Day 46: Cake Spy

5 Jul

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

So today I bring you one of my favorite Seattle artists! Her name is Jessie Oleson, and she is responsible for the most adorable cupcake drawings ever.

She has done work for tons of magazines, companies, and (more recently) festivals! But she is also in charge of a website called “Cake Spy,” where people review bakeries, cupcakes, and recipes, as well as perform “experiments” in the field of baking. It is friendly, amazing, and just adorable to look at!

Click the picture below to check out their website! It makes me so hungry that I can’t look at it too long!!

Also, check out her artwork at the URBAN CRAFT UPRISING (this saturday and sunday at the Seattle Center! There will be more information on this thing tomorrow :))

Day 9: A Day Out In Eugene

29 May

Hello there! If this is your first time on the website, check out the about page in the top right hand corner!

How’s the world where you are, world? Today, in Eugene, it was wonderfully beautiful! The sun was shining, the air was cool, the temperature was fantastic. It was a great day to spend the day outside. And that is exactly what we did.

A friend of mine and I spent the mid-morning at the Saturday Market, and after a very long walk (and a quick change in characters), we had travelled from one end of Eugene to the other. So much walking, but so much fun!

After taking lots of pictures (and touching up the colors and things), I present you with a Day Out In Eugene

Day 7: Sweet Life

27 May

Hello there! If this is your first time on the website, be sure to check out the about page in the top right hand corner.

Today, I was going through my phone’s pictures when I came across some lovely pics of yummy cake.

Basically, if you live in Eugene, you need to go to Sweet Life.

This little bakery (found on the corner of 8th and Monroe) is a hole in the wall where you can buy a slice of the most god-like cake for 5 dollars or less. Plus their coffee is to die for.

I’ve been there twice since I arrived in Eugene, and both times I’ve tasted the sweet love of Orange Mocha Mousse Cake, which is like a solid block of orange chocolate with white mocha filling and another layer of solid chocolate on top. It is. It’s. I can’t even tell you.

Just take a gander at these slices of yummy:

Jamie's yummy Rasberry pie/cake thing.

Orange mocha cake. so heavenly.

I couldn't help it! It was so good!!

Seriously. Sweet life. Check it out because it is freaking incredible!!!
