Sweet Treats!!

If I had a choice between cake and pie, I would almost always choose pie (cream pies excluded!). I love the variety of tastes and textures in pie. And the toppings can be so different too. My favorite pie is rhubarb -- just plain rhubarb. I love the tartness of the fruit with the sweetness of the glaze. Raspberry/Blackberry is a close second. I hardly ever want my pie warmed up. But ice cream is good!

I like cake, but what I really like is the frosting. Take a look at this fabulous cake (and check out their website for many more awesome ones!):

It looks like it has that scrumptious frosting that is full of yummy cream and butter and sugar. I might choose that frosting over pie....

This was our Inspiration piece for the SCS Challenge today. I love this challenge because it brings out such unique ideas from everyone. Here is mine:

I flipped over the patterns from the cake. The bow around the Chef's neck is reminiscent of the bow around the cake. The three large panels are all on Glossy White, then mounted on Real Red CS. The center panel was done with alcohol on a cotton ball and a Pink Passion reinker. I tried to color the cake in the card like the Inspiration Cake. There are Stickles on the bottom of the tray, because the actual cake plate was shiny silver. No stars, though! Oh well, my Chef is the star because his cake is so yummy!

And for more yummy treats: Post a comment to my blog through Monday, June 18th and your name will be entered into a drawing for blog candy!! Check back tomorrow to see exactly what is included. Have a sweet day!

  29. mmm pie... I am one of those strange ones who doesn't like cake... doesn't like icecream... but give me pie, I'll ask where's yours? and eat the whole thing.
    Your card (I thought it was a covered book) would make a great recipe swapping gift.
