Can I just start off by saying that I love lilacs, like a ridiculous amount. I’m obsessed with them. I especially love my next door neighbors lilac bush. They are the prettiest shade of plum purple. So when they finally started to bloom in early May I ran over, cut some (with permission), and stuck them on this cake!
I love the color combination of the mint and the purple too. Everyone is doing the coral and mint combo right now so I thought it would be fun and different to try this combination. Let’s start a new trend! What do you think? I LOVE it!
I had to pair this cake with some purple French Macarons too. Just because.
I loved being part of this pretty shoot we did back in January. There were so many talented people involved. You can see the whole thing featured here on One Fab Day!
And here are some lovely photos.

Every Easter my family makes these cookies for our family BBQ at Grandma’s house. Who am I kidding, we make them whenever we get a chance to. They are sooooo good. Technically this kind of cookie is called a thumbprint cookie. But we call them Sitting Pretty Cookies at my house. My mom got the recipe from a woman in our ward when we lived in San Diego. The woman wouldn’t give her the recipe for the longest time. My mom had to beg her one last time right before we moved to Utah and she finally gave it to her. But only after she made my mom promise not to give it to anyone…they are that good.
