Have your cake by Coco and Mingo

Hello Little White Whale readers! I’m Jessica over from Coco & Mingo, filling in for Gloria while she’s away on her amazing vacation! I can’t wait for her to come back and share her experience and photos!

Lately, I’ve kind of been obsessed with cakes, especially after seeing this amazingly dreamy cake recipe and photos! I admit that I’ve never made a cake from scratch before, but I’ve got high hopes and ambitions, my friends. One day I’ll tackle this dream of making one of these beautiful cakes that I pin like crazy (aren’t naked cakes the cutest?).

Here are a few that I plan on tackling sometime in the near future:

// This delicious and gorgeous Vanilla Bean Cake (ferns and flowers included)
// This beautiful and cute mini Matcha Cake with Coconut Glaze
// Roasted Banana Cake…better than banana bread? We’ll see!
// Incorporating these amazing edible flowers into cakes and cupcakes should be fun!

In the meantime, let’s get our cake gear on. Here are some of my favorites:

measuring spoons // apron // cake cutter // mixer // cake stand

Do you have a favorite recipe or cake-making tips and products to share? We’d love to hear about it!



I’ve recently had the pleasure of meeting up with Jess, who is a fellow Brooklyn blogger, and we hit it off immediately! She is such a sweetheart and filled with talent to boot – have you seen her incredible calligraphy yet? Go visit Coco and Mingo!

  1. Whoah, I was just singing the Baby Beluga song…”You’re just a little white whale on the go…” Crazy. I am a crazy sugar hound these days and I LOVE baking. I LOVE how that cake is frosted. I’m totally borrowing that idea. MMMMM. Gorgeous lettering!!!

    Oh these look wonderful. I think being obsessed with cakes and baking is totally cool. I’m already planning my daughters first birthday party (it’ll be in January!) and it’s going to be all polka dots. So, yes, I’m planning to bake a polka dot cake!
