Roses and Damask Cake

This stunning cake was for a princess themed birthday party.  The only request was that the cake big and pink and frilly.

I took the opportunity to practice my buttercream roses AND to try stenciling on a cake for the first time!

I bought a stencil online.  I had some royal icing leftover from my Thanksgiving and Dia de los Muetros cookies, so I watched a bunch of YouTube videos, covered my cakes in fondant, stenciled and this is the result!

Thanksgiving Cookies 2016

I got a jump on my Thanksgiving cookies this year!  I only wanted a few Halloween cookies, so I decided to cut out my Thanksgiving cookies at the same time.

Then I had my royal icing made, so I thought, what the heck, let’s decorate them too!

Sugar Skull Cookies for Dia de los Muetros

Today, Catholics celebrate All Saints Day and tomorrow All Souls Day.

In Mexico, however, the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muetros is celebrated.  It’s a two day event honoring those who have died.  The lives of those gone before are celebrated with altars, gifts, and sugar skulls.

On the first day, El Dia de los Angelitos (Day of the Little Angels) is celebrated.  It is believed that the souls of children who have died return home for one day to spend with their families.
