I've always been fascinated by silver nonpareils. They're so similar to ball bearings which are so fun to play with, but these are like ball bearings you can EAT! How fun is that?!

It's almost time to get back to the books. I can hear the three-ring binders snapping shut now. Wait, do kids still use those? Am I totally dating myself? I mean Trapper Keepers! Duh!

I need to sit down. I need to breathe calmly into this bag to keep from fainting because this is possibly the most perfect cake I have ever seen and I've been looking at cakes for a long while, my friends. I marvel at the gradient pinks, the delicate layers, the thin filling that doesn't interrupt the gorgeous color. And the little paper banner on top! Perfection! I can die happy now, thanks!

Epicute: Neapolitan Cake

I was always that jerk kid who dug out the whole strawberry stripe of the Neapolitan ice cream in the leaky cardboard box. I kind of miss those crappy boxes that were impossible to open without ripping the lid and you could never get them closed again and would inevitably end up with a puddle of freezer-burned nasty ice cream. Those were the days. Kids these days have it so easy.

I love a repeating pattern, especially on food. Even better when it's done with something as delicious and natural as blueberries. Nothing fussy, no artificial coloring or hours slaving over perfectly smooth icing, just a fantastic and undoubtedly delicious polka dotted tower of celebration. I'll toast to that!
