Spotted: Vanilla Ruffle Cake

Today I was in Hobby Lobby picking up some party supplies when I spotted my ruffle cake on the front of a magazine!  Or at least it was what my cake was supposed to look like.  I guess I had the right idea... now I just need some ruffle practice =)

Holiday Weekend in San Francisco, part III

{American Cupcake in San Francisco}

Some people look for art museums, others look for international cuisine... me?  I look for local cupcake shops when visiting a new city.  Believe it or not, if you look for a cute cupcake shop when you're out of town it will lead you to a nice/fun/interesting part of the city that you would like to see anyway.  At least it's the kind of places I like to visit =) Sure enough, American Cupcake was located on Union Street which was one of the famous streets in San Francisco.  As I mentioned, this was my favorite cupcake experience to date.  I loved the lights, the presentation of the cupcakes, and all the extra details like the curly ribbons tied on the napkins.  The frosting was smooth and fluffy and not as sweet as I usually like it, but I would visit this swanky shop again just for the atmosphere.  It would make a great date night!

Holiday Weekend in San Francisco, part II

{Miette at the San Francisco Ferry Building}

One of the draws of a large city is having the perfect place to spend a lazy Saturday morning like the Ferry Building Marketplace in San Francisco.  Each storefront had a table in the aisle filled with fresh juices, teas, pastries, produce and flowers.  This was my kind of place!  What made our visit even sweeter was Miette, a charming pastry shop that offered cookies, cakes and confections.  I had my first macaron {pistachio} at this adorable shop and fell in love with their colorful cake stands on the top shelf.  I'll take one in every color!  Although we didn't make it to their larger store in Hayes Valley, this petite shop offered just the right amount of charm.
