Cake Cake Cake

The last couple of weeks was full of celebration!


Last Monday was my last day of training to be a nursing assistant. Well instead of training, my class and I just wanted to go straight to our picnic to eat sugary foods and drinks for a not so healthy breakfast! We ate muffins, animal crackers, wafers, Capri Sun, Tampico juice, apples w/ caramel dip and cake:




My instructor, Enid, picked out a cute little white cake with buttery cream frosting!










On Saturday night I went to my lovely friend's graduation party. It was journey to get her place (meaning getting lost along the way), I'm glad I made it on time! I loved the wonderful presentation of all the Filipino desserts, cookies, and cupcakes surrounding the cake. The Filipino desserts consisted of fruit salad on the very right, next to it are desserts made of sweet rice prepared in different ways! The three white ones are puto, which are steamed rice muffins, and sorry I can't remember the rest of the names of the other sweet rice dessert next to the puto!



This is the celebrant with some of her cake:




I know the cake is from Goldilocks Bakery. I didn't have to ask Michelle where she got it from because after the cake got all over her face, her intoxicated self caused her to keep saying along the lines of, "AH This was an $80 cake from Goldilocks!!" haha

Lastly, for Mother's Day, Bronsen made for my mom a moisty chocolate cake with strawberries inside. My mom ate it quite fast! I had to calm her down!

Kabuto

Eating at Kabuto was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi/Japanese food enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto!

We each ordered some à la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase, which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef!

Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:


















Last note: Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is there! AND it's important to make a reservation before coming in because Kabuto is a very …

Herbs & Rye

After driving pass by Herbs & Rye for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place.  They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900):

Here's an example of of some of the drinks:

I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them:


Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like flatbreads, pasta, and  they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time!  I only had the appetite to drink:

I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a "speakeasy feel".  They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation!

Dirt Dog

If you are a hot dog fiend, I highly suggest checking out Dirt Dog! They specialize in gourmet bacon-wrapped hot dogs.  They're originally from LA, recently opened shop here in Las Vegas and planning to open another location on The Strip:
