Birthday Cake

DRESS: Etsy PETTICOAT: Sock Dreams

Lately I have been positively in love with dresses with huge, voluminous skirts and trimmings - there is something about the combination that reminds me of birthday cakes, and you know how I feel about clothing that references desserts ;3

Recently I found this dress on etsy and absolutely fell in love with how kitschy and fluffy it is! The trimmings on this dress especially reminds me of frosting *_*

It inspired me to make this moodboard of all things cake!

1. Eline from a Fluffy Blog 2. Birthday Cake by Sweetapolita 3. Kimbra 4. Peachy Pink Lace Dress 5. Eline again ^.~ 6. Birthday Cake by Sweetapolita 7. Birthday Cake 8. Berenice Peach Skirt 9. McDonalds Barbie 10. Kimbra 11. Mini Crochet Cake Ring 12. Birthday Cake 13. Kimbra 14. Polly Pocket Birthday Surprise 15. Pink Heart Cake Ring 16. ?

What was the best birthday cake you have ever tasted? (p.s. I have a lot of fun future posts planned! Stick around ;3)

  22. I don't have a favorite flavor of cake per se but I have a favorite way of making cake - the more frosting, the better. Instead of having frosting on my cake, I have cake on my frosting :)

  26. Your dress is SO cute.

    Pretty sure that I had that Barbie as a child.

    Also, I see there is a lot of Kimbra. Don't you just love her?! I'm going to be seeing her in NYC shortly. I'm too excited for words!

  31. You look gorgeous in that dress! Omg I love your hair. And your pictures are great. The framed one in the side bar is perfect. This one is perfect. The grass is lovely and it nice and bright and that little house in the background has a great color. I feel like I'm in a Anne of Greengable's book (but with more cuteness).

    The best cake I ever tasted was chocolate (my 16th birthday cake). It had this creamy chocolatey paste in between and the same as topping. It was delicious and soft dreamy. I had a picture of Ofelia (drowning) put on the cake, because the theme of my party was death. We also had a cake fight, but my mom cut the cake before so there would be some to eat. Ok, long comment haha. Bye.

  33. Ok now I want some cake! ;P I absolutely love the dress and the moodboard! Kailey you HAVE to try a Madonna Inn cake someday, that dress looks just like their pink champagne cake. I would so mail you a slice if I wasn't worried it might get destroyed on the way. Can't wait to see what you've got coming up, I love it when you post!

  34. UGH I literally gasped when I saw the dress ohmygodohmygodohmygod PERFECT. You are a vision of cakey perfection.

    Oh, and it's an unoriginal answer, but the icing on Costco cakes is to die for.

  35. Ah this dress is so fantastic and fun! I love it! It definitely reminds me of cake too and boy do I love cake. I'm actually getting pretty excited about eating birthday cake in about a week. And then eating it for breakfast for days afterward.

    ReplyDelete
  36. mmm, this is wonderful! I used to have some birthday cake lip balm and your mood board reminded me so much of it that I could almost taste it. My favorite cake is my mom's recipe! it's incredible.

  39. Fabulous dress. I love the translucent sleeves. The best birthday cake is the cake we make ourselves, because birthday cakes bought from shops are way too sweet.

  42. Please tell me you wear that dress out! I would never be brave enough too, but its such a fantastic dress!
    Icecream cake has always been my favourite :) but I never even liked normal cake until about a year ago because I'm a massive weirdo, and even then I only like it with massive servings of cream/icecream haha.

  49. That dress is so tremendously sweet and adorable! I love pink and ruffles, too, and would have swooped in on that piece in a nanosecond, too.

    While it might not have been the most elaborate, fancy, or expensive, to my mind the best birthday I've ever had will always remain the classic homemade chocolate one with seven minute (aka, "marshmallow") frosting my mom used to make each year for me when I was a little girl.

  51. I love the dress you look so sugary and sweet! It goes perfectly with your hair obviously as well! The mood board is perfect. The best cake I have ever had is the birthday carrot cake with cream cheese frosting my mom makes! I also really love Tres Leche cake from studying in Mexico as well! :)

  53. Omg Kailey, your dresses are always so dreamy and seem to come straight out of a Disney movie! I want this!!
    The best cake I ever had?? You're talking to someone who is utterly obsessed with cake. I love carrot cake, red velvet cheesecake, funfetti cake (I seem to make this one the most actually), white cake with choco-frosting, german chocolate cake and...I can't think anymore. All of a sudden I'm starving.

    I don't particularly like cakes, however my mother makes an excellent chocolate cake(similar to a death by chocolate cake).
