Oh, I must try that cake. Looks delicious. My favorite cake is German Chocolate cake. Love the coconut bits in it!

I'm jealous you went to PW's luncheon. I've been reading her for over 5 years and think she's a doll. Have also tried this cake and know why you keep thinking about it. I like pound cake and carrot cake as of late - gluten free versions. Welcome home!

Everlasting Blooms said...

Welcome home! That cake looks delish! I have to say I am quite the sweet tooth..soo that being the case ALL cake gets my tastebuds going! :) I especially love chocolate with white frosting..mmm..and carrot cake too yum! I think I might go make a cake this afternoon :)

I am dying to make a red velvet cake sometime. I had a little red velvet cupcake from a country fair and it was amazing!

I said "what is red velvet cake" and they simply answered with "Some kind of cake americans love". So I bought it in the pretence that I have never tasted anything American's like that I have hated. Except corn dogs....

I'm a traditionalist: I love chocolate cake with chocolate frosting! And M&Ms on top makes it extra special. I love how the cake softens the candy part of the M&Ms!

So glad you're back home safely--can't wait to hear more about your adventures!

Welcome back Koralee. Glad that you had a fun trip. I'm following you now and have you on my blog list!
My favorite cake is chocolate with chocolate chips baked in, but the red velvet looks great!

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
My mother used to make a chocolate red velvet cake... it was soooo heavenly ~
Your photo is taking me back in time ~ I can almost taste it!

I'm so glad that you had a wonderful time at the Creative Connection.
'twas thinking of you all week and wishing I could hop over for a day or two!
We will all be so grateful to see this event through your lens ~ and through your words.

In the meantime ...
I bought the "Where Women Create" magazine for autumn ~ loved the "Balancing Act" page that you did. Wonderfully done, Koralee! {so excited for you too}
The magazine is SO beautiful... a real keeper~

It's almost October...and Holiday book-a-zine will be out soon too! Yea!

Glad you're back safely and with wonderful memories... Put your feet up tonight with a nice cuppa tea ~ tomorrow will be here just the same, and with a well rested Mrs. T

Karen Valentine said...

Hi Koralee! I'm glad you got back safe and sound! It was such a pleasure being your roommate. You are my new inspiration for learning to take beautiful pictures. I am so impressed by the pics I've seen you take, and amazed that you did many (or maybe all) with that little camera!!! I hope our friendship continues to grow over time sweetie. Have a great week. I'm sure your students missed you!

I'm glad you had a good time and that you are back! The cake looks delicious, which is no surprise! I love a flourless chocolate cake...if I have to pick just one.

Elyse said...

hi koralee,

looking forward to seeing TCC via your beautiful photographs. {was it as amazing as you'd hoped? i'll bet it was!}


Unknown said...

Sweet Koralee, all kind of "made with sugar" makes me dance and sing and close my eyes and dream!!!!! We had red velvet cake for Aila's birthday as I have a talented aunt for cakes!!! Soooo delicious!!

Welcome back, friend! Love! Bela.

Rosie said...

Oh Koralee, this is way too tantalizing...I will totally be trying this recipe SOON. Missed you a ton...There is a wee "little something" at the store for you. If you come any other day than Saturday, just ask one of the lovely ladies... it's wrapped in a perfectly PINK parcel...sounds like you had FUN, FUN, FUN....
Smile on Rosie

S and O said...

Mmmm, I've always wanted to try a red velvet cake but I've never found a good recipe.


Dawn Parsons Smith said...

Red velvet cake is simply the most scrumptious treat on earth!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Welcome home, Koralee! I so wish I could have been a part of your memorable week in my city. I left you a message, but you were probably way too busy to ever hear it! Red velvet Minnesota!!! Anita

paige said...

So glad you made it home safe and sound. I can honestly say that meeting you in person was one of the highlights of a near perfect event ... Well, maybe it was perfect! You're the best:) Paige

Andrea said...

heather said...

OOH, delectable! So glad to hear about your amazing trip and connections! I'm sure all the creative juices are flowing!

As for cake for me, a French friend recently made tiramisu for another friend's birthday. I hadn't eaten tiramisu in YEARS, and it's one of my favorite cakes... so I was pretty much in heaven :) Coulda been my bday!

Welcome back, Koralee! said...

Lemon Meringue! Cannot say no!

Tricia said...

That cake looks delicious. I wish you would tell us how you always take such wonderful pictures :)

Draffin Bears said...

Welcome home, dear friend, we have missed you.
Glad that you had a lovely time away and look forward to hearing and maybe seeing some photos.
The red velvet cake looks yummy - we do not have that over here.

Have a great week

June said...

Oh yummy! I love Red Velvet cake! My all time favorite is cherry cheesecake. I just made it yesterday for a family gathering for my daughter's 27th birthday. All of my children request it on their b-days, and I am only too happy to do it, so I can have a slice (or two) myself. LOL!
So glad you're back!

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Delicious cake and delicious memories Koralee. I can't wait to hear all about your trip. Lovely to see you back. XXXX

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Delicious cake! Love/ Eva

Suz said...

I keep losing you! I am in Croatia right now. Can you believe that my home town is St.Paull (I am a block from Minneapolis!). The bigevents go on and I am out of the country. I "found" Karen Valentine again and then I found you!

I am so sorry I missed it all but we are here for the wedding of our exchange student son, Petar, and would not miss that for the world. This is twelve years later and we are still close. What a wonderful gift!

I need your blog for my daily inspiration so you are going on my favorites and my Google Reader! Thank you!


PJMCNeal said...

I have been too busy to connect! And also out of wifi ---- it was a breathe of fresh air to look at your latest!
I have red velvet memories too, from being in Georgia! It is an interesting cake, for sure! i am still looking for "Where Women Create" , really loved the "Artful Blogging" , am so glad I got into this blog-world!

rachel awes said...

that looks like some delicious danger.
i love how you change up your photo often!!
welcome home with love! xo
