My friend Heather is one of the great corrupting influences in my life. She introduced me to Cake Wrecks, and now every few days I click over and catch up on the madness of professionally decorated cakes gone horribly, hilariously wrong. No matter how wiped out, down, or stressed I am, Jen can usually get at least one serious belly laugh out of me.
And just today in my inbox I had another email from Heather–this one alerting me to Epicute, a “cute food blog.” Most of the food is approximately 80% sugar, but I think that’s all to the good. First of all, food made from sugar can reach dizzying heights of beauty. (Remember Hansel and Gretel?) Second, perhaps if I look at enough blogs like this it will satisfy my nearly insatiable craving for sweets. You know, like when I worked at McDonald’s and they’d put me in front of the fry vat. I could go to work hungry, and 8 hours later go home satiated (without having eaten anything).
That’s my hope anyway.
