Ace of Charm City Cakes

I’m a baker…but not like the artists at Charm City Cakes. So, when I took a cake class there, I have to admit, I was a little nervous. I’d never done anything like that before…but I thought it sounded like fun. And, I’d get to have Mary Smith teach me – how cool is that? Since this is Baltimore, we have a friend in common, but I’d never met her…only seen her on Ace of Cakes. And I’m happy to report, she is as nice and fun and bubbly (and ON IT) as she seemed on the Food Network. (As I thought she would be.)

The week leading up to the class was a really busy one, so I had no time to even think about it, much less get worked up about it. I had a wedding gig – love when people give my brownies as favors! – and had a big delivery to make in Harbor East. And since I am a Langrehr, I arrived early, parked and walked to LAMILL (OH, I miss that place) to grab coffee for myself and for the nice lady working at the front desk at the Legg Mason building. When I got to LAMILL, I realized I didn’t have my wallet with me. The lovely, lovely barista rock star Echo Standing sent me on my way with two coffees…I vowed to pay her back. She said, no. And when I went back in the next weekend, she once again said I was covered. What a peach.

25th Street Station Project Halted as Developer Bows Out

25th Street Station

WV Urban Developments has announced that they have abandoned plans to turn an 11-acre site at W. 25th and Howard streets into 25th Street Station, a shopping complex that would have included a Walmart. In a statement, WV Urban Developments blames the “numerous appeals and filings by opponents” of the project for its decision to throw in the towel.

Opponents, including Hampden Village Merchants Association president Benn Ray, see a Walmart-anchored shopping center in Remington as a threat to local businesses in adjacent neighborhoods. And Walmart’s reputation (or, as the Sun would have it, its “perceived reputation”) for treating its workers poorly. Read More →

Can You Picture a Walmart at 25th and Howard?

For a second there, it looked like Walmart was going to stay out of Remington. Bruce Mortimer, owner of the 11-acre property at 25th and Howard, and WV Urban Development had gotten into a legal dispute, which was enough for Mortimer to go back on the sale and sell the parcel to Seawall Development Corp.

But the lawsuit has been settled, bringing WV Urban Development — and Walmart — back into the picture. Read More →

Cake Decorating Classes with the Ace of Cakes!

CCC classes

catch of the day fish (2)If you’ve lived in Baltimore for any length of time, you’ve probably had the Ace of Cakes conversation with at least a handful of out-of-town friends and family. “Do you watch Ace of Cakes? I looooove Ace of Cakes!” “Do you know them?” “Have you ever gotten a cake there?” “Really? It’s right down the block from you?” “Everyone on the show seems so quirky and fun!” Etc, etc, etc. And that’s cool. We dig having a nationally renowned cake bakery in our own backyard. And we’re even more into it now that Duff and company have started offering cake decorating classes where we can pick up some tips and skills, and of course, go home with our very own Charm City Cake.

Open Space, one of Baltimore’s most-treasured arts spaces, was hit with a two-alarm fire last evening. We’re glad to report that, aside from a firefighter who was sent to the hospital with minor injuries, no one was seriously hurt, and the living and music-recording spaces suffered minimal damage. One resident’s pet pot belly pig is also fine. The fire was mostly confined to the auto body shop that shares the building with Open Space; no word yet as to the damage there.

Anyone who wants to help Open Space deal with the fire’s aftermath is welcomed to stop by the building (2720 Sisson Street) today before 5 PM armed with “trash bags, boxes, moving supplies of any kind, transportation, storage, and… helping hands.”

How Many Baltimoreans Does It Take to Screw in a Project Lightbulb?

Light

Was it all a well-lit dream? We called them and they came to our house last week, free of charge: a young man and woman with energetic minds, energy-efficient ideas, and a big, fat supply of compact fluorescent lightbulbs. They sweetly complimented the art on our walls. Then they walked about and worked quietly for 45 minutes, politely surveying our place and tweaking our technology to help us use less water and electricity without missing the lack. The next day, we still had our CFL bulbs in place! So clearly these bright-eyed lightbulb kids were real. Wait, it gets better. Read More →

 In a Pickle

catch of the day fish (2)In the last few years, urban gardening has taken hold as the new must-do for anyone who’s living in the city and lucky enough to have a small patch of grass in which they could plant something. We’re growing tomatoes, herbs, and zucchini (so many zucchini), and the more adventurous of our neighbors even keep bees and the occasional chicken. And if you’re lucky (or a skilled gardener, rather) you may just end up with a bumper crop—an abundance of fresh food that really ought to be preserved, so that come winter you can still enjoy the fruits of your spring and summer labor.  One of the oldest preservation methods (and one that almost every culture practices in some form) is pickling. And who’s the local master of this ancient form? Well, when a local pickle company has as actual fan club (and they do), you probably need look no further… Read More →
