If The Shoe Fits...

The other day as I was walking across the parking lot where I work to the Bakery ( to get my diet Coke fix) I spotted this little foot/shoe just like this laying there, all by itself. It just made me wonder who lost their foot? Was it part of a ballerina on a Birthday Cake, that no longer has a foot? Or just a child's toy missing it's foot? I suppose I will never know.

It Was a Beautiful Day

We took a little break from packing and moving today to take a road trip to one of my favorite places. On the way we usually see these planes taking off and landing from Travis Air Force Base, but today we got a really good picture of one going right over us.
First stop Napa Style in Yountville.

Grey Sea Salts.

Isn't this the cutest? I have always loved it in the larger size, but this little one would be perfect on a counter or buffet.

Last stop Bouchon Bakery for their fabulous bread and Macaroons. I seriously want to learn how to make them.

And our last stop in St. Helena, Fideaux, to get the girls some yummy treats too.

The weather was perfect. It was nice getting away from the heat for a little while.

Sierra's Dessert Table

A couple of weeks ago I made the dessert's for a birthday party. The colors were bright pink, and black. I'm really happy with the way everything turned out. Unfortunately, my pictures were some how lost, as were Tommy's (what luck???) Andrea, who made the beautiful flower arrangements and helped me with the desserts did get a few, and I wanted to share them.

There were strawberry cupcakes with strawberry buttercream frosting, as well as the small cake on the top pedestal. Cream puffs, sugar cookies, lemon mini cheesecakes with raspberries and raspberry sauce (you can barely see them to the left on the second picture). Not pictured were Bakerella's cake pops and coconut chocolate chip blondies. Hopefully the next party I do I'll get more pictures ;)
