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.

I’m Awake!


I had a busy weekend in Second Life, so forgive me if I stop to take a little snooze. My new sombrero from JfL Hats is perfect for keeping the sun out of my eyes while I enjoy a little shuteye. It’s just as handy for covering your eyes if you are surreptitiously checking out whomever is walking past 😉

My outfit is from *Just BECAUSE*, and while I chose to showcase a standard colour, do hurry over to pick up the skeleton bone versions if you need a fast Halloween costume. The bodysuit, straps and leggings are separate pieces (although sold as a set) so you can mix and match for a variety of looks. Both my hat and outfit are main store releases, so wake up and get out there to do some in-store shopping!
