Artful Anniversary Cakes, Cupcakes and (dog) Cookies

When you turn 70, we think you should have your cake... and your cupcake... and still eat the dog cookies.

How lucky for the American Craft Council, the largest juried craft show in the West, that six stylish Bay Area bakeries, including two specializing in dog treats, agree.  They whipped up fantasy interpretations of selected show pieces in celebration of ACC's big anniversary.

This decorated decadence will be on display at the American Craft Council San Francisco Show  at Fort Mason Center from August 12 to 14 but dig in now with this sneak peak.
