What an awesome timeline of romance! The birdies meet in the Fall at the bottom there, fall in love during the Winter months, and have a sweet little family by Spring! Huzzah for life and love and sugar!
Broccoli is by far my favorite vegetable. If I didn't abide by the urban hipster bible and only buy local organic produce I would eat broccoli every day and never get sick of it. With cheese, steamed with lemon, in a casserole. IN A CAKE OMG! Making pictures inside food with a broccoli tree, be still my beating heart!
This cake makes me think of the book "Afternoon of the Elves" by Janet Talyor Lisle which I read when I was only 11. It's reminiscent of a girl in boots that are too big who spends all her time building houses for elves out of leaves in her back yard. But now she's all grown up and getting married to an equally elvin man and they are having a simple barefoot wedding in the woods.
