Baker's Dozen: A Batch of Sweet Links

Image courtesy mrsprinklesLet's get this weekend off to a sweet start, shall we? Here's a baker's dozen of sweet links to send you hurtling into sugar shock:

Are you in Vancouver? Are you near Vancouver? Can you get there by 11 am tomorrow? The Baker's Market is happening, and CS buddy Jenni will be showcasing her delicious baked goods!

Some like it hot: Watermelon Ghost Pepper candies! (Discovered via TastingTable)

Big Kahuna: The "Hawaiian" Pie is made with chocolate, macadamias, coconut, and rum (and as baker Wendy Sykes says, "It's as healthy as it sounds.")

Trick or Sweet: Did you know that Godiva makes fancy Halloween Treats?

In Cleveland, Jack Frost Donuts makes Candy Bar Donuts (yeast donut, filled with cream, covered with chocolate glaze, sprinkled with crumbled candy bar, and then topped with a nice dollop of mousse). Oh yes.(thank you Anne!)

Still excited: Barack Obama now owns some of my cards! Thanks to Jody from Cupcake Royale for making it happen!

Nanaimo Bars take London by storm (or so they hope!). I say, let Nanaimo Bars take over the world.

OMG: These flowers are edible! Sugar flowers by Wild Orchid Baking.

Um...Bakerella's world takeover (I mean BOOK TOUR) is going amazingly., savory! I keep hearing great things about Chicago's Meatloaf Bakery. (thanks Suzette!)

Sweet. Tart. Rich. Cranberry tart with hazelnut crust? Yes please. (via The Kitchn)

Seeking croissant perfection in NYC? Serious Eats has done the legwork for you.

Sweet memories: remember when a car crashed into my house and I ended up getting a great cookie recipe out of the deal?
