I want to see a tutorial on how you make those cool ice cube lighted thingys. Oh wait that wasn't a choice was it? :-) Can I still be entered into your drawing? *wink*

Stacey said...

I could do a tutorial on those. :) Especially if you aren't the only one that wants to be "in the know". :)

And yes, you'll be entered in the drawing.

I would like a tutorial on how you do this all with 2 kids!!
(oh, plus I have always been fascinated by the royal icing tiara on the princess cupcakes -- would love to know how to create that)

I would also love to know how you make the lighted glass cubes. Plus, I'd love to know when you get your inspiration for all your cakes. They are truly breathtaking! I wish I lived closer so I could order one, but I'm guessing it would never make it to Indiana in one piece.

I'd love to see how you make your lovely flowers!! If I could make just one, I'd be very proud of myself :-D

I would love to see some beginner tips on how to decorate cakes with fondant! It's something that I'd like to try, but I fear I'll mess it all up!

I love the cakes and images you have on your blog, you look like you do truly amazing work! I'm actually in PA also (Chester County) so that makes it even more awesome to come across your blog like this.

I agree with most of the people here, tutorials and how tos would be nice, and I'd really love some simple recipes since I'm not an advanced baker.

I'm going to head a different direction though and say that your design could use a few little updates to make it more business friendly - although I'm not sure if that's the direction that you want to take it?

For one, adding a custom signature to your posts is a really great touch.

Second putting in a menu bar on top (especially if you add recipes, tips, or how tos) would be a really HUGE upgrade for your layout. It would also give you a way to add your contact information in a more private way, a way to add a photo gallery to show off your work to potential customers, and you could probably work in a link for an order form.

You also seem to have a realllllly long side column full of different widgets. If you want people to see everything on that column, it should probably be split into two columns.

I'd probably consider getting a background that doesn't link back to another site ;)

I cold go on and on but I think that's a great few places to start.

Please don't get me wrong. I ADORE the design of your site as it is, but these things will make it a bit more professional looking if that's what you're shooting for.

In the past, I've enjoyed your recipes where you've used more "healthy subsituted" items like applesauce, etc. for oils--I like the more "healthy" alternatives to baking, as it's normally packed full of bad stuff, already!! LOL!

I'd love you to just share recipes-how your kids/husband rate them, etc. I find using recipes that I know other moms use to feed their kiddos, to be very helpful.....

5 ingredients or less for meal types of dishes, etc.

I have tons of ideas--but I think t hat's enough!

I wouldn't mind knowing how to do the ice blocks too....but think it requires a special tool? I'm making marshmellow guns tomorrow--maybe I should take step-by-step photos of those and post that on my blog too? Hmmm...there's an idea....

Okay-going to stop rambing under your commments now...LOL!

My question is, fondant looks so nice but I don't like the taste. I love the taste of buttercream icing but it does not look as nice. So how do we get look and taste? Thanks

Carol said...

I would love tutorials on stuff for beginners! I would love to decorate a cake with frosting (LOL)!! When I frost cakes - heaven forbid a two layer one - I decorate with sugar crystals but would love some flowers or even how to write so the letters don't look stupid!

Diane Check said...

I would love to find out more about chocolate gnash… how to make it, how to spread it and especially how to incorporate it into a regular layered cake recipe. It is so yummy, yet I am so leery on even trying to make it.

tammy said...

i would love to see more tutorials! I still cant figure out how you made that cake truck!

Deane said...

Tutorials and more recipes would be awesome. deanenpr at yahoo.com
