As we approach Mother’s Day, whether you are celebrating with your mother or paying tribute to her memory, we hit our recall button of the delightful flavors and aromas that came wafting from the oven as we patiently waited for what they were baking. Old school moms had a way of makin’ it, shakin’ it, and bakin’ it, without even using a recipe card. A pinch of this and a sprinkle of that, and Wahla! Oh my goodness, once that baking delight hits your tongue, you feel like you’ve been teleported to another planet.

You are invited to pay tribute in the comment section to your mother, grandmother, or anyone else who has been a mother figure to you and could whip up a pastry, pie, cake, or other mouthwatering baked delight without breaking a sweat. In my podcast, I give a nod to my mother Henrietta, with my poem “Mom’s Deep Dish Pear Pie Symphony” because she could throw down with a deep dish pear pie that would make you lose your mind. Thank you for listening!

I had the pleasure of talking to Angela Simpson, a phenomenal woman who wears many hats as General Manager, baker, and along with her husband Ryan, owner of a warm and inviting bakery, called Cake Affect, located in North Carolina. It was such a delight to sit down with Angela and talk about turning their passion for baking into a viable business dedicated to both her mother and Ryan’s mother.

Cake Affect is dedicated to using the finest ingredients to make their mouthwatering pies, cakes, and other sweet treats irresistibly delicious. I love their tagline “We don’t do it all but we put our all in what we do!” To find out more about the products and services Cake Affect offers, check out their website, http://www.cakeaffect.com. So, without further adieu, thank you for joining me on this decadent episode of Poetry, Pastries, & Pies – The Triple P Connection.

If your tongue doesn’t know what to expect

and your taste buds feel a bit of neglect

hit them with the magic of a special effect

when they dance with sweet treats from Cake Affect.

June is known as the big celebratory month for weddings. Part of the pomp and circumstance of the reception is the pièce de résistance, that focal point and conversational piece near the banquet table. Wedding cakes are created with as many frills and detail as the flowers, and the bride’s wedding dress. Here are a few whimsical and romantic extreme wedding cakes that are sure-fire pieces of edible art to tantalize any wedding reception.
