I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Weekend! All week I was eating super healthy so I can stuff my face with all the delicious Thanksgiving food. I woke up fairly early on Thanksgiving day and began making my signature yellow cake with cream cheese frosting, its my go to dessert when I am short on time. While the cakes were baking, i carried on with my day: i made sure to feed all my animals, then I rushed to get myself ready.

The little town is filled with a plethora of bakeries, restaurants & unique gift shops where you can find everything from custom furniture to wooden shoes.

Yellow Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
I think it is pretty clear I like to make individual portion sized cakes, personally its mainly because it is easy to serve & even easier to share… that is if you can resist not eating all of them. When it comes to baking a dessert, there are two things I take in consideration: Is the cake moist?There is nothing worse than having a dry cake! Secondly, is the flavor of the dessert balanced properly? Finding that perfect balance of sweetness & flavor is the hardest part of making any dessert. Don’t rely on all the flavor to come from the frosting, creating a good foundation of a great tasting cake will carry the whole dessert.
Fall Inspired Jewelry.
One of my favorite things to do is create jewelry, I’ve made everything from earrings, bracelets & necklaces. This time around I decided to incorporate fall shapes with fresh uplifting colors. For the earrings i took two mother of pearl shells in the shape of a leaf, added two Swarovski beads on each earring- choosing only blues & lavenders as my main colors.
Fall Wardrobe: Rocker Glam with an Elegant Touch
When it comes to my style its a little all over the map: Rocker, Glam, Classy, Sporty & Casual… or as I call it “Rocker Glam with an Elegant Touch”. Most of my wardrobe consists of leather, denim & lace. Did i mention the wardrobe is primarily all black, which led to my nickname “Johnny Cash”. To me there is something so enticing to wear black from top to bottom, with a touch of color in an accessory with a bold lip color. On a casual day, I put on a comfy pair of skinny jeans with a cozy oversized sweater, throw in a beanie and leather booties.. I’m in my happy place.
