It’s almost dinnertime. It’s almost the weekend. I’m almost always craving cake. For these, and many more reasons, I bring you Birthday Party Hat Cakes. I’ve had the idea for these colorful hat-shaped cakes bouncing around my head for months! I wanted to make them to celebrate SugarHero’s second birthday last fall, but being a…

Where the Wild Things Are Birthday Party Ideas

Where the Wild Things Are Cookies | SugarHero.com

Oh hey, remember when my son had a birthday over a month ago, and I posted all about his Where the Wild Things Are cake, and promised to follow up with party details shortly thereafter? And remember how I then got distracted by Mother’s Day, and important holidays like National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, and…

Where the Wild Things Are Birthday Cake

My son Asher turned two this month. I know. I KNOW. It seems like only yesterday I was writing a blog announcement and posting pictures of him in a wee Hershey’s kisses hat. Like every parent always says, the past few years have sped by and I can’t believe I now have a toddler who runs and…

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but my baby is turning two! Well, not my real, human-type baby. He’s only one and a half. But my other baby, my blog baby, the baby that you drool over and comment on and are reading right now? That baby is two years old this month. Happy birthday,…

The party was bee themed, and I took my design inspiration from the super-cute…

This post is a little different that my typical recipe-palooza. But when I was looking for inspiration during the birthday party planning process, I appreciated all of the other blogs that shared their ideas and resources, so I’m doing the same in the hopes it will help someone else. If you’re in the market for…

Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

As regular readers of my blog might know, I have a young son named Asher. I don’t write about him all that much because I don’t want to turn my dessert blog into a mommy blog—okay, actually, sometimes I totally do. But I spent so long making fun of mommy blogs in my young, carefree,…

Is it tacky to throw yourself a party? I hope not, because that is totally what I am doing today. Pointy hats and sugary treats all around! This week marks a full year since I started this blog. Time for a trip down memory lane! Slow camera dissolve… Before there was SugarHero there was a…
