Vintage Celebration Cake

A basic square cake achieves grapeness! Decorate the clusters with dot upon dot, add some winding outline vines and a lovely leaf border.

Fruitful Cupcakes

Everyday candies can provide a bushel full of easy decorating ideas! Create grape clusters with candy-coated dots, whip up a frenzy of fruit-shaped candies and deck the cupcakes with holly made of cinnamon drops and spearmint leaves.

Strawberry Shortcakes

A simple way to showcase fresh strawberries, or any other in-season fruit. Delicious and special.

A Harvest of Cookies

Greet fall with a cornucopia of fun treats featuring favorite autumn shapes and colors. With shaped cutters, you’re halfway there—just ice smooth or add piped detail like grapes or leaves.
