WOW! Your three cakes, one tip is wonderfully creative. I love your pictures, especially the table setting, which was beautifully arranged.

i love 2 too ;-) beautiful. thanks for the tips

Eva Run

Wow, I love your idea Amanda :) I would like to see you use Wilton tip #123.


I think you should try Wilton's grass/hair tip #233


OH MY HECK!!!........Amanda how do you do that? how do you just think this stuff up?

I love how those cakes look all together!....but my favorite is the #2 cake!........and the pans they are sitting on!.......and lets not forget that little cutie in the grass!!

Now I need to go look at cake tips and let you know what I want to see!! How fun!!

Mary @ stylefyles

These are beautiful! Love this post.


I love how creative you are, and I adore that little man in the grass. i wanna squeeze him. Come over already.


Pretty cakes! And the little guy is so cute:)


this is so cool- great techniques and very imaginative to think out of the box like this.

By the way, your baby is beautiful, and that whole scene is dreamy. Is that your yard? Gorgeous!


I like the number 2! I think the grass tip would be cool too, I love that one! Love all your cakes! I have been done your rose ones and they are loved! :)

Georgia Pellegrini

Love this tutorial. And that baby of yours... oh my. Makes me want one.


Wilton #136

Allison [Girl's Guide to Social Media]

Absolutely adorable!


Aww...LOVE the baby pic...but, since I'm done with THOSE...I'll make a cake for the kids I've already got. *grin*


I second the grass/hair tip suggestion. :)

Amanda Joy

I love the top of #1 and the side of #2. Great job. I think you should use tip #403


Wilton tip #48!!! :)


I think a grass tip or a leaf tip would be fun


This is so creative - seriously... 1-2-3... love it.
But I love that sweet Eddie scootching away in the grass trying to get off his blanket even more. That picture is so darn adorable. Love everything about it!


ok ok I got one, 172! ready go! :)


Wilton tip #235. Beautiful cakes AS ALWAYS! :)


Hmm, I'm kind of torn. The grass tip would definitely be exciting, but I'm kind of drawn to tip 320 (Wilton? Not totally sure). It has kind of a non-pointy star shape that's rather intriguing. I confess, I usually only use 2 or 3 of my tips. Watching this experiment gives me motivation to branch out and try to remember what they are REALLY used for.

pretty, pretty please: Wilton #70 and Wilton #81...I can't really think of a number, as I don't want to make it any harder, BUT, just to follow the rules, I'll suggest doing a "3" with tip #81 and doing...ahhhh...well, any number with #70...I'm too indecisive!

Can't wait to see what's next!!!


grass tip!


Those cakes are so cute, but I just wanted to say that Eddie is getting so big! He's so cute. I hope everything's going better at home now.

You are just amazing. I don't care HOW I try to decorate a cake...it's always ugly! I love all of these, but I especially love #2! :)

And Eddie!!! ♥

Amanda - the cakes are great and I love the tip "tip". But that baby and that yard and those metal buckets. If that is your back yard, I am moving in. Do you have room in your house for a family of 5? You are one blessed and talented lady. P.S. I have no suggestons...I merely follow your lead. You are my muse and my mentor!


#2 is breathtaking!!! I selfishly want you to pick a tips and to cookies! Can you imagine #2 as a cookie?

Anne M.

I was just practicing with different tips last month on cupcakes I made for my husband's birthday. You were the inspiration for that! I'd like to see what you come up with using Wilton's tip #199.
P. S. Your baby son is adorable!!!


they are all so amazing...I like #2 as well but again they are very delicate and whimsy looking.....I will have to take a look at my tips and give you a thought...I know wilton has this tip that looks like it has three little hearts on on it, I have wondered what that would look like. Take care. (oh baby...that baby is preciousness)


How do you make the top of the 7 cake?

I love the pie pan as a cake plate.

Little Eddie has grown so much. Must be from all the love.

shelly (cookies and cups)

gorgeous, as usual...I would never think to do any of that with the same tip...maybe the stripe one, but never the "2" one..not in a million years

Cookbook Queen

Love this idea, Amanda. I think the 2 is my favorite so far!! :)

I love how your cakes always have texture. They don't even need extra stuff because the frosting does it all.


GENius. genius. What an incredible teacher you are to come up with this! I posted a link on edible crafts :)


You're a creative genius! Gorgeous cakes~all of them. The munchkin is a doll:)
I think the grass or leaf tip would be a challenge.


I have a feeling that you are going to be inundated with responses and probably won't have time to cut any more flowers let alone smell them! Good luck with this challenge, it certainly is unique, but then again, so are you!

Baby Eddie is blossoming beautifully isn't he.

KC Quaretti

Oh my they are all beautiful but I'm slightly, well a lot really, partial to #7. I love the backet weave effect. Really enjoyed my visit here and I'll be back often!


how about

Gorgeous cakes! Ooh and a 97 tip would be great, I don't even understand how to use that one!


They all look so pretty! I can't wait to try making them. Perhaps #1 to start with. Piping still scares me!!

The Sky was never the Limit

Beautiful photographs, love cake #2!



Florist, baker, AMAZING mom!! Girl you are awesome. These cakes are beautiful & I love the concept behind them. Eddie is darling :)

Barbara Bakes

I don't know if I'm more jealous of your fabulous cake decorating skills or that you have hydrangeas in your backyard.

Katrina @ In Katrina's Kitchen

Kulsum at JourneyKitchen
