sarlacc pit cake for my valentine
February 15th, 2016cake decorating, MaryMary 6 Comments

If you’re a regular reader of This Tasty Life than you should have already guessed that Jake would be getting something geeky for Valentine’s Day this year. I felt I had to stick with cake this year since last year’s Star Wars Trash Compactor cake was such a hit. This year I went with another Star Wars themed cake and created a Sarlacc Pit cake! I used a bundt cake as my base for creating the “pit”.
But first… I’m going to recap …

Another year, another birthday! Here’s a little recap of my birthday party this year which was a Back to the Future party. My party was on October 24th just a few days after the 30th anniversary (October 21st, 2015) and it seemed too good to pass it up as a theme. Here are some of the highlights of my decorations and food at the Back to the Future party:

I made this “fire tire” trail out of construction paper (which I cut …

hodad’s + birthdays

T turned 17 last week. Jake and I remarked profusely about how time passes so quickly. I feel like summer just started and now we’re nearing the final days of summer instead. T will be starting his junior year of high school in a couple of weeks and I’m amazed at how much he’s grown over the years. For his birthday, we went to Hodad’s in Downtown San Diego with Jake’s mom, T, Jake and I all in tow. I …

Valentine’s Day was over the weekend! I’m sure you realized this, seeing little pop up vendors all over town selling teddy bears and flowers and the insane amount of balloons in the grocery stores. This will be a quickie little post to recap my Valentine’s Day. Specifically, to recap the lovely cake I made for Jake.
Jake usually gets something Star Wars related from me on special occasions. This year I decided to go “all out” and do a whole cake …

attack on titan birthday cake

Jake’s daughter recently had a birthday and it was up to me to create another birthday cake (she’s now 15, WHAT THE HECK). This time she asked for Attack on Titan birthday cake (flavor: lemon). She loves Attack on Titan and when we went to walk around at Comic Con last year she dressed up as one of the characters and also did the same thing again for Halloween. She’s really into this show. Me? I hardly know anything about it, but …

It’s October which means it’s the start of MEGA BIRTHDAY MONTH. S had his birthday last week and Jake also had his birthday last Sunday (which we are celebrating this Friday). Just a few other October birthdays? Jake’s sister, my aunt, like three of my cousins, oh and of course ME. Did I mention that I love October? I do.
I was on birthday cake duty and S asked for a zombie cake for his birthday this year. I’ve made a …

The next day after laser tag was the day of the party for T! It was just a small affair with Jake’s sister and her family, along with a friend of the family and my dad (plus Maya).

Jake manned the grill for the occasion and now I have photographic evidence that he can cook! Muhahaha.

BBQ grilled chicken was the main meaty course for the party.

A summer party also isn’t complete without some grilled corn. Oh, corn on the cob, I’m …
