Queen of the Jungle

Hello, and welcome to Food and Wine Wednesday!

Oooh, cake! I loves me some pretty cake! Especially one that teases the imagination. Check this out:

Isn’t it cool? Some uber-talented baker created this for our local county fair. And while I loved the details, I thought there was something missing: the Queen of the Jungle! (Natch!)

Seems to me she shoulda been at the top of the display instead of the zebra. *thinking hard* Yeah! And she should’ve worn a leopard-print dress and a crown made of something really cool. . .. Like . . . like . . . Hmmm. . .. Any ideas out there?

Happy Food and Wine Wednesday,



Happy Mash-Up Monday to you! And thanks for stopping by.

This year’s county fair was pretty awesome! Gave me a chance to envy peeps with a green thumb – mine tends to be the bearer of bad news to plants that depend on me for stuff like, oh, I don’t know . . . water, maybe? (Let alone fertilizer and bug repellant.)

Anyhoo, here were some of this year’s entries:

Pretty aren’t they?

Are you a fan of succulents?

Happy gardening,
