My Favorite Mommy and Me Activities: Decorating Cakes with Duff’s Cake Mix

Plus! A Duff’s Cakes Discount Code!

Halloween is behind us and we have a few weeks to go until we’re counting down to the holidays –– but that doesn’t mean that the festive fun is on hold!

Ava and I love to find reasons to make any day a special occasion and what better way to celebrate than with something sweet?! We recently stopped by Charm City Cakes West in Los Angeles for a fun afternoon spent decorating cakes, cupcakes, and delicious treats.

Charm City Cakes + Duff’s Cake Mix

If you don’t know Duff Goldman, he’s the celebrity baker behind Charm City Cakes –– and we’re so excited that he has a cake decorating studio on the West Coast where groups can come in to decorate cakes, learn a little about what goes into making your favorite sweets both tasty and stunning, and have time to spend time with each other bonding over a fun activity. 

Decorating cakes and cupcakes is the perfect way to get together for a child’s birthday party, a baby shower, a bridal function, or just because it’s a Saturday afternoon and your kid brought home an A on their test, won Student of the Month, scored their first goal in a soccer game, or had a big recital. Making something together is the icing on the cake!

And, you know, Ava and I love that we can have a Mommy and Me day full of all the girliest things –– glitter, sprinkles, and everything sweet. Since Ava has her clothing line, Glitter and Lace, we obviously had to make a few cupcakes with Duff’s edible glitter!
