Tiny Cakes Go Viral!

Admittedly, I probably should not use the word "viral" when talking about Tiny Cakes.

Also, I don't know if you can call it "going viral" when your sister bakes a recipe you put on your blog and then sends you photos, but I'm gonna go ahead and use some creative license here. It's my blog and I'll exaggerate if I want to.  The point is this: Erin made Tiny Carrot Cakes for Easter! And in this photo, you can even see the laptop in the background which is dialed into Knit Yourself Pretty. It's like a blog within a blog! Is your mind blown?
I think someone needs a Tiny Cake...
This last weekend, Erin hosted a little Easter party for all of her Berkeley friends. Oh, seeing these photos took me back to my Berkeley days, when Erin and I lived together and this very same group (we called ourselves the Fattys) would get together to do these very same things on Easter: Dye eggs and eat a bunch of food. Do you want to see what we looked like 10 years ago? Then click here!
Erin made quite the spread for her friends. Even mom's Christmas quiche! (Erin, was it extra salty like mom always makes it?)
My cake!!!
And at last, Tiny Cakes were enjoyed by all! I "think" everyone got their own cake. Isn't it fun to have your own cake? Not have to worry about who is getting the bigger slice? I think Henry was extra glad to have his own Tiny Cake. He does not look like he's in the mood for sharing.

But I do want to say thanks to Erin for sharing! And also Eva Longoria, whose carrot cake recipe is the basis for these particular Tiny Cakes. Get the recipe here.

  1. I would like to point out that Henry is actually on his second Tiny Cake in that photo.

    As for the quiche, sadly, it was not Mom's. (Because she forgot to give me the recipe. Although in her defense, she remembered while she was in church Easter morning and she did finally call me -- about five minutes before my friends were due. She gave me the ingredients first, and when I told her that I didn't have any cottage cheese, she suggested I find something "cottage cheese-like" in my refrigerator.)

    Liana, the quiche was gruyere. It was delicious.
