Charlotte Cupcakes - Cake Makin' Sisters

So, when I was on my way to Granny Mac's Bake Shop last week, I noticed there was another bakery in the strip mall right next door: Cake Makin' Sisters. Why not stop in and check it out?

It's a new shop that opened up in the past few weeks.

Apparently the owners took over the shop from a friend who wasn't able to operate the store anymore. It used to be Sweet Bliss Cupcakery.

There was a nice selection of cupcakes to choose from -- nothing too innovative, but enough to give the customer a few choices.

The first thing I noticed when I looked at the cupcakes, however, was how small they were. I've seen cupcakes that small before, but being right next to Granny Mac's? I don't know how they're going to make a profit.

Competing with Granny Mac's is their problem though.

My task was picking out two cupcakes to eat. I settled on a strawberry cupcake and an oreo cupcake.

TV's Most Sustainable Stars - 1 more addition

When I compiled a list of some of TV's most sustainable stars, I forgot about Katey Sagal.

The cover of one of the recent issues of Entertainment Weekly made me realize that.

I still remember her as Peg Bundy, so I sometimes forget that she's done things beyond Married with Children.

After that show ended in 1997, she went on to be Hyde's mom on That 70's Show (for a few episodes anyway), lend her voice to the show Recess, and then landed the part as Jon Ritter's wife on 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. Once that show ended, she made reoccurring guest appearances on Boston Legal and Lost.

Watch Katey on Lost

Meanwhile, since 1999 she's been a voice actress on Futurama.

Since 2008 she's been part of the Sons of Anarchy cast.

Not bad. Not bad at all. You've done well, Peg Bundy.
