Pacific Northwest, part 1 day 1

It seems my trips to Seattle revolve around (besides the obvious-A and R) a lot adventures in food and sight-seeing. This trip is no different.
I thought it appropriate to start my day with checking out Not Martha-a Seattlite's blog.

Yippee-food. She was baking for a bake sale to benefit Japan to be held-TODAY at Cakespy. You may also want to check out the site, artist, entrepreneur, author-very talented woman.

What is not to like about baked goods, especially ones that benefit Japan and are at a shop with the words "cake" and "spy" in the name?

First stop? Cakespy of course!

Not Martha baked Jars of Stars. Cute cookies in a wide variety star sizes. There were cupcakes, cake pops, cookies packaged with origami cranes (had to have) cute iced flower ones (sure, why not?), Hawaiian cornbread (bought that one), meringues (check), and so much more.  The woman who made the cornbread and treats adorned with paper cranes has friends in Japan. That's her next to A in the top photo.

I love having a good cause to get fat for-why didn't I think of that sooner?

Not Martha's Jars of Stars, aren't they cute?
This is the donation haul

Isn't this a sweet package?

This is tomorrow's breakfast-love the paper crane

Amy wanted a paper crane, too

Hawaiian Cornbread! New to me-see the tiny paper crane?

This was one of A's choices, a chocolate cupcake with salted caramel icing which was  extraordinary
meringues - well, what's left really

Feeling a bit hungry, gotta go! More soon on Pike Place Market, weather, coffee, a newly discovered park with a great view, and a return trip to Senor Moose (and that is only day one)....
