Just In Time For Valentine’s Day

I just need one thing on Valentine's Day: lots and lots of chocolate! Lots and lots of chocolate! I don't care how you give it...

This is all we had in measly Portland, Oregon.


And what is that, you might ask? That is Oregon state’s solitary Decorette Shop, all 300 square feet of it-don’t let the upstairs fool you! And, don’t believe what they say on the ‘about page’ about being knowledgeable, not true at all.

Keeping that in mind, a few months ago Bakerella posted a blog series titled, Where I Shop: Cake Art Party Store! This fabulous shop is located just outside Atlanta, Georgia, but I like to think that it’s secretly in heaven. A little known fact is that Gabriel and I nearly eloped to Atlanta, and before we moved to Utah we were dead set on a move to Cary, North Carolina. At least in Cary we would have been only 6 hours away, as opposed to 29 hours! (I’m still not giving up on the move to Cary…)

Now… I don’t adore Bakerella because of her darling cake pops, or her intensely creative spirit, though all good things. I adore Bakerella because of her insatiable genuine personality that shines through every blog post. However, when she posted her blogs: Where I shop Part 1 & Part 2 & Part 3, I uncovered another emotion I had for Bakerella: Envy. What a lucky girl!!


Then we moved to Utah, and I discovered… not only… Baker’s Cash and Carry, but… Orson Gygi! At Baker’s Cash and Carry I was swimming in 10 pound bricks of chocolate. Plus, with the opportunity to sample each different type, I decided upon my favorites:

Callebaut #821 Milk Chocolate
and…
Guittard French Vanilla Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate


At Gygi I had to control myself, not a behavior I’m all too fond of. But, knowing I could return in the very, very near future, and knowing what an indulgent husband I have, I simply selected a few wonderful and much needed items and in honor of Bakerella, I picked out some lollipop sticks and copied her pick for darling cupcake liners! Now I can say, finally, lucky me!

  1. I have to shop…online 🙁 While Hobby Lobby & Michael's carries a basic selection of baking & decorating supplies, I find that most of the time I just want MORE! I especially love Country Kitchen Sweet Art, Bake it Pretty, Karen's Cookies.

  2. I have only had the opportunity to visit Baker's Cash N Carry once or twice while in Utah but I loved it and the prices are so much better than here in California! Do your chocolates of choice have to be tempered?

  3. I've heard of Baker's Cash N Carry a ton. I really should make a trip out there sometime. And I love Orson Gygi even if I don't shop there that often. That pic of you above? ADORABLE! Hope to see you again soon–I devoured your fudge the night I visited Tom & Lucy's Art Shoppe. YUM!

  4. That is MY kind of chocolate! I know you'll be able to do some delicious treats out of that because your pecan bars are out of this world! (Does that make sense – I hope so)

  5. I'm not sure why I have not explored Bakerella more but when I saw her link in your post I thought I'd devote some time. Holy smokies that woman is amazing!
