a sweet afternoon

My willpower actually kicked in this afternoon as I went to the opening of Jen Roberts' new baking studio downstairs from our art studio. Sweet Element does the most gorgeous custom cakes and to die-for, elegant chocolates and delivers her edible works of art all over the country. This afternoon there were plenty to choose from.

I had only one cupcake(pistachio!! ) -- see the empty space on the bottom tier?
and 5 or 6 of her handmade chocolates, but they were all amazing.

I combined my visit to Jen's opening with a stop at my studio to pick up a brayer (where have mine all gone???) to pack for Bloomington, IN, where I am going on Tuesday to teach.
Stay tuned for the block challenge results in the next post.

I would have absolutely zero willpower in the face of all that. I'm a baking/desert addict. And proud of it! :)
