Crushing on Cake Toppers: Little Cat Design Co.

I've been waiting for somebody to make some adorable and affordable cake toppers just like these for awhile (searching through Etsy calls for certain kind of patience that I left back in 2008 :)  BOOM! This year, cake prayers answered by Little Cat Design Co. for Sweet and Saucy Shop. Yep, they are the things of my dreams, and I am gobbling them up. (pun-ny!) Clean, modern, sweet designs laser cut into a variety of colorful acrylics and woods. I think they are just perfect and love to top my cakes with them!

Kinda shower cake!

These bows are so cute, I want to stick them in everything! My hair! Plants! Mini Cakes! 

HOORAY for everything! This one is perfect for a Monday, a gender reveal cake (like this one), congratulating your friend on that promotion, finding a litter of kittens in your backyard...really, the reasons for HOORAY are plenty and hopefully you have one every day.

Donut Jubilee

It is NATIONAL DONUT DAY, hooray! This is a special day in American history that has been celebrated by generation upon generation. It all started with the famous Liberty Donut that our Founding Fathers each took a bite of upon signing the Declaration. I believe it was Coca-Cola flavored, and covered in red, white and blue sprinkles. But enough history, you are undoubtedly well versed in it from your annual pilgrimage to the Donut Museum on the National Mall. Amiright? Um, anyway, it's a very exciting time of year and the only real way to celebrate is to throw a bunch of unsolicited donut images from the Cakewalk Catalog at you!!!! And hope that you are chomping down on a bright and scrumptious, besprinkled national treasure at this very moment.
