  1. Sometimes all I want to do is cry. I don’t understand the violence. I don’t understand how a society that, not so long ago, has seen the negative effects of violence toward people because of something as irrelevant as race can repeat this fatal mistake over and over again. All we can do is try to spread as much love and understanding as we can. Sometimes that means showing up at rallies or protests for support. Sometimes that means sharing your passion and frustration in a blog and providing people with the comfort of a cake recipe.

  2. Thank you for writing about cake, too. The world still needs cake, if only to show that there is hope. *hugs*

  3. Yes, cake can seem trivial during times like this, but if you were able to go and give people a slice of cake and put a smile on their faces. Even if it’s just a small smile. A weak smile. It still helps in its own small way. But still. There shouldn’t be a need for it. You’d think that in 2016, we would have learned to love and acceept more and find peaceful resolutions.. that we could trust the people we give positions of power to.

  4. I’ve stopped listening to the news for the most part. It’s like anything else… best in moderation.

    Except for that cake! It looks delicious. I want to EAT IT ALL!!

  5. Thank you for writing about cake. It was needed. It is still needed – and some day, when we are all, as a society, able to see the horrors inflicted & know that the thought process behind the horrors is truly abominable, we will use this cake to celebrate.

    Love to you.
