Couple of cool things this week! We got a fab mention on the Appalachian Ridgeback website http://theappalachianridgeback.com/?p=647 which was lovely. We are doing cakes for 300 for the Blockade Runner’s EASTER Buffet. How, you ask, in my 10ft of kitchen with my 2 KitchenAid mixers? Well, I haven’t gotten that far yet. Had Rims on theContinue reading “Tiara Casual, Dahlinks.”

Yay for snow! It looks lovely! It’s actually snowing sideways out here in the sticks where I live! Anyway-we will NOT be open today. Sorry. If you’re coming out be careful!!!!
Good Morning America! My friend, Guy, took this picture of the carved wooden sun that hangs in our shop! Mom and I found this years ago at the Azalea Festival of all things! This is the look I frequently see on people’s faces as they tuck into a warm scone and a piping hot cupContinue reading “I’m such a Card!”
After the Feast of the SouthEast I have now decided I will quit baking and expand my mini farm. OK, not really, but I always love farm talk! I made quite a few treats for the event-some of which were then ordered in bulk for the next 3 days! So, while I’m supposed to beContinue reading “Change of Plan”
