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.

I have 2 tattoos! Well, three kind of. I have one on each foot that are Harry Potter tattoos – one says Mischief managed and the other is foot prints, both from the Maurader’s map. The other is a sagitarius archer symbol on my arm.

I like the birthday banner one! I have two Chinese symbols on my back. When I got them I intended them to be like a timeline all the way down my back, down my legs (over time). Since then, I still love the 2 I have, but have decided I don’t want the full length of them down my body!

I love the Popsicle tattoos!
I have 6 tattoos myself, but I am very private about them. Although, I have two big one on my back that “escape” when I wear tank tops and I cannot hide them. I’m a teacher, so I try to keep them to myself.
Keeping my fingers crossed to win, and THANK YOU :-)

Mich said...

These are all totally adorable. I love the tattoo with the cat head that has the party hat on. (it makes me laugh…)
My daughter and I love these temporary tatts. I have only one myself and it’s a sun near my ankle. (I got it during a college haze- but now I have it for life!) As my 4 year old says…”Your’s isn’t fake, Mommy- it won’t come off!”

I think the party set is adorable! I have a real tattoo, a celtic knot on my ankle that I got 19 years ago. I’d definitely have gotten more, but I was a poor grad student at the time.

Kari Vriesema said...

My fav is “it’s my party” and the cupcake one, I’d love to be able to eat one, but I had surgery so no solid foods. I’m kind of glad you haven’t been baking it would make me hungrier! Enjoy your new digs, and tell us how your oven bakes!

The ice cream is so adorable

Robyn said...

The popsicle ones are cute, but I love the birthday designs.

When I was 19, I got a small tattoo on my shoulder of musical notes. Years later, it became obvious that the ink was bad. (You could run your fingers over the tattoo and it felt like braille. Ick.) When I turned 30, I went to a nice, clean studio and had it covered it up with a celtic design.

Congrats on the new house! I’m glad to hear you’re doing well. : )

August 16, 2013 01:50 PM
Karen said...

I like the popsicle with the bite out of it! I don’t have any tattoos – just can’t think of what I would commit to like that. But these are inspiring me.

I love the aperture tattly – I’m considering getting that in real life and it would be a great trial run!

I do have some. They are butterflies and all very tasteful (well as much as a tattoo can be) and all in very respectable places. :) My favorite one is my American flag looking one!

~Cathy said...

I don’t have any tattoos, but my husband and I were on one of those Rock ‘n Roll half marathons in Nashville and we stopped in to get smiley faces on the bottom of our big toes b/c how funny would it be if you were laying at the pool somewhere and looked over and saw that smiley face smiling back at you?! Howev, they wouldn’t do it b/c they said the palms of our hands and the soles of our feet constantly slough off skin, so it wouldn’t last, plus it’d be pretty painful. It’s still funny tho and I’m always searching for temporary tattoos of smiley faces but haven’t had any luck. ;)

August 16, 2013 03:39 PM
Siobhan said...

I have a few but some of my favorites are my black cat in a pretty ornate frame on my thigh, my cupcake equipped with a bow and batwings, and my candy ribbon bow with a big colorful lollipop and other candies around it on my foot :)

The ice cream cones are cute but I really love the birthday cake just because cake is my favorite thing to eat. No real tattoos yet, I’m only 61 so I want to think about getting one carefully!

Patricia H said...

I DO have a real tattoo… a few actually. I very beautiful piece of Chinese calligraphy on my leg that means ‘Peace’. Now, not that i don’t believe strongly in peace, but now nearly 40, I like to tell folks who ask that it means ‘chocolate pudding’ instead.

I love the popsicles! They remind me of all the times when the Good Humor truck’s melody would float through the summer air and all of the neighborhood children’s feet would slap the stinging hot asphalt in order to GET THERE FIRST. Love them all though!

August 16, 2013 04:22 PM
Quiddy said...

I love the icepops and lolipops best!
For some times, I thought about having a tattoo to hide two scars on my back. I never even started to do anything and the scars disappeared eventually. ^^

August 16, 2013 04:26 PM
Susan Y said...

I love the popsicles! It brings back fond childhood memories of buying these treats from my neighborhood ice cream stand. Thanks for the giveaway!

Erin said...

I have a tattoo of a shamrock on my shoulder so I take my luck with me. (It’s also a shout-out to my mom, who has the strongest ability to find four-leaf clovers than I’ve ever seen!) I’m debating about my second tattoo — “harmony” on my wrist, a reminder to always seek harmony in life, whether through music or relationships.

August 16, 2013 04:32 PM

I adore the ice cream cones and the popsicles ones. They are absolutely adorable. Great childhood memory and is still important to have a bit of fun especially in Summer. But then again Summer is about to end soon :’( … It’s a great time to keep eating these scrumptious treats to keep my Summer spirits up even though we are heading into Autumn soon. Thank you ~!!
