Apples have been a symbol of love, fertility, and abundance since ancient Greek times, when the goddess of the Earth, Gaia gave her granddaughter Hera a golden apple tree as a gift at her wedding to Zeus. Wouldn't a spiced apple cake filled with caramel buttercream and drizzled with caramel, then topped with golden lady apples be dreamy for a fall wedding?
Another dreamy thing I'm excited about is A Crimson Kiss' very first reader's survey; I'd absolutely love your feedback to build a better, more beautiful Crimson Kiss, and by participating you can win a J.Crew e-gift card–perfect for your holiday shopping!
A winner will be announced next Friday morning, November 30th; to take the survey and be entered to win, head here! Happy Black Friday, everyone!
