Sweetest Day

October 9, 2009

Sweetest Day is always the 3rd Saturday in October, and is a sort of Valentine's Day for everyone else in your life.  Started in the early 1920's by candy companies (of course), Sweetest Day is mainly celebrated in the northern part of the United States and is a great day to do something special of the sweet people in your life. 

In honor of Sweetest Day, I am going to share some of the sweetest blogs and websites I know with our sweet readers.

Moda Bake Shop

This awesome blog from Moda features all sorts of simply decadent projects using Moda assortments.  From quilts to handbags to gift bags, you can spend hours scrolling through this scrumptious assortment of how-to's and crafts.  Make sure you check out our Moda fabric and Moda assortments so you can "bake" your own goods.

This fun blog is full of sweet treats, ideas and inspiration of the confectionary kind.   Whether you need to make a special cake or adorable cookies, this blog has a wide variety of recipes that range from super simple to "who do you thin I am? Martha?" complicated.  There are plenty of ideas that would be great to do with kids, including Bakerella's signature recipe - the ever-so-versatile Cake Pop!

All Things Cupcake

all things cupcake.JPGAs this title implies, this blog celebrates everything and anything cupcake related.  If you need a good source for vegan cupcakes, you've struck gold.  For those of us trying to cut down on our sugar intake, this blog also features various handmade, cupcake-shaped goods, including jewelry, soaps, bath fizzies and knitted/crochetted figurines.  I was surprised to see how popular cupcake tattoos are.

Cake Wrecks

Before I leave you to this Sweetest Day, don't forget to check out some sweets we have at Fabric.com:
