Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for October 28, 2012

Hello Hello, my dear readers!  I hope you are having a fantastically fantastic day!  And I hope that threats of gargantuan storms aren’t freaking you out too badly this weekend.

We bid adieu to Sandy here without too many worries…just a little wind and rain.  I sincerely hope and pray that all the weather folk out there are dead wrong, and that Sandy dissipates into the chilly Atlantic without so much as a whimper.  Hey – it could happen.

So, beyond weather, we have a Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for July 31, 2011


And so it continues.  The hot hotness of summer, I mean.

Vacation is over and school’s looming up before us here (we go back August 15 in these parts.  Ugh.)  It’s extremely hard to school supply shop when you’d rather be at the beach, yes?  Maybe someone needs to make some cute little plaid bikinis with matching cardigan cover ups.  And we can have apple tartlets in lieu of, well, you know.  So who’s gonna make the kiddoes go back to school if Mama doesn’t want to?

Fiona Cairns.


Late Friday afternoon while I was still at work, my partner in crime all things Wedding Cake sends me a link with the picture of the most beautiful wedding cake I have ever seen.

The cake was eight tiers-tall, and Fiona Cairns and her team spent five weeks prepping for the event.  We already know the innards of the cake were traditional English fruit cake.  Seriously, I need to get to England and try some of this “fruit cake” because the only fruit cake I’ve ever had comes wrapped in red saran wrap at Christmastime and tastes like…well… Read More
