Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for September 25, 2011

White and Yellow Cake

Fall is finally here!

Oh, sure, it was still 91 degrees today.  But the light is different.  And it actually feels, like, permissible to watch football. 

So as the pumpkins and fall colors – and Halloween decorations? – start to make a little more sense, I just wish the mercury would drop.  Just a leeetle.  And incidentally, let me run off on a Christen-like tangent, because something was bothering me today, as I was shopping at the local Fresh Market.  And that would be Peeps, People.  Jack o’ Lantern Peeps.  Is this just wrong to anyone else?  I mean, don’t Peeps lose all their special Peep-i-ness when Read More

And if you are blessed enough to have your mom still with you, give her a big hug and tell her Read More

What a week for weddings it has been.  And to think – the season is just beginning!

The world watched Friday as Kate Middleton – now HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – married Prince William in a beautiful ceremony that was both modern and traditional all at once.  Christen and I tweeted and texted and Facebooked with our best girlfriends from all over, as we all enjoyed the elegant spectacle.

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for April 10, 2011

Multi color wedding cake and sweets

We will confess right here and now: it is terribly difficult to keep your figure when you spend hours a day reading – and occasionally sampling – the MOST luscious cake confections available on Planet Earth. Thank goodness for a gym and a handy walking path (oh, and a hubby who cooks delicious, healthy food), or I may balloon to the size of a small dirigible.

But we’re happy for Spring and lots of Spring-y things! Here in the southeast, we’re getting the first strawberries, and they’re inspiring us to make all kinds of yummy treats.

But you didn’t come here to hear me wax poetic about gaining weight and Read More

It was announced earlier this week that Fiona Cairns has been chosen by Prince William and Kate Middleton to bake their wedding cake. I’ve been eagerly counting down the days until my all night Royal Wedding Slumber Party (there will be one guest in attendance…that would be yours truly.) Since I am obsessed totally pumped about this wedding, I had to do a little digging on one Fiona Cairns.

I hit up the Fiona Cairns website and found Read More
