I Wish I Could Just Bake All Day

So the other day the word gâteau was rolling around in my head. I don't know why, exactly, but I just adore that word. Cake is so....boring. Gâteau is fancy. It is french after all, and whenever people want to be fancy, saying things in French seems to be par for the course. I made the mistake of looking recipes up on Pinterest, and found something that would fit the bill. "Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake Cake". Yes, that is a thing, and yes I made it. It took about 4 hours, and was certainly a labor of love. 

Here is the finished product:

Yes, it tasted as good as it looks. Here is what is in it; 2 round chocolate cakes, one pumpkin cheesecake, chocolate ganache, and pumpkin icing. Soooo good

In other news, I have some photos of an outfit I wore the other day. Wearing full vintage to school can be a little daunting. I stick out sorely in a mid length velvet skirt amid a sea of spandex and hoodies (I am not knocking this outfit choice as I have been known to rock this look, but I'm just sayin). This outfit felt very 40's/50's co-ed to me. I am a co-ed after all!

 I went to an antique store today just for a look-see. I ended up with two 50's dresses that I am not too sure will fit me. I eyeballed them because I don't carry a measuring tape in my backpack as I had just been at school. Oh well, if they don't fit, I could always list them in my Etsy shop, or lose those 15 pounds I have been meaning to :)

  1. That would make me a pretty darn happy camper, too (in fact - little known fact - before I became chronically ill at the age of barley 18, my career goal was to become a professional chef and indeed spend my days cooking and baking, but unfortunately that wasn't able to come to fruition). I love that word as well - it's right up their "chapeau" for me in terms of French nouns I love to slip into everyday (English) speech.

    Your outfit is super cute and timelessly pretty! I love the sweater weather is upon us again! Three big cheers for feeling cozy and looking stylish at the same time!

    *PS* Thank you very much for your lovely comment on yesterday's post. I completely agree that vacations go past wayyyy too fast. Two weeks at home can feel like months at times (depending on what's happening in one's life), but the same time frame on holiday whizzes past faster than you can "carry-on luggage!".
