Online Yard Sale: KH Etsy

Hey kiddies - It's too cold to have a spring cleaning sale outside in front of the shop so I decided to do something even better: host an online yard sale through Kanibal Home's Etsy site. I'll be adding new products every day for the next week or so. Here's a few examples of what you'll find:

Cooking with Kanibal: Cupcake Throwdown

So I'm pretty pissed. I just got done with an epic throwdown of monumental cupcake proportions when I spied this:
<------------------- (via Cupcake of the Day)

What the shit? There's nothing I love more than food + furniture. So you're telling me that someone one-upped me in that department the day after I decided to have a bake-off with Rita from Rubella??!! What are the chances? Why didn't I stumble across and steal this idea as my own sooner? My tinfoil liner now looks WAY lame in comparison.

If you're curious, here's the back story behind the above rant:

One gloomy day in the shop I was perusing the inter-webs and came across a cupcake site that looked rather promising. Further procrastinating, I sent it to Rita because (like myself) she is a bit of a foodie. Actually she is the only person outside of my crazy family (Dad, I'm talking to you and your love affair with pork chops) that gets so overwhelmed with passion when talking about a meal that they almost start to stutter with excitement. So Rita had the magnificent idea that we should each pick one cupcake recipe to concoct: she chose savory and I selected sweet.

KANIBAL CUPCAKE: Port Wine and Cherry Chocolate Cupcakes with Mascarpone Frosting

RUBELLA CUPCAKE: Cornbread Cupcakes with Goat Cheese Frosting

I know Kanibal + cupcake doesn't always get the saliva flowing, but we'll let Rita be the judge of that (we divide up our concoctions tonight). In my opinion, you can't really go wrong with chocolate, booze, cheese and butter but weirder things have gone wrong for me when baking. I have complete faith in Rita, though. After all, she is the person who told me that there actually is such a thing as a waffle cupcake with maple syrup glaze and fried chicken filling.

New Window: Willing Winter Away

I'd like to start this post with a firm statement: Don't judge me based on the shop's current window design. I know it's a little early. I know it's a bit bright. But you have to understand --- I'm freezing. I have ice water for blood. So right around now every year I start up with the Caribbean getaway fantasies.

That said, here's a look at the new shop window. I'm going to will the warm weather to come quickly.

(Cutting down the old decor and installing the new pieces ...)

(If I'm going for a tank top, why not just jump head first in with a jean skirt, right?)
