Whenever I make a cake for a friend, I ask if they have a flavor preference, hoping to make a treat that really speaks to their sweet tooth and makes them smile. That’s the whole point, right? A happy cake-eater.
Alas, 9 times out of 10, I’m asked to make something chocolate-y. Not going to lie, while delicious, chocolate-frosted cakes make me a little sad.
My sweet friends! I’ve been missing you like crazy these past two months!
All things, including my love of the sugar arts, had to be put on hold while we sold one house, moved into another, bought a different house, and then finally moved one last time. Phew!
Thank Heavens to Betsey, we’re somewhat settled into our new place and I’ve slowly begun eking out bits of time to bake, decorate, draw, and write.
Dude… let me say… it… feels… GLORIOUS!
I’m so happy to have a piping bag back in hand and I was even happier to share this colorful and super easy cake with my girlfriends. We enjoyed many slivers while laughing, drinking cocktails, and taking in the breeze on our new deck.

As I mentioned a few weeks back, my life’s been a whirlwind lately. We sold our sweet little house, moved into a rental house, and are now set to close on our next house around July 4th. Three houses. Two moves. Two kids. One husband traveling to Scandinavia on “work” for the next 10 days…
Yeah, that’s why the posts are comin’ at you super slowly and also why there may be a slightly bitter tone to this post!
