Little Grace Cakes | Buttercream Peonies

buttercream peonies

This was my first attempt at buttercream peonies. It was a bit harder than I expected since my buttercream consistency was a little too soft, but I still love how it turned out. Definitely going to try a different recipe and tip (Wilton #402)  next time.  Luckily my neighbors love cake and have been taking these practice cakes off my hands so me and my husband don’t have to eat them!

Here are the tips I used to create this pretty little cake.

Peonies: 102 (inner layers) , 104 (mid layers), 123 (outer layers)

Buds: 5, 10

Border: 10

Pretty Little Cakes


I’ve stumbled across a new hobby that I’m absolutely loving lately. I recently started  planning Tenley’s first birthday party and decided to make the cakes myself. I’ve been practicing my baking/cake decorating skills and these cakes were just too pretty not to share! Check back soon for a recipe or tutorial soon.🙂

My Home | Guest Bathroom


I’ve been decorating my house by tackling one room at a time lately. I recently found this super cute sign on Etsy and knew I had to get it for one of our guest bathrooms. It only took a couple of new items to give our bathroom a little makeover since I used stuff I had around the house too. I love budget friendly decorating and using items I already have in a new way.  Links listed below!

Wood Sign: The Sophisticated Hillbilly

Towel Ladder: Milkweed Mill

Soap Dispenser: Target

Candle: Target

Mirror and Clock: Urban Outfitters (no longer in stock)
