After nearly four years looking at the same boring blog layout and banner (Cake and Commerce - one girl's salt is another girl's fleur de sel) I decided to ask my friend Betty Turbo (aka Agnes), a wonderful cake maker and artist residing in Nashville, to design a banner for me in her signature style. Lots of cake. Bright colors. Obscure references to old cookbooks (she blew up an old cookbook photo of petit fours for the background). A good amount of pink.
What do you think? Good? Bad? Indifferent? Too girlie? Not girlie enough? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
And, if you get a moment, help me repay Betty's kindness (she did this as a favor!) and visit Betty's shop on Etsy. You'll be able to buy adorable screen prints, lino cuts, notecards, and digital prints such as the one below, her homage to William Carlos Williams:
