This easy pistachio cake uses pudding in the mix to make it extra moist. Layered with cinnamon and sugar. Recipe at everydayjenny.com

I love anything pistachio flavored! This moist and delicious pistachio cake has always been one of my favorite cakes that my mom made growing up.  It’s layered in the middle and top with a cinnamon sugar mixture that makes it even better. This is one of the cakes that you will want to make again and again once you try it! And although I love making cakes from scratch, I also love having cake mixes on hand to whip up a cake at the last minute.

PERSONALIZED DONUT WEDDING CAKE WITH CRICUT

This post is sponsored by Cricut as part of their wedding campaign “It’s Your Story, Make It Personal”. I also received a Canon Printer in exchange for my honest opinion. 

Its no secret that I love making all kinds of cakes. But what about people who don’t like cake? (gasp!) This donut cake is the perfect alternative! I used my Cricut Explore Air to make the custom cake topper and cute photo cutouts. A tiered cupcake stand was used to hold the donuts and I also used some edible gold spray to give them a slight shimmer.

UNDER THE SEA CAKE/LIVING PLANET AQUARIUM PARTY

I made this cake a while ago but realized I hadn’t put the pictures on the blog. When I won a birthday party at the Living Planet Aquarium in Draper, Utah, I couldn’t wait to make a sea-themed cake. My son has always loved Finding Nemo, so I included him on the cake along with some other fun sea creatures- an octopus, crab, shark fin and a stingray. I used marshmallow fondant to cover the cake and make all of the creatures.

If you are thinking about having a party at the Living Planet Aquarium, it is awesome! You get a private party room  and the kids gets to play at Tui’s Playplace, which is a huge playground with slides and things to climb through. The staff were so friendly and the room is already decorated in a cute sea theme. They provide the food (pizza and soda) and the tablecloth and all the plates and utensils. They even clean up everything afterwards. After the party you can go explore the aquarium which has so many neat exhibits and displays. We really loved everything about it. Under the sea fondant cake. Finding Nemo, octopus and crab.
