Recipe to Riches Addict! Cakes & Desserts by Melissa

Remember last week when I confessed what a hardcore Food Network Canada/Recipe to Riches fan I am? You may recall me telling you that I've dragged my husband and toddler deep into this addiction with me. Yes, I have a soon-to-be three year old who can point out the Recipe to Riches displays at grocery stores and name the winners and their recipes.

I've been chatting on Twitter with Melissa from Recipe to Riches quite a bit these days. You remember her, right? She and Jacqui competed for the winning cake recipe. Hers was the Banana Chocolate Wow Cake and Jacqui's was the Rockin' Peach Bliss Cake.
Twitter is an amazing thing. It really is. How cool is it that you can Tweet with contestants of a show like that? Melissa is so sweet and so funny.  If we lived closer, I'd get her to bake her Banana Chocolate Wow Cake for Little One's 3rd Birthday on 11/11/11! We do have a fabulous baker/cake decorator who will be baking Little One's Dora cake, but one of these days we'll have to get  Melissa to bake us a cake! Even if it means going to visit her in Calgary!

Here are a few of her Tweets:
