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.")

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!

Um...Bakerella's world takeover (I mean BOOK TOUR) is going amazingly.

Sweet...no, savory! I keep hearing great things about Chicago's Meatloaf Bakery. (thanks Suzette!)
