Though cake itself does nothing to spark the beach receptor in my brain, the gorgeous oil-painterly frosting job here is all vacation. It's like going to a destination wedding without spending $800 on plane tickets.

Ahhhhhh doesn't that look refreshing? Laying out on liverwurst beach with an umbrella and a lettuce bush nearby for a snack. We've been having freak hailstorms with lightning and thunder and then suddenly it will be calm. I'm ready for a steady shot of sunshine. Any time now.

Aren't the kids now taught to call them "sea stars?" And Pluto isn't a planet? And Cookie Monster eats things other than cookies? I feel old. I need some of this cake.

I have a complicated relationship with flip flops. they are very comfy, yes, and so wonderful in hot weather to keep your feet cool. That said, I don't think they belong in the office. Even a super casual office (and let me tell you, CheezHQ is as casual as it gets!) is not an appropriate setting for flip flops. Just get the ones with an extra strap around the heel and you're good.

Despite my reservations, these cookies would be more than welcome on my desk. You can send them to me at our Sea

It's pretty nasty out these days what with all the rain, snow, wind, chilly chilly brrr. Let's take a moment to remember sunny days on the beach. Aaaaaahhhhhh... isn't that better?

Sometimes you can't get to the beach, but you can have a little tiny beach wherever you are.

I like a tableau that takes up several baked goods. It's like a gorgeous panning shot in the opening scene of a movie to establish the setting and the tone. This movie is clearly about relaxing in the sunshine with no cares and plenty of snacks.
