Inked in Sweets

Hey guys and YAY!!!!!! …… I feel like I need to scream that right now. I guess you’ve noticed a little lack of baking lately. I’m sorry about that. I’ve been away from the blog for a few weeks but everything is fine. (Thanks for your sweet emails asking if I was okay.) I’ve just been moving to a new house and my kitchen has been all packed up for a while. And on top of that, I’ve been without internet for almost two weeks, too. Can you say stir crazy? … Because that would be me. But they finally got it up and going last night. YAYAYAY! So now that I’m starting to get all settled in to my new space, I’m way excited to start baking again … and in a new oven.

In the meantime, how about a fun little giveaway now that I can finally blog again. It’s a pretty cute one.

Tattly Party Set

Have you heard of Tattly?

They’re designy temporary tattoos for adults and kids alike … plus they are totally cute.


They’re like real, but fake.

And you can buy them in sets or singles.

I chose some that are sweet themed of course but there are tons of other cool and whimsical Tattly designs to choose from.

Tattly Party Set

These designs all come in the Party Set illustrated by Julia Rothman.

Tattly Birthday Set

Tattly Birthday Set

And these designs are in the Birthday Set illustrated by Mike Lowery.

You could totally use either set for a birthday though. Fun times.

Want to see some more sweets in single versions?

Popsicle Tattly

How about popsicles? These are fun because you can use all four as one tattoo or cut them into sections and use one at a time. Love these.

Ice Cream Tattly

Ice cream cone tattoos with sprinkles? Yes please.

Lollipop Tattly

What about lollipops?

Birthday Garland Tattly

Or Birthday Garland? Way fun.


Want to win some?

Enter for a chance to win one of two Tattly sets including:
The Party Set, The Birthday Set plus the popsicles, ice cream cones, lollipops, and birthday garland.

  • To enter, just leave your answer to one of the questions below on this post.
  • Which one of the above temporary tattoos is your favorite (if any)? OR Do you have a real tattoo? and what is it? I’m curious.
  • Deadline to enter is Friday, August 16 at 8:00 pm ET. Sorry, Time’s Up! Winners announced below.
  • Two winners will be chosen at random and announced sometime Saturday.

Good Luck!


And we have two winners. Sorry, I didn’t get these posted last night but here they are.

Congratulations Kathy and Wendy M! I hope you have as much fun playing with these as I have.

Giveaway sponsored by me.

YAY for a new oven – hope it’s awesome! OMG thank you for telling us about Tattly, how cute are they?! I love the popcicle ones, ahhh summer a little longer :D Yes, I have two tattoos and I want so many more. I have a rose for my cousin Michelle who past away almost 11 years ago just before I had my last baby. And then I have a special tattoo just for my hubby that only he can see. I super want to make that one bigger hahaa!

No real ones, but love the party set. My daughter’s 3rd birthday is coming up and she loves temporary tatoos. Her fave would probably be the cupcake with blue frosting.

I’m totally in love with the Party set! I have a tattoo myself, it’s a black skull with the cherry blossom tree around.

Heather said...

I have two tattoos. One on my leg that my best friend designed when we were 19 (it’s kinda like a star/flower). My other one is a 4 leaf clover on my inside left wrist. I want more!

I love the popsicle and ice cream cones! I have 4 tattoos.. 2 frogs on my back, and a small ankle and ear tattoo ;)

KIMBERLY said...

I love the lollipops “hence my name lollycakes6″. Personally, I don’t have any tats. I want to be the last remaining person on the planet without one. I’m square like that.

I don’t want to be 85 and the tattoo I got at age 21 looks like something creepy and unrecognizeable. Smiley face vs angry bird.

However, I like the creativity of them on others. ;)

Nicolette said...

I like the “let’s party” tat!

August 15, 2013 01:25 PM
Lisa said...

I have a tattoo that says ‘life isn’t about finding yourself. life is about creating yourself.’ It has a special meaning to me. I got it after my divorce.

