My fourth and our winner!

I've been having one helluva sweet weekend, I hope you all have, too. It's summer, damnit, why hold back??

Yesterday, I baked a special 2-layer "America" cake... the top layer was blue, and the bottom layer red:

Here, you see the bottom layer coming together rather "spuma"-like.

Then, I sat and waited while the cake baked and cooled, so I could decorate it and take it to a party that night.

Tank: JCrew. Skirt: Mayan Connection, picked up at last weekend's festival. Sandals: Delia's.

Due to its moistness, the cake died a thousand deaths in between being taken from the oven and being all decked with my symbolist flag and sparklers. Luckily, I managed to glue the cake together with a second can of whipped icing, adding, I might say, a delicious je ne sais quoi to both taste and texture.

Yes, I am also responsible for the Peen-tini.

Yes... yes... light it up.....!


I'm proud to say both that the cake was a rather rousing success, and that There Is Indeed a Winner to the iPod Shuffle Giveaway!!!

Using's scientifically proven Random Number Generator, I determined entrant #16 to be the winner! Will the contestant known as BigGame please stand up? And then sit back down and email me at so you can get your Shuffle! Congratulations! In tribute to BigGame, a video from the artist they suggested to me, Katy Perry -- who really kicks it acoustic.

A great big thank you to all of the contestants for entering-- and keep your eyes peeled because there might just be another great contest lurking on the horizon!

Stay tuned,
