We're Back!

Whew, the blog is live again, but not quite updated. You'll notice that some of the archives aren't working right now, but we should be correcting that very soon.

It's been a crazy few weeks for us here - after launching our new site our email was down for several days and then we had this little event for the Ace of Cakes book (you may have heard of this cable network show? Did you see Duff on Oprah yesterday??).

The line went down the block and around the corner...in the rain.

Here was Charm City Cakes' take on that day.

The event may be on the next season of Ace of Cakes!


So we're slowly but surely getting back in the groove around here. Feel free to email/IM/call us if you experience anything odd with online ordering or with any questions at all!

Are you a Hero or a Villain?

Brian Ralph Comic In Today's B Paper

To celebrate this weekend's Baltimore ComiCon, Brian Ralph created an all new 8-page comic of aliens visiting Baltimore in today's B Paper.

They start out downtown, enjoy Natty Boh, visit Hampden and Atomic Books and end up at a Ravens' game.

B: The Paper is distributed for free in orange boxes around the city.

Baltimore, You Weirdo

Baltimore Magazine's Baltimore, Why the Edge? asks various Baltimoreans about Baltimore.

From John Waters:
"It's the extremes of Baltimore, the parts that aren't like anywhere else. It's the fact that people don't want to leave Baltimore, and they look at you peculiarly if you say you're moving to New York. They say, "Why?"
