #darlingmovement #livethelittlethings #sweettooth #f52grams #choosejoy #cutefood #cakestagram #cakedecorating #dshappy #wiltoncakes foodart #heresmyfood #pastel
