Sadly, we are leaving our little island paradise and moving on to Seattle proper. And as a going away we had some friends visit from California and Katie baked some Blackberry Hand Pies.
Just a quickie, but check out this beautiful cake Katie baked for our friend Jessica's birthday!
Finally! A visitor to our little island home!
Katie's friend Kyrielle came out for a little stay with us, while here, Katie wanted to bake with her. Their project: cinnamon rolls.
Bundt Cake has to be one of the most photogenic desserts ever. The texture, the geometric shapes, the height of it. I had a great time shooting, and eating, this delicious Blackberry Bundt Cake Katie baked.
