My people (James and Hannah) have found a new source of entertainment on Netflix; Cake Boss and The Next Great Baker. I must admit, it's been a little bit of a distraction for me too. I love the artistic side of it, but my practical side just doesn't know how to absorb the frivolity. (Maybe I should just stick to cookies...)
Between Besty's English chocolate and watching these baking shows, my mind is leaning toward all things sweet and yummy. James and I found a small shop in Ridgeway, Ontario a couple years ago where imported candies were sold, but then in a google search I found this super looking German Bakery in Crystal Beach. Oh, my! I think I know where I'm going the next time I'm north of the border.
I am impressed by those who are able to build cakes, even frivolous ones. I'm not fooled into believing everything under that frosting and fondant is actually cake, but it does look like a lot of fun. If I could nominate someone as contestant on the Next Great Baker, I'd pick my sister in law Kim. She makes some pretty fancy looking cakes.
PS. Hey, Betsy, that candy store in Ridgeway has a Facebook page and guess what? I asked them if they have Cadbury Flakes and they said, "We sure do!"
