Hello! Welcome to Blue Cakes Blog, my little corner of the web.

I am an American actress currently living in Pasadena, CA. My husband, Drew (also an American), is a gravitational-wave physicist who recently accepted an offer to work as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Max Planck Society’s Albert Einstein Institute, which is located in Hannover, Germany. So… Drew and I and our little yorkie, Maxwell, are moving to Germany! Phew! I have a feeling my life is about to completely change.

This is the place where I will record my experiences, passions, random thoughts and adventures. Stick around for the journey and feel free to comment!



Our First Blue Cake

…Oh, and, in case you’re wondering why “Blue Cakes” are significant… Drew and I started the tradition of blue cake with our wedding cake, almost 6 years ago. We tend to be more of a traditional couple and we wanted just that for our big day- a wedding that was simple and elegant. At the same time, we wanted to do something that would break the mold a bit. So… we decided to dye our wedding cake blue on the inside (the outside was a very light ice blue). We didn’t tell anyone about it until we cut into the cake! It was a fun way to get people’s attention and spice things up. Every year on our anniversary we continue the tradition by baking and eating blue cake. So now you know. 🙂

    Dear Lisa,
    I spent the past 1 hour scrolling through your blog…beautiful. We live in South Pasadena (so close to your former home…) and we’ll move to Berlin next summer. I look forward to read more blogs about your relocation experience. Have a wonderful day.
