This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

I love to bake but don’t do it as often as I’d like or take photos because I never think I can make cool looking cakes and treats. Well Cake My Day cookbook has changed my mind and the book use a variety of Sweetworks candies in some recipes throughout the book! Cake My Day is full of tasty cake recipes with awesome designs that are actually doable at home. Cake My Day is the perfect book to make fun cake creations with your kids or even by yourself!

Cake My Day Cookbook - Awesome Cake RecipesCake_My_Day

I recreated the Argyle Cake from the Cake My Day cookbook but with a few variations of my own. I didn’t use the exact recipe, I felt like having yummy lemon cake instead! The super fun part was decorating the cake with Sweetworks Shimmer Sixlets in lime green and bright pink. Sweetworks Sixlets are a favorite in my home! I had a bit of a time getting the orange Ovation Sticks on because my mother and I kept eating! You’d think it would be the kid dipping in the goodies but nope, the adults had no self control this time. We’re going to try making the Rainbow Cake next and we’ll be following the exact recipe from the Cake My Day cookbook!

    I think that it’s interesting that the recipes and instructions only require every day bowls, pans and measuring cups according to the description. I think that’s great.
