You Had Me At Coconut Cream

I used to bake a lot of pies. I have a crummy oven now, so I rarely make them any more, but I always loved making my own pie crust, then filling it with something yummy. Toasted coconut flakes atop a pale vanilla custard, brimming with more of those delicious morsels – no meringue – in a buttery, flaky pastry shell. I can taste it now, if I close my eyes and shut my mouth (to prevent drooling down my chin).

I was so excited to see the latest release from {what next} for Collabor88. The “Patisserie” Kitchen Decor set is a baker’s delight. As usual, each item comes with texture-change options and unbelievably, each one weighs in at only one Land Impact each. I remember the days when a single table setting gobbled up 20 or more prims. With this set you can get your bake on with the full set for a grand total of only five LI!

If you need a place to display all of these goodies, head over to the Kuro main store for this pretty and practical kitchen. The timing couldn’t be better.

I may just whip up a batch of pie crust later. Writing about coconut cream pie is causing my tummy to growl. More likely, though, I’ll just see how well my memories satisfy my craving…then head to the bakery for a second-rate version I can critique with the hauteur of true Baking Queen.

The Old Kissing Bridge

The height of romance is a walk in the country, capped off by a kiss on a wooden bridge. The Old Kissing Bridge is the latest main store release from {what next}. It comes with three texture choices, plus lanterns and steps for decoration. There is even a sign that has three choices of text, plus a plain version in case you want to add your own. The bridge rests on stone piers that can be sunk into the ground or left exposed. On my land, it worked best to sink them, so they aren’t visible, but the texturing is lovely.

There are no poses included, but that just means you can choose your own. You can stroll, kiss or cuddle to suit your mood.

It is a truly stunning addition to your landscape, capped off with a kiss.