August 15, 2013 01:44 PM
Rachael W. said...

I love the cupcake one! I do have a real one, about the size of a quarter, that is a black outline of a peace dove holding a branch.

August 15, 2013 01:44 PM
Gina said...

I like the it’s my party one. But I work at a frozen yogurt place so I think it would be fun to wear the swirl cone.

August 15, 2013 02:11 PM
Mint said...

I love the “you rule” one and the kitty “let’s party” one! They’re all so cool and adorable!

I want a real tattoo, but am too indecisive, and also a wimp when it comes to pain. LOL….I might need to invest in this packet soon, if i dont win!

The “It’s my party” garland is my fave. I’m considering a tattoo with a cross with a blue ribbon around it for my mom who just passed away from colon cancer. I’d like to honor her.

Sue said...

Love the popcicles!

I don’t have a tattoo, but I always wear a bracelet that has the words of my late daughter’s tattoo, Joie de Vie (in her own handwriting, on her left wrist). After she passed, a bunch of her friends had me print out the picture, so they could have it recreated on themselves (some in the same place, some on other body parts).

August 15, 2013 05:43 PM
Becky W. said...

I love the ‘you rule’ one, it reminds me of the David and Goliath tshirts! They would be fantastic to give to my little girl’s party guests at her birthday party in September. X

I have 2, one that I was very stupid to have, which then needed covering up, and my star sign on my hip. :)

August 15, 2013 05:53 PM
Pamela Fortin said...

I have missed you~! I have checked every single day for an update. I was hoping you were not ill. Prayers were with you.

You Rule is my favorite one!

I love the “you rule” tat… because its totally true…i do rule!!!

I think its a great thing for kids to have on their skin, rather than all the skulls and “typical” fake tattoos… Motivation you can really see :)

Mary Pat said...

Love the Birthday garland — wish I’d known about it last month when I was planning my mother’s surprise 75th party. Her nieces kept asking her if she was going to get some ink to mark the event — this would have been a perfect way to shock her adoring crowd!

August 15, 2013 07:08 PM

Pat in Oak Ridge said...

I have 4 tattoos. an iris (tennessee state flower), a butterfly about to light on the iris, another flower, and a lady bug. My sister, niece and I all got lady bugs on our feet. the plans were for the rest of the girls to get a lady bug when they got old enough, but they elected to get other tattoos instead. but we’re all planning on getting a flip flop tat to honor our fun times at the beach. I love tatoos. My daughter is really tall, and she had a giraffe on her leg, and an outline of the state of TN on her back!!!

August 15, 2013 10:25 PM
Tammy Radon said...

I’m liking the giant lollipops….very cute and they just always remind me of when I was young…which I am not anymore :) I love letting my daughter have all the fun with this stuff now though!

I love the birthday set! I have two tattoos, a small black dragon at the base of my neck and a sleeping baby dragon on my right ankle. My father drew dragons for me as a child to help with my fear of the dark, so I became a little enamored with them.

Chelsea said...

I have 4 real tattoos. My first goes across my upper back and is a tribal that comes to a heart in the center with a monarch butterfly in it. My second and third I got at the same time; they are on the sides of my upper calves. On the left is a hand drawn water moon and on the right is a hand drawn fire sun. My husband got the exact same things on his forearms at the same time. My 4th is a heart shaped yin-yen in pink and purple above my right ankle that I got in the same place and the same time as my best friend in the whole world.

August 15, 2013 11:35 PM
Ying said...

I don’t have a real tattoo, but I’ve always thought of getting one!

Do you have a tat? I have one – the size of a nickel, on the inside of my right ankle – a black heart in flames….. It was a really bad divorce….. Long, long, long time ago. As for the cutie tattoos, Cupcakes – any day and every day! Thank you, as always, for doing what you do!

August 16, 2013 12:12 AM
