Such horrible timing, this post. With the opening of SMT today, it would have been nice to have this post up a little earlier in case there are any blends that catch the eye.
I had to split this order up in two parts, this one is bakery chunks. In chunks, I ordered 34 bags.
This is 19 of the bakery bags. I took these photos in my hotel room last night in horrible lighting, I apologize. BUT! Julie over at the The Redolent Mermaid took some gorgeous photos of her SMT order--head over there and see what goodies arrived over at her house.
-2- sugar milk is as strong as they come but here, I'm glad it's taking a back seat. I recently tried sugar milk all by itself recently and it was a bit too sweet and milky. Praline pound cake is yummy.
-3- I thought maybe I'd like granny's pecan pie as much as pumpkin pecan waffles but sadly, I don't. There's a sharper spice note that comes out here and it's a touch nuttier.
-4- this is sweet on steroids. thank goodness for the toasted marshmallow or it might be too much.
-1- one of my favorites from this order. I love the strawberry here. it's almost a little more in the fruity category, instead of bakery but whatever, it's amazing. *listed*
-2- why do I feel ashamed for liking fruit loops? Like it's the unsophisticated blend that gets looked down upon. Me and fruit loops? We go together like Louis Vuitton and American Express. MFEO.
-3- lots of cinnamon and I"m assuming it's coming from the PPW. This is almost like a donut shop type scent. I like my PPW a bit creamier but this isn't bad at all.
-4- I'm pretty sure I borrowed this blend from Jacqui. this is a lovely strong pistachio. it really doesn't matter what comes before or after pistachio because what you get is pistachio. I like it though.
-1- Second order of orange chiffon cake / pink noel. this is one of the few times I like pink sugar with my bakery. One of my faves from SMT.
-2- my friend Lauren can't do bakery that is rich and buttery. She would throw this one at a Raider's fan. It's incredibly buttery and extra caramel-y.
-3- mmmm. I like this blend a lot better than the one above. less cinnamon more yummy.
-4- how much do I love SMT's strawberry jam? and their blueberry! Throw in some vanilla type bakery and you've got a winner.
-1- true bakery scent with easily recognizable zucchini and just a tint of spice.
-2- another highlight from this order. a great combination with all prominent notes co-mingling perfectly.
-3- a very sweet blend highlighting the strawberry jam.
- 4- not a great combination that I chose here - the lemon doesn't quite work with the VBF.
-1- I remember thinking this blend might be a little too much in the carnival sweets arena but this is another favorite from my order. Sometimes the apple can be too much in the concession stand type scents but this is perfect!
-2- again, the strawberry jam shines, but here, it's the richness in serendipity fudge and the creaminess in willow's cuppy cake that tone it down and make it a perfectly sweet bakery.
-3- I'm pretty sure this made it in my order because it is highly favorited. I keep giving coffee scents a try but I'm just not keen on them. This might be a bearable one, I'm hoping it will change my coffee aversion.
I must be completely inept at picture taking and post processing, which is odd because I used to do a ton of it when I was taking pictures for pay. This post is about 3 hours of bagging and unbagging, taking snaps, downloading, uploading, editing and writing. Which is all good, but I'm sitting here thinking that I'm only halfway done and out of time.
Today I pack up my bags, head over to the celebration for my friend's mom and drive back to San Diego. I made sure to sleep in so I wouldn't be tired on the 4 hour drive home. Audio books --how much do I love them!
SO! Did you order from Sniff My Tarts? They will be open one more time tonight at 7pm (eastern).
I placed a small order during the first opening:
Chunks one:Vanilla Marshmallow Smoothie two:Grandma's Kitchen three:Creamy Eggnog Mini Doughnuts one:Twigs-n Berries 1/2 Wax Sheet/ Sheet Cake - PLAIN - PLAIN - PLAIN one:Pink Sugar Chunks one:Marshmallow Noel two:Creamy Eggnog
Chunks one:Peggy's Blueberry Noel two:Lemon Bread three:Blueberry Cream Grubby Cake one:Christmas Splendor Popsicle one:Tuberose two:Pink Sugar three:Pink Sugar Grubby Cake one:Japanese Cherry Blossom Type*
SMT has one of my favorite Pink Sugars and I love it plain. I was tempted to go bigger with my order but I'm pretty sure I'm rollin' in SMT for a good year as it is.
There's still one more opening today though.........
