Coconut Birthday Cake

This past weekend I made this delicious cake for a birthday. I got the recipe from Always With Butter, which never disappoints. It was moist and delicious and the taste of coconut was not too overwhelming.

It is far from being a 0 calorie treat. I would prefer not to admit how many sticks of butter went into making this cake.

I found these white pearls in a cookware store near my house, and they taste awful are edible, but after I put them on, the cake seriously looked like a wedding cake so I am very glad I got these black and white candles.

Black always makes everything prettier.

The goal for this years Oscar party was Creative Black Tie, so here is what I came up with (including some bright red lipstick :) )

And my all time favourite oscar winner!
Fellow frenchy

I have been obsessed with Jean and his incredible talent since he first started out in Un Gars, Une Fille when I was little and I am so glad he won!

Walker Evans

The Cantor Center for the Arts at Stanford University has opened a Walker Evans exhibit. And I must say it was fabulous! It is amazing that Stanford has such a great little museum with FREE admission!!
I especially love his depiction of the depression era New York subway. Under a false name and with a well hidden camera, Evans shot unsuspecting passengers during a three year period to produce this amazing series of photographs.
His coverage of the Great Depression is just unparalleled.

Hats, Hats, Hats @ Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs wowed again as he unveiled his Autumn/Winter 2012 collection today.
The runway was filled with elegant brocade coats, thick tulip skirts, furry accents and multicoloured shoes reminiscent of Louis XVI. 
Most noteworthy was an array of hats that would make the Mad Hater proud.
