Wedding cake or cup cake?

By | Just A Thought | No Comments

With thoughts turning to wedding cakes, Louise just sent me a link to “Baked by Melissa“, a cupcake place in New York that we’re going to try out.  Began salivating and couldn’t wait so I created two cupcakes of my own. The first is called Sunburnt (a red velvet jobby) and another called Bermuda Bride – an orange and pink creation, my favourite colours!

Fluorescent dots slowly disappeared from sight as people’s mobile devices…

Bolero Brasserie is absolutely one of my favourite restaurants. It’s perfect for an intimate dinner with a man who wants to whisper nothing but sweet nothings into your ear or a group of girl friends for gossip, giggles and everything in between.  La Chaine des Rotisseurs, an organization to which I belong, had arranged a dinner on Saturday night which involved a blind taste test competition.  10 different wines? Bolero? Count me in! The timing could not have been better as my hair appointment had been booked long before the dinner was planned. (If you’re ever in need of your tresses to be expertly cared for go to Strands and ask for Jette.)  I enter the salon with my dead straight, dragged-through-a-hedge backwards, lack-luster hair and I…
