Super Sweet Blogging Award, CoC

In Cultural Musings, Playtime, Restaurant Reviews, Writings on April 2, 2013 at 4:18 pm


Maria (of Accelerated Stall) nominated me for the Super Sweet Blogging Award ~

Maria, thanks for the nomination.  I highly recommend reading Maria’s marvelous marveling of things that go What?*&#! in the night. Or by laundromat, plane, or tuk tuk…

Fluff and Fold, or Sounds of Cambodia.

The rules to this award (for me and all nominees) are:

  1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated them
  2. Answer five super sweet questions
  3. Include the Super Sweet Blogging award image in your blog post
  4. Nominate a baker’s dozen (13) other bloggers
  5. Notify your nominees on their blog

Without further ado let’s roll out the questions:

1.     Cookies or Cake?

Cake. That texture, the mouth feel. Velvety cake, soft frosting, all dressed up and ready to go in your mouth…worth the price of admission of calories alone. And they have boxes.

2.     Chocolate or Vanilla?

I love Sarah Vaughan. Adore her. I could get lost in the sound of her voice… a whole weekend of Sarah is not a sliver too much. But that doesn’t mean I can’t have a lost weekend with Ella Fitzgerald. Loving Ella is not mutually exclusive from savoring Sarah. Oh. Wait. I’m appealing to the wrong sense. I love chocolate ice cream. Adore it. I could have a lost…

3. What is your favorite sweet treat?

Princess cake. Marzipan, raspberry filling, soft pastry creamy stuff, all tucked in with the aforementioned velvety layers of (sponge!) cake. And it’s pretty. In pink and green.

4. When do you crave sweet things the most?

When I write about sweets. I’m very visual, so I have to be sitting in front of what I’m writing about. Cue: “Princess cake” in the voice of Homer Simpson. This can make for a sticky keyboard, and my impairment (the one that requires that I see what of I write) can be a very expensive handicap. Right now I want to write about…A San Francisco Giants game with a side Gilroy Garlic Fries in the foreground.

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?

This is going to be the most fattening question I’ve ever answered… (See above.)

Okay, question no. 5 is going to take some time. Hopefully a few of my 13 nominees for Super Sweet Blogging will share plates of their no. 3 answers with me to help with this dessert numerology.
