Vacation Inspiration

keychain

Maybe it is just me, but when planning my vacations, where and what I am going to eat are top on my list.  That is probably why I need to exercise off weight once I get home!  Anyone one up for a walk to China?  Seriously, it is the best way to find out about a region.

Vacations clear the mind, making room for new inspiring ideas.  Inspiration can come from a book title, street sign, menu, or a conversation.

I was working on a Vintage Kitchen  Stack Cakes prior to leaving for vacation.  I had two versions planned and then ate what was possibly the best cupcake I had ever tasted at The Chocolate Moose Bakery  in Greenville, NC, leading to a third version of a stack cake.

What else may come to Vintage Kitchen from my recent vacation?  Cupcake Happy Hour for adults who want to make and take boozy cupcakes home (or eat them all in one sitting- no judgment at Vintage Kitchen.)

Homemade Gathering classes to get ready for the holiday season where we will craft and prepare foods for your hosting and visiting needs.

Before Halloween, the kids can get into the kitchen for Creepy and Cute Decorating of cookies and cupcakes.  No need to mess up your kitchen!

If you are interested in any of these, send me an e-mail.
