            • Women’s Wednesday: Use It. But Not Because You Might Lose It

              Submitted by 303cycling on January 24th, 2018

                  Submitted by 303cycling on December 20th, 2017

                  By Becky Furuta Under the circumstances, the frosting-like scent of powdered sugar and vanilla was almost putrid. I felt my stomach lurch ever so slightly as I made my way toward a row of merengues and colorful French macarons, illuminated under the silky glass of a pastry case like fish swimming in an aquarium.
