Cake is mostly empty calories (unless you're going for my extremely awesome whole grain coffee cake!). In order to splurge on celebratory sweets, we sadly must attend to the real food of life, and eat well MOST of the time.
One of my passions is nourishing food. Shocked are you? Why would one so in love with sugar be so keen on keeping it out of the every day diet?
Lots of reasons...maybe an entire blog's worth of reasons...but today, I'm just here to fill you in on a secret I'd like to let out of the bag: I make an AWESOME loaf of bread. (It ain't braggin' if you can do it, right???)

My whole wheat bread goes through a two-step process, similar to what Sue Gregg teaches, a lady whom I love and admire. Whole grains, soaked overnight to make the goodness in the grain accessible to our bodies and easier to digest, plus the good old fashioned triple rise...and you get some great results!
Just like the cakes, you can buy bread from me. And pizza crusts, pancakes, morning cookies...and now...hamburger buns.

The big idea is to have a bakery with a dual focus - Cake Lore, your go-to designer cake maker...and Bake Lore, the only place you buy bread and buns that you don't make yourself:). We'll see how that pans out.
Right now, there's a slice of bread with my name on it...mmmmmmmmmm.
