"Without ice cream, there would be darkness and chaos" (--Don Kardong)
Saturday was a fairly cool spring day in North Carolina, but it was a great day to head to the Sugarland Bakery in Chapel Hill with the local sketch group. I met Laura Frankstone at her place, and we zipped off to this wonderland of sweets on Franklin St.
Not too many local sketchers showed, but we felt obliged to do our part, and immediately sampled some of the showcased gelatos. I settled on a delectable dish of the Dulce de Leche, always a big fave of mine, and I was not disappointed. Yes, my root canal-ed tooth has finally settled down enough to indulge. (I know--these forays into the land of sweets are probably the reason I'm dealing with a root canal to begin with; what can I say.) Hey--at least I took pains to eat it on the other side of my mouth!
My eyes lit on a counter with a sample wedding cake and a peacock perched above the cake. (My scan here is a bit wonky and tilted.) I really hope you'll take a look at whatever Laura winds up posting, because her sketches, as always, were amazing. Thanks for a fun afternoon, Laura!
