I’m not sure why I always crave sweet things. Cakes, cookies, cupcakes—you name it, I want it. And if they’re decorated with cute designs and characters then it’s simply a plus. That’s why I find this bakery in California brilliant.
It seems like nowadays, macarons (which are associated with French culture, but were actually created by Italians) are as common as brownies or sugar cookies. Their popularity has shot up in recent years, making them easy to acquire by anyone anywhere. So an Irvine-based bakery in California ran with that notion and created something special.
Honey & Butter combined their macarons with the faces of all our favorite characters from TV, movies, and, of course, books! What were originally flavors like oreo, matcha, and sea-salted caramel turned into: Harry Potter, IT, Stranger Things, Peanuts, and countless other sugary designs! It’s actually a work of art when you really look at it.
They have Sailor Moon, so basically I need to go. Due to this bakery’s popularity, it will regularly advertise which time certain flavors and characters go on sale. “Our creatures are meticulously decorated by hand,” Honey & Butter states on their site. “We love the human element of making them.”
You could easily pre-order them on their site or just scroll through their confectionery goodness here!
Author and Peanuts creator Charles Schulz’s home in Sonoma, California has been victim to the devastating brush of wildfires in Northern California.
His son Monte Schulz tells LA Times that his stepmother, Charles’ widow Jean Schulz, luckily made it out of the home before the flames took over and destroyed it. Charles and Jean moved there in the 1970s and Jean has lived there until now. This is also the same place Charles passed away back in 2000.
Although Charles worked in a studio outside of the home, it still possessed memorabilia from his past work and his family that is now gone forever. Fortunately, The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa is the primary location for most of Schulz’s work, and it has not been affected by the wildfires. But this fact alone doesn’t exactly replace the loss felt by his family. “Obviously stuff from my dad and their life together, all gone,” Monte says.

The wildfire has devastated people living in Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, and other parts of Northern California. Towns are being evacuated, over 2,000 homes have been destroyed, and the death toll continues to rise. California is in a state of emergency.
Charles Schulz is a prominent figure in the Sonoma and Santa Rosa area. The Santa Rosa Airport was named The Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport and its logo is of Snoopy flying his infamous red doghouse. The Schulz family has lived in Sonoma for over thirty years.
