Chocolate Fashionista Delights: Cami Cakes

September 22, 2009

Of course Chocolate Fashionistas have other obsessions besides fashion. My latest, cupcakes from Cami Cakes in ATL, the brainchild of Andra Hall, a southern belle who learned to bake with her Easy Bake Oven and grandma’s recipes. Since I am a sucker for a good cupcake with pretty decorations, the cupcakes at Cami Cakes are no exception. 

Named for Andra’s daughter Camille, Cami Cakes has more 16 flavors including the Classic Cami which is scrumptious yellow cake with piped pink frosting, the Classic Cami Vanilla & Chocolate, Mint Chocolate, CinnaSwirl, Strawberries-n-Cream, and the divine Chocolate Raspberry Almond Creme.
If you’re in ATL drop by the Cami Cakes Buckhead location and tell them the Chocolate Fashion Blog sent you!

Michelle Style: Celebrating the First Lady of Fashion

Michelle Obama’s style is captured in a new book, Michelle Style: Celebrating the First Lady of Fashion, by award-winning women’s magazine editor in chief Mandi Norwood. Norwood, who has worked for numerous publications including Company, Cosmopolitan UK, Mademoiselle, and Shop Etc., paints an accurate picture of Mrs. O as a fashion Icon. The book features color photos, illustrations, designer interviews, and descriptions of madame First Lady’s most unforgettable looks. An avid online shopper, Mrs. O proves that a good look, doesn’t have to come at a high price.
