    Finally, a summer collection we can truly drool over: Charm City Cakes (yes, the Charm City Cakes, of Ace of Cakes fame) has graced our desktops with their summer '12 line of wedding cakes, featuring some of the most over-the-top designs we've ever seen.

    The confections are inspired by different style eras and icons, such as Carmen Miranda and Frida Kahlo. Designs range from classic lace and femme florals to zebra prints and fringe, and we're confident that the phrase "too pretty to eat" has never been more fitting. These beauties make the perfect centerpiece for a wedding reception, or even a decadent birthday party. Or just feel free to start making up holidays — because we're pretty sure National R29 Appreciation Day would be way better with one of these cakes.

But, the prospect of each new place is always met with healthy amounts of excitement and anticipation, too. Thoughts of extravagant baking projects, Netflix binges on just-purchased couches, and read

The Broke Girl's Spring Shopping Guide

We heard your thoughts on The Broke Girl’s Guide To Dress Shopping. And, while we always appreciate smart, under-$100 buys and unexpected, mid-season sales — we get it. You want the real-deal, super-affordable finds. The secret, employee menu. The hidden-in-the-back-room merch. So, we found tons of gorgeous goods read
