Absolute Perfection!

I admire people who are consistent and great at what they do. My blog sister “Desertflower” is the definition of consistent greatness. I have been admiring her cakes and other wonderful baked goods for some time now. And I just had to share the photo she took of her latest creation. It’s is perfection! The detail is just amazing. She mentioned that she put Kahlua in the cake. I love Kahlua, so I can imagine how wonderful this cake tastes! And just look at the lettering. She did that by hand!


What a great job. This cake should win a prize!


10 Things I want for Christmas

Well, Christmas is just around the corner. I know this not because of the falling leaves or the Winter chill or because Thanksgiving has come and gone but because all the crazies were out on Black Friday.

I understand that most people want stuff and want a nice discount to go along with it but shopping on Black Friday is just crazy.

Anyway, since Christmas is just a few weeks away I thought it would be fun to compile a list of my 10 most wanted gifts for Christmas. And, maybe, just maybe, my girlfriend Santa will see my list and put a little something under my Charlie Brown Christmas tree!

So here goes.

10. I would like it if this country could find a way to house the homeless.
09. I would like the President to actually pay some Presidential attention to Black Americans, many of whom are suffering more than most during this recession.
08. I would like all foods containing Genetically Modified products to be labelled.
07. I would like a Easy Bake oven for adults because baking is hard!
