ConnorLoganPatrick-what? Who’s Irish?

So my foodielicious friend L.B. (www.lizbiro.com) made fun of me the other day because I totally bypassed Mardi Gras in favor of St. Patty’s Day.  I’m sorry!

Cake Post-er Child.

So-I have been MIA on the blog-but not for lack of love-just lack of time! We had a fabulous Valentine’s Day at the shop-thank you all!  There was a big 50th bday party for a friend and who requested a loose reconstruction of a Wayne Thibeaud painting for the cakes. It was a lot of fun, and yes,Continue reading “Cake Post-er Child.”

Howdy Folks!  Looks like we are opening late again today. We will open today at 10:30 a.m. and will close at 4:30 to avoid the ice over.  The boys and I were busy badgers yesterday and took (gulp) the Christmas tree down, and did laundry of the world. I also made some apple butter withContinue reading “Snow Day+Sheet Pan=Apple Butter”
