The bird looks a little strange this year. Is it supposed to represent rising from it's ashes and that's the reason one wing is smaller than the other? I prefer previous versions myself. This one just looks out of wack and like they ran out of wood.

That's, the intent, that it is rising out of the ashes, agree it is goofy looking -- the designer's intent isn't very accessible to understand.

Pagan rituals...gotta love them. The Phoenix looks great the way it is....the rendering is supposed to look as though it is fighting its way out of the fire and ashes.

Can anything really be "in wack"?

It does look a little lopsided compared to previous years, but regardless, it's a fun event. Now, what was REALLY strange was the "performance artist" from last year...walking around on what looked like upside-down bowls, and lights and wires. I'm open-minded, but I didn't get that!

Yea I agree. What is it with that performance artist and his robot get up? Well apparently he will do it again so I guess we might be able to figure it out this year.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
