Julie is an Apron Goddess

Good Day Ladies (and Gents)! Meet Julie from Cakes and Kids. She is a lover of cakes and kids, hence the name of her blog (not necessarily in that order). Not only does she have a blog to show off her wonderful creations, but she also has a web site where you can find tips, themes, supplies, recipes, etc. in order to make your friends and family some fun cakes. Her web site is also called Cakes and Kids, you can find it at www.cakesandkids.com.

Julie says "From one busy Mom to another, I wondered if your readers might like to hear about my website www.cakesandkids.com. With the economy the way it is, many Moms are trying to save some money and one way to do that is to make your own homemade kids' cakes. My site is designed to help Moms do just that. I feature ideas, tips, photos, recipes, supplies as well as party ideas and contests."

This cake was made by Julie for her 3 year old daughter. As you can see it is a beautiful Princess Cake made with a lovely tiara, pretty ribbon, petite blossoms, and some very cute cut outs of flowers, hearts, and butterflies. Very apropos for a 3 year old princess. Julie says "My little girl is thrilled with her pretty pink and purple cake and the look on her face definitely makes all the effort worthwhile :)" She even has a simple recipe to make the fondant. You can find that HERE.

I don't know about you, but I will be using Julie's tips, recipes, etc. sooner rather than later. Trevor is turning 7 next month and is requesting a Penguine cake. Should be fun! Julie has just made my life easier, I now have some guidance and a great reference to fall back on. Julie, you are a CAKE STAR! Great ideas for those of us who feel the crunch of the economy. Thank you for sharing with the rest of us!

So head on over to Julie's and see what you can see. Give her a big "Hello" and don't forget to take some awesome cake tips home with you. Thanks Julie, you are an Apron Goddess who certainly makes her simple green apron work hard.
