Summertime Faves all from amazon!

Hi. My name is Miranda, and I’m addicted to Amazon! That’s feels good to admit to yall 😉 I mean, I did say that an Amazon tattoo is in the works in this POST! KIDDING 😉 But truly, I’m falling more and more in love with Amazon each day, and that’s mostly because I’m such a last-minute girl, that the…

eight products you need to make a great cake!

People come to me often with questions about how to make their cakes look as professional as possible, and I always say, “it starts with the inside of the cake!” Because the outside can’t look good, if the inside is a hot mess! And the bottom line is that making a cake the right way, takes A LOT of time,…

My American Buttercream Recipe and Instructions

I always used American buttercream for my cakes, not because I love it…the truth is, I don’t like icing at all…except rainbow chip 😉 Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone. But I used American buttercream because it crusted, I was able to get it super smooth, and because it held up to warmer weather, like we have in the South. Only four…

Cream Cheese filling Recipe with flavor Variations

When I owned my cakery, I wanted a filling that was super versatile, tasted delicious, and that would be different than buttercream. And I felt like, especially in the south, people were constantly asking for cream cheese icing, which just isn’t practical in the heat. So I found a way to give them that cream cheese flavor, but still have…

The BEST Black Bean and Corn Salsa, ever.

Have you ever gone to a BBQ, party or pot luck, and noticed a black bean and corn salsa on the table, and gotten so excited to eat it?! And then you put it in your mouth, and it’s completely underwhelming, lacking flavor and making you want to shed a tear? Okay, maybe crying is too dramatic, but you get…

If you’ve ever tried to sell a home, you’ve probably heard the words from your realtor, “that wall needs something on it!” Art is so important when it comes to staging a home, and can easily make or break the look of a room! That’s why I partnered with Jenn Davis, a local artist, stager, and realtor to show you…


LISTEN, I love Amazon so much that I’m considering getting a tattoo of the logo somewhere on my body…and I don’t have any tattoos! LOL! So when my friend Val, over at Lucky Lovely Life , started this series of her Amazon faves, and included an IG friend who shared her same passion, I said “oooooh, pick me!!!” So HERE.WE.ARE….

I’ve been blogging for a little more than two years, and yet this is the first try-on session I’ve done! I figured, WHY NOT HAVE BAPTISM BY FIRE, and do a bathing suit one first?!

Top 10 Farmhouse Chic Easter Decor on the cheap!

Ready for a confession?! I like Joanna Gaines AS A PERSON and she’s a badass businesswoman, but I don’t really watch her show! I think I’ve seen one or two ‘Fixer Uppers’ in all of the years it was on (is it still on?)! But I do know homegirl LURRRVVVES her some farmhouse decor, so why not jump on that…

About Me

About Me

Hey Peeps!

I'm Miranda, and I'm formerly lots of things (I sold dumpsters, fro-yo, and car parts to name a few), but most recently I was a cakery owner of Got What It Cakes. I'm a mom of two daughters whom I call my "minis,” and the wife to Joshua, whom I call "Stud" (yes, he's even in my phone under that name). Most days you can find me oversharing about my insane life on my InstaStories, in a segment I call "carpool confessions." Follow along as I decide what to be when I grow up, while I navigate my other love, the queen city of Charlotte! I also tend to go by "Mayor Miranda," and am awaiting my key to the city ;) Read More

xo, Miranda
