Unusual Cake Combos?

Ya’lls comments on yesterday’s post were hilarious (click to view)! Especially #4! Glad to hear I’m not the only in this boat.


I WFH today so I made hubby and I some yummy egg sandwiches with a half Texas donut hubby picked up for us. Plus hot coffee…mmm.


My tomato plants are about to blow up!


This is my kind of “taste the rainbow”


Come to me tomato!


So I can eat you!


Mom’s fruit and nut bread.


I had another demo today! This would make my second time teaching zumba solo. So, after work, I changed into my zumba clothes.

Oh yea! Now I look the part!

I realized I never posted my playlist for you guys! I did the same list both Tuesday and today:

  • Hips Don’t Lie
  • Loba
  • Sugar
  • Tambourine
  • Boro Boro
  • La Colegiala
  • Blue Jeans
  • Jai Ho
  • Donde Estas
  • Maneater
  • Turn Me On
  • Let Me Think About It
  • Billionaire (my cool down that I made up)

Most playlists are closer to an hour, but since this was for a potential private class, I kept it to 45 minutes-ish.

I was pretty nervous, but it was AWESOME! Another successful demo…I’m so stoked! I had another wonderful group of girls. There were 34 people there and they were so energetic and FUN! They sang with me and I think at one point, the whole room was yelling with me! Woot woot!


Post-demo I went home, showered, changed and went out for a friend’s birthday party at a local gallery.


Since I forgot to ask permission, I guess I shouldn’t blog the birthday girl, but here’s her beautiful cake. Don’t be fooled by appearances….the frosting is not chocolate – it’s homemade caramel on yellow cake!





I had drinks with friends till after 11pm on a “school” night…gah! It was worth it though for some QT with friends. I gotta hit the sack now, though. G’night!

So, I had never heard of caramel frosting for cake. What’s the most unusual cake combination you’ve ever had?

    Wow, your tomatoes are really coming along! In London we have just started to get little green tomatoes. Hopefully they’ll ripen soon!

    I don’t really eat cake (I have more of a salty tooth than a sweet one) but I did used to make a chocolate and grated zucchini cake from the Chocolate & Zucchini website. The only one I make these days is a lime, coconut and mint one, which takes hours, so it’s a once a year – birthday! – affair. The last time I made it I was so tired I went to bed and then work up and realized I’d let my glasses on.

    I think zumba might really be starting to take off over here. The classes in my area are all in working hours, so I never really make it. However, it was at our local fair/festival the other week, so maybe they’ll start rolling it out a little more… I hope so!

    Have a great day :)
