Piece of Cake

My friend Anna is planning her Los Angeles wedding from Pittsburgh, and is trusting ME to be one of her cake-testers!


This morning, I stopped by her parents, Judy and Gary’s, to sample a bunch of dessert options from Big Sugar Bakeshop




Little bites of each


Overall, I preferred the bars – I have quite a sweet tooth and the “bread” of their cupcakes wasn’t saccharine enough for me (though I did think their Chocolate and Espresso versions were solid).

Other faves were the Lemon Bar, Salted Caramel Brownie, Grasshopper Brownie and Coconut Bar (the latter two tasted like Girl Scout Cookies)


After all that sugar for breakfast, I needed some SALT. Currently sipping on a cup of miso while getting ready for an audition.

This day only gets better – I’ve got fun plans with Christy afterwards. Hope your Thursday’s a piece of cake so far too!

    I wonder if any of my friends are planning a wedding from afar? I would be happy to go ahead and taste test for them. When in doubt, always go with grasshopper!
