I’ve been listening to Neko Case for a few years now and I have wanted to see her live from the first moment I heard her sing. Her powerful voice and incredible range tell stories so captivatingly. Thanks to some dear friends I was able to catch her latest show at Trinity St. Paul’s church in Toronto which is a beautiful venue.
From start to finish Neko’s voice rang out like a perfect chorus of bells. She hit every note with ease and with perfect control. I couldn’t help but watch with a mix of adoration and envy. She’s just amazing. Her band and backing vocalist Kelly were perfectly matched to her skill making for a memorable evening.

But here are a few of my favourite addictions things:
- Chai lattes. I can sniff out a Bridgehead/Starbucks from a mile away.
- Live music! There is nothing like a live show!
- Baking! I love to bake… cake, cupcakes, cookies… anything that can bring that moan of joy from my friends when they take a bite!
- It may seem strange… but I LOVE looking at photos of cupcakes!! You can’t help but smile when you see cupcakes!! Try it! You’ll like it!
- Learning new things! In the past 2 years I’ve finished a psych degree, taken cake decorating courses, I’m taking guitar lessons, learned to crochet, started Yoga, and learned a few things about social media and the science behind baking. If I had more time in my day I would have taken a resin course, pottery classes, thai cooking, advanced baking courses, and needle felting.
- Web stats. I love to know who you are! Where do my visitors come from? What did they click on? How many hits have I had today??
Why am I babbling so much?

The cupcakes arrived at their destinations!! Both packages arrived yesterday as expected and the cupcakes were intact!
The box was $5 and the overnight shipping through Canada Post was $10. The box was the perfect size, I wanted room to put packing material around all sides including the top and bottom of the box. I used flyers from our recycling bin as well as a few pieces of styrofoam to keep them safe.
This experiment was a success! Later this week the2scoops will be blogging about the cupcakes he received. For now here are some pictures the2scoops took of the packaging (thanks for the pics!):
