On American History Cake

@RK Fire -No idea if you will see this very late response, but the Giant in Annapolis (Riva Road) had them tonight, I HAD to stop on my way home. They are made by The Original Smith Island Cake Company. They had Original (chocolate frosting,I am guessing yellow cake underneath?), Mint Chocolate, Coconut, and Red Velvet. I got the Red Velvet, and my fingers are crossed that it is as good as it looks.

On American History Cake

@RK Fire -I don't think it is a seasonal thing, no! I can't vouch if they are tasty, but they are adorably small, basically single-serving sized. No idea if they are at all Giants, but they are definitely at the one in Festival at Riva in Annapolis, and at the one on Ritchie Highway in Severna Park. And I am pretty sure I am going to buy one after work today.

On American History Cake

@RK Fire - I had no idea I wasn't the only Annapolitan here. I haven't tried them yet, but several people I know swear that the mini Smith Island cakes at Giant are locally made and very good.

On The Queen of Versailles

I'd like to know more about the husband's claim that he personally, and slightly less than legally, got George Bush elected.

On Where Is Jane When You Need a Winter Body Wash?

@Monkey - Oh, KP :(. I know I have probably mentioned this on the Hairpin before, but I have found one thing that works on the back of my arms- Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Triple Action Toner. I use it in place of lotion after I shower, and I will definitely feel like a skin widow if they discontinue it. It is a BHA toner, not sure about the %, but Paula Begoun says it is an effective % and the formula doesn't have anything else that would neutralize the acid, which I guess is a problem with a lot of AHA and BHA products? Doesn't seem to do much for my thighs though, so will definitely be trying some of the suggestions here.

On Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week

@rayray - O.K. between your recommendation and Jane's, I am realizing that my strategy of only buying nail polishes from brands that specialize in nail stuff has been all wrong.

On Friday Open Thread

@Multiphasic - Oh wow. Hopefully you are done with the MVA, but just in case, the Annapolis branch is way less painful (relatively speaking) than those in Baltimore or Glen Burnie.

On Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week

@Jane Marie -Good to know, thank you! I liked that the descriptions on the Zoya page actually rated each color 1-5 for opacity, AND noted if they were better for cool or warm tones, so, hopefully I chose well under pressure.
