Oh fruity cake, you are a vision of perfection. Would you kindly find your way to my house and woo your way into my belly? It won't take much, I swear.
Forget the tradition of ham for breakfast on Christmas morning. I want this cake first thing in the morning!
Merry Christmas, Cuteologists! Thanks so much for sticking with me through the site transition and embracing our new home. You get three slices of cake this year for being my favorite readers!
I'd like to see a crew of fashion designers work with a bunch of pastry chefs to design amazing desserts. We could mash up Project Runway and one of those Top Chef whatevers and make a kajillion dollars! I could see this as Betsy Johnson's entry for a super simple petit fours.
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!

Nothing says love like a heart shaped dessert delicately dusted with cocoa powder. Sadly, I fear cocoa powder as it seems inevitable that I will accidentally breathe some of it in when I take the first bite and then I'll cough all crazy and destroy everything. How I wish I could enjoy a dusted treat.
