Mini Pretzels – 20 oz. bag sold by King Nut. Whenever I get an airplane snack of those itty bitty pretzels I think they’d be great in Chex Mix but can never find them later. This company sells them to the airlines and to us, itty bitty pretzel Chex Mix is on the menu for next holiday season.

    Speaking of dying with joy…I am so thrilled you’re groovin’ on my sprinkles!! Yay!

    I love the vertical cake. I have an insert for a checkerboard cake, which I think I could make the same effect with as long as I didn’t alternate the batters. Yum!

    I’m such a Delancey groupie. That makes me wish I still lived in Seattle.

    Ooh I’ve been following the pantry vaguely through Brandi Henderson’s blog I Made That but hadn’t heard all these details. Absolutely so exited about that!

    I hope (fingers crossed) that i am a baker will show how she created that cake. I love, love, LOVE that cake. i think Fiona would love it too in vanilla and pink. I especially want to know how to do the frosting. I am pretty sure if I did that I could get a 5-year old to swoon.

    Kay – Since posting it she’s put up a tutorial on how to make the frosting roses and has promised that a vertical cake tutorial is coming as well. Yay! You might have your dream cake after all.

    Fantastic news about The Pantry…can’t wait to attend a class. I popped over to Rainshadow at Melrose yesterday and picked up some delicious-looking duck confit for a cassoulet. Love that place and thrilled at the prospect of taking a class with them!

    Oh I couldn’t agree more on the rose cake, thank you for these!

    As soon as I saw the rose cake, I knew precisely what I want our wedding cake to look like! I’ve had a hard time caring about the wedding cake… and then I saw “i am baker’s” birthday cake and called and confirmed with our friend the baker that she can make it happen!

    …Thank you so much, Megan, for always sharing and inspiring creative and beautiful ideas!

    Jess – How wonderful! And best wishes for your wedding and your marriage, I hope both are perfect.

    Stephanie – I know people who have crushes on the Rainshadow guys. I’ll have to shop there more.
