Cake Month: Kickass 100's and 1,000's

This cake is probably my favorite cake out of all the ones I've ever made.  Sprinkles and an awesome food dye centre?  Yeah, that's right up my alley.

Although, this cake wasn't for me - I volunteered to make my boyfriend's younger sister's birthday cake.  It took forever to think of an appropriate cake; the only clues I was given was that she likes chocolate and the colour blue.  Yeah, not overly useful, but when I saw this cake I simply had to make that one with blue rather than purple.  Perfect for a party and totally kickass.

Hundreds and Thousands coated cake!

Oh, this cake just makes me smile, it's so cheerful!

One thing I'm terrible at is keeping secrets - so it was super hard keeping the inside as a surprise!  It really was totally worth it, the birthday girl totally loved her cake.

The Innards ;)

How awesome did it look?  I'm officially hooked on the gel colouring, it really is fabulous.  Really can't wait to make something like this again, I'm thinking cupcakes with the ombre-ness...

Until next time,


  1. That cake is so lovely, and I was sold on it before seeing the rainbow innards! I'm glad she liked it!

    1. Thanks so much! It was a lot of fun to make, too =D

  2. Love this! I just bought a bunch of gel food coloring for tinting jars. Nice to have another use.

    1. Thanks for the tip! I never thought of using gel food colouring to tint jars...

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
