Happy Bastille Day! 

Lloyd and his good friend Hannah were the hit of the Poodle Parade last Saturday, in honor of Bastille Day, and sponsored by one of my favorite shops in Oak Park, The Careful Peach. http://www.shopcarefulpeach.com  Lloyd was a classic Frenchman, and Hannah the French maid.  It was a lot of fun.

DSCN1589The store also had a sale on anything French, so I bought a small Eiffel Tower, and this absolutely adorable cake pan.  How could I turn that down?  Sofia wants her birthday cake to be a Barbie Doll cake like she had at age 6, on top of this platter.  Never mind that she is in her 20’s, I do too!
