I planted mint this weekend too. I just love the smell. The cake is quite beautiful.
Your weekends seem to involve the most beautiful cakes! But how can you leave that icing on the plate? I would never allow that :-)
What a beautiful cake! Now that I have a little bit of time this week, maybe *fingers crossed* I can get to my little herb garden!
your herb garden has come along so nicely and that gin looks like the perfect way to end the weekend!
Cheery pink candles -- love how long and skinny they are.
I have never tried Mint and Gin. It sounds tasty.
Your garden looks like it's off to a good start. The cake looks so fun. What a lovely time.
My niece would love that cake, too! All those pink candles!
mmmmmmmmmmmm, you had me at cake! beautiful herbs.
I noticed a terra cotta looking bottle sticking out of the dirt with your herbs. Is that one of those watering systems? Where did you get it?
I'm drooling over that chocolate cake! Glad to see your herb garden is thriving. Mine on the other hand... Seems the only thing surviving is the mint! Time for mojitos!
the drink looks divine ;-) and the cake is lovely...lucky girls!happy monday.
excuse me while I lick my screen...that cake looks de-lish and the drink too...slurp!
I love the cake, so pretty especially the candles!
I'm not sure which I'm more jealous of - your beautiful handiwork with a camera, your ninja baking skills, or the lucky ducks who get to eat your cakes. What a gorgeous weekend!! xo
Cathy - the terracotta containers are indeed my watering system. They are called ollas (oy-yas) and you can find them at some nurseries or online. To see more about them, check out my posts tagged with "garden."Vanessa - no worries - I licked the frosting off the plate as soon as I was done taking the photos!
Oh yummm, a chocolate cake bathed in chocolate frosting sounds perfect right about now! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend-that drink looks especially enticing :)

Sounds like May is a delicious month around your place. That cake looks delish.
