If this sweet little DIY pom pom cake doesn’t brighten your Thursday, I don’t know what will! Unless you had doughnuts for breakfast, in which case you owe the rest of us good vibes instead, but I’m not pointing fingers. Nonetheless, be sure to check out this ridiculously simple cake tutorial over on Julep today.

In case you’ve been wondering what’s happening behind the scenes at S+C lately, it can pretty much all be summed up in a very graphic image of me racing like a mad woman to finish deadlines for the rest of this week and next. I’ve also decided that I HAVE to get an intern or thirty. What are your alls thoughts on interns? Do they have to be through a college for credit, paid well, not paid at all if it’s through the university, any horror stories of things you wish you would’ve known before hand, is it easier just to pay for an assistant, do I need to preface working for us that I may or may not cry over cupcakes on certain days? Wow, if you stuck with me through that run-on sentence you’re already hired!

Local // Pondicheri

Believe it or not, I actually don’t survive on cookies and cake alone. For my behind the scenes meals I do tend to try and include more than one food group and protein here and there. I know, I know, I’m shocked too. One thing I don’t like to compromise on though, is flavor and a token cute factor, and Pondicheri on West Ave has plenty of both! I mean, how amazing are these flowing, patterned shears dividing the juice bar and dining area? I’m in love!

For those of you that just so happen to be in this for the sugar part of Sugar & Cloth, don’t worry, this mountain of pastries should tide you over…

Eats // Rose cocktails and floral sprinkles

We teamed up with Le Grand Courtage a few weeks ago to collaborate on the perfect signature drink for our first floral workshop, and I think we nailed it. I’ve been so, so excited to share this recipe with you! It’s just punchy enough, and even cuter than it is sweet.

Obviously I’m a bit bias on account of the flower petal sprinkle aspect (we all know I have an unhealthy love for sprinkles), but we put our own little twist on the Lillet Rose Spring cocktail from Martha Stewart on their cocktail boardFor those of you that aren’t local to attend the workshop, these would also be cute for bridal showers, signature wedding cocktails, or even girls’ night in!

Eats // Spiked crushed watermelon popsicles

I may be a week late, but better late than never to let you in on the spiked, crushed watermelon popsicle recipe I made for Lulu’s last week! Technically I’m not late, I just sensed you needed a popsicle recipe specifically for this weekend, am I right?

Don’t worry, there’s also shared how to make a non-spiked version, but what we should really be taking away from this is that they have the rind! I mean, how cute is that?! Pop on over there to see the how to, and I’ll catch you on Monday with more goodies! xo
