Hello there!

It's been a while! Life's been busier than usual and I've missed being here!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen some of these pics already, but here's what I've been up to:

Admiring all the cakes at The Bonnie Gordon Cake Show hosted by the Bonnie Gordon College of Confectionary Arts. (I can't wait to make wedgewood cookies inspired by this cake made by one of the school's teachers, Marisa Scibetta!).

Spectacular cakes, to say the least. (Cake above is by Joanne Wang of Mashion Bakery).

So many different, gorgeous styles. (Cake above by Shireen Whitmore).

And so many beautiful sweet works of art! (Cake above by Michelle Spagnoli of Cake Creations by Michelle).

Besides the annual cake design exhibition presented by the Bonnie Gordon College, there were demos by the school's instructors, a bake sale (yum!), and a few fantastic cake and cupcake design competitons. If you're interested in knowing a little bit more about The Cake Show and/or the Bonnie Gordon College you can find more information here.

I really marvel at the talent out there… and am inspired to try some more cake decorating (hopefully) soon!

Another thing which I need to try, is this cake ball roller, called The Easy Roller, which I saw at The Bakery Showcase. It makes 21 cake balls at once! I'm all for time-saving ideas, and having made these cake pops, know that this device would have made things go a lot faster.

Jennifer of Heavenly Cake Pops showed me how to use it a few weeks ago. It's even designed to be interchangeable with new inserts available for different sizes and shapes!  A little fyi, I just might have some exciting news for you about this cake pop maker below. 😉

Besides sweet adventures, I spent lots of time hiking in the forest to visually savour these beautiful flowers – trilliums.

Every year I visit the same hills which are covered in a blanket of them. 

This past long weekend was our road trip to see family… 

H-banana and her cousin had so much fun…

A weekend full of beach time, birthday cakes, trampolines, sprinklers, sparklers, fireworks, bubbles, backyard barbeques, and lots of family. 

Even Lionel made the trip with us, and enjoyed a little vacation underneath the hostas.
