Piñata Party Inspiration from Pinyatay

Piñata Party Inspiration from Pinyatay

Last week I blogged about my edible piñatas and why I think they’re just the best thing to buy as event centrepieces for parties (and yes, I am slightly biased, but I also think that’s just cold hard fact too). To continue the piñata love, I thought I’d share some non-edible piñatas you can get too, for extra decor! These are all from the wonderful Kate at Pinyatay, a maker I’ve absolutely loved for ages. As the old saying goes, anything you can do, Kate can make fringed and stuff with sweets, and that’s why I love her work…

How to make a giant gingerbread structure (and how to order one!)

How to make a giant gingerbread structure (and how to order one!)

If you know anything about Maid of Gingerbread, you’ll know two things: 1. I love making gingerbread and 2. I LOVE making gingerbread replicas of real life buildings. It’s one of my favourite bits of my job, taking a brief of a beautiful, awe-inspiring structure and translating it into gingerbread format. I thought it’d be a great idea to take you behind the scenes of the process, and explain just how I take giant designs from brief to bake to build. Hopefully it’ll kickstart some inspiration in you and get you thinking about what I can make you out of gingerbread - if you have any ideas head to the bottom of the blog to find out more about the ordering process!
