    Tres Leches Cake recipe

    This is the best homemade Tres leches cake recipe. It has been the favorite to celebrate birthdays in my family for years, my mom bakes tres leches for everyone’s birthday and we all look forward to it. It’s no surprise that the tradition continues with my own family. My mom tops the cake with French meringue, wich it’s totally dreamy, but it really is too cloying. So I made a variation and I topped the cake with whipping cream. Mi oldest son always asks for tres leches for his birthday, and it has been so challenging for me!

    Cake topper printable & Easy Lighted Number

    We invited some friends over to celebrate Cristian´s  33 birthday, and as always I baked a special homemade cake. This year I was very busy with work and did not have time to decorate it with edible details so I designed a paper cake topper. I also did a super easy project, it pretends to be a lighted number Marquee. No one wants to buy an expensive Marquee for a birthday celebration that will only be used a few hours.  So I made  a disposable version with presentation board and string lights I found in the spot dollar at Target. TO MAKE THE CAKE TOPPER:  1. Download and install the font…

    Water War Birthday Party

    My son is growing up so fast! He turned eleven and of course he was not excited anymore about having a cartoon theme birthday party, so I had to think about a new exciting theme according to his age. WATER WAR!

I used neon colors and water splashes for all the decorations.  At the dessert table we had blueberry gelatin, orange cupcakes, cookies, vanilla bean cakepops, orange cake and watermelon and citrus cotton candy!   We gave to each guest a basket with a cookie name tag. Inside the basket they had a water bottle with his name so they can refill through…
