Unfortunately, Elisa does not ship her cakes, so (unless you are nearby) just drool for now!

Singers' best kept secret

Cheesecake Novelties come highly recommended from a friend. Maizal, the "hands" behind the yummies, offers an impressive selection of gourmet cheesecakes that are halal. From the traditional New York Cheesecake to some very wicked flavors that you may probably never be able get off the shelves elsewhere, like the Rocky Road Cheesecake, Creamy Peanut Butter Cheesecake, Toblerone Cheesecake, Snickers Cheesecake.. you'd want to try every single one of 'em. Vegetarians would be happy to note that he does eggless cheesecakes too.

The cheesecakes come from mini 4" sizes to 11" and yes, he does wedding cheesecakes too!

"7 Months"

The swans are gone. Still the river
Remembers how white they were.
It strives after them with its lights.
It finds their shapes in a cloud.
What is that bird that cries
With such sorrow in its voice?
I am young as ever, it says. What is it I miss?

- Sylvia Plath

A little love goes a long way

SPCA British Columbia has a very interesting way to help you make your special day a little more special. The Biscuit Fund has a wedding registry that allow your guests to make donations in your name in lieu of traditional presents. What's awesome is 100% of the donations received will be used to help fund the medical care and rehabilitation costs for sick, injured or abused animals. What better way to start your new lives together by spreading a little love?

The Biscuit Fund also has wedding favor labels which you can download (with donations) and add to your favors to let your guests know that you have made donations in their name.
