I didn’t do much over the weekend. Did you? I hope you were more productive than me. I just kind of sat around, did a wee bit of sewing, a wee bit of baking, a wee bit of reading. It kind of hailed/snowed on Friday.
Last week my mother brought me some pink champagne cake. When I was a kid, we would often get pink champagne cake from Ikeda’s Bakery (it later became the Hillsdale Pastry Shop, and now it is Baker & Spice, which is totally unrelated to Ikeda’s or Hillsdale. B&S does not have the great cream-filled chocolate donuts or the square maple bars that Ikeda’s and Hillsdale had. Sometimes change is not for the better!). I always loved pink champagne cake because it was so pretty.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got. I think I’ll go drink some decaf now.
The cake looks delicious – what are the flavors like?
pink champagne cake is a new one for me, but it does look lovely – what does it taste like? is there really champagne in it or is that just the name? i’m curious as to what the ugly sweater looked like….
Mmmm… that cake looks tasty! I am also very jealous of your unproductive weekend. Those are the best!
mariko you crack me up. lets see this ugly sweater…maybe i will leave an important bill at work or something.
Your mom is really lucky. It’s impossible to have too many ugly sweaters!
girl, i gain 10lbs just LOOKING at your blog! that champaigne cake looks fabulous!
Sign me up! That looked so tasty, I would have also forgotten my head with such a lovely distraction.
When I die I want to be reincarnated as a Pink Champagne Cake. How happy does that cake make people?!?!!!!!!
Wow! If Ikeda’s is closed, where did she get it? Don’t tell me she baked it… I would feel too inferior.
I don’t live in the area, I was just curious! And I too would like to see the ugly sweater…
mmmm 🙂 that cake looks delicious! And perfect for frosting afficionados!
