Oh how I’ve missed you! Let’s get straight to the point of this blog.

I seriously find so much pleasure in planning a cake for any kind of celebration/event. Cakes can be so pretty and I love how they symbolize celebration! It’s not everyday you… Continue reading Spring Showers Bring Lemon Cake
Remember when I said I was going to blog 30 days straight? There is one more day left in the month and so far I’ve skipped a couple few days towards the tail end of this majestic journey. Like I’ve said before, I’m not beating myself up for not being perfect – who knew? It’s… Continue reading This month is finally almost over and I’m so happy.
