Dispensing Happiness

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.-Elsa Schiapirelli

That's me, the magical good cook.

Borrowing from my friend Dexygus, I've created my own food blog.

Read of my exploits in the kitchen! Salivate over the descriptions of fabulous desserts and savory meals I've concocted!

No, seriously...go ahead. It'll make my day.

Whimsical Birthday


For Matt's birthday last week, I made this fun and funky cake from The Whimsical Bakehouse.

Yes, it's supposed to be tilted. It's whimsical!

It's also one of the most colorful cakes I've ever made...leaving tiny, edible, rainbows every where.

The tilt is achieved by piling up the Cookies & Cream filling (cream, vanilla, and crushed Oreo's) a heck of a lot thicker on part of the cake.

It was even gorgeous when it was gone!

So nifty! The colors are so vivid they look a little toxic-looking but still... so cute.

That's so much fun!

Sadly, I think many of my cakes are unintentionally "whimsical"...

Actually, the cake was for Matt, not Alex...although despite being 'old', Matt's very much still a kid!
