Besides deciding on the flavor of your cake, most brides and grooms are also concern about the appearance of the cake itself. After all, it’s one of the most important part of your wedding day and your first anniversary. Leave the flavor of the cake to your taste bud because I’m pretty sure you’ll know what you like. As for the adornment of the cake, that’s the important part. Of course you want something memorable and matches the theme of your wedding. This can easily be done by using satin ribbons and Swarovski rhinestones.Just use colors that best matches your theme. For instance, the cake above used 5/8″ and 7/8″ satin ribbon in baby blue and black. The flowers on the cake were also embellished with Swarovski flatbacks. Who would have thought that ribbons and crystals can make a big difference on a cake that leave memories of a lifetime.
You can also use crystal sprays on top of the cake. If you’re really like to customize your cake, you can add a personalized printed ribbon. It can have your names and the wedding date on it. Then embellish it with some rhinestones.

Happy Halloween From M&J Trimming
Okay, I’m a little early but early is better than late. What am I talking about? Well, I’m talking about getting ready for Christmas. I’ve already kept my eyes open for gifts and decorations. Besides purchasing decorations from department stores, I also like making them myself. It’s one of the best time of the year to spend with family and work on a fun project.
This week, I decided to create a miniature Christmas tree out of wired ribbon. This is really fun and it’s great to do as a family or teachers can use this for school projects also.
Using the scissors cut 6 inches of the 1 1/2″ ribbon. You’re going to need five pieces of this. Then five pieces in 5 inches, five pieces in 4 inches, and five pieces in 3 inches.
Once again using the scissors cut 6 inches of the 1″ ribbon. You’re gong to need six pieces of this. Then six pieces in 5 inches, six pieces in 4 inches, and 3 pieces in 3 inches.
Now take the craft stick and place it into the styrofoam. The styrofoam will be the base.
Remember the 6″ of the 1 1/2″ ribbon you cut earlier? There was five pieces. Take the ribbon, add glue to 1/2″ of the ribbon on the edge and wrap it around the stick towards the bottom. Do this with the rest of the ribbon. It’s okay if you overlap the area that you already placed the ribbon.
Once you’re done with those five pieces. The next part is to do the same with the six pieces of the 1″ ribbon. From then on, you pretty much just have to wrap the ribbons around the stick; switching between the 1″ and the 1 1/2″ ribbon. Go from the largest cut ribbon to the smallest. Such as from 6″ to 5″ to 4″ to 3″.
After you’re finish, wrap the base with the velvet ribbon
and you’re done.
