While a slab of cheesecake might be a sinful indulgence, a teeny piece the size of a quarter -- well, God won't getcha too bad for that.

It's a thought that drives Frances Pons, baker and sole proprietor of Sugar Rush by Frances. She works in miniature -- producing small-sized versions of deluxe pastries, meticulously decorated.

In celebration of her company's first birthday, Pons has introduced some new retro desserts (above), including the Scarlett O'Hara (you'll recognize it as that old fave, the red velvet cake) and Pineapple Princess (a pineapple upside-down cake). Ginger Rogers is a spice-butter cake.

Her mini-pastries are available only by special order.

Bid on some cool prizes at the Alzheimer's Association fund-raiser at the Sheraton Saturday. Last year, I won a bid for lunch at Hoku's with Police Chief Lee Donahue and his wife, Lucy, and a tour of the police station. Fund-raisers Andrea "Legs" Kia and Daynin "Grappler" Dashefsky accompanied me. We later helped Donahue raise funds for his Kick Start Karate program to help at-risk youngsters. Maybe new chief Boise Correa will be on the block this year.

At a post-show party after the opening of "Cats" Tuesday, Jason Simon, who played Old Deuteronomy, said he saw Castle Performing Arts Center's production of "Guys and Dolls." Simon was so impressed with the performances of the high school students that he highly recommended me seeing it. Hopefully my plans will go smoothly and I can try out some dishes at "A Taste of Kailua" Sunday before going to the final performance of "Guys and Dolls."

I'm also going to check out the new restaurant in Ward Centre called E & O Trading Company. It opened on March 5 and looks pretty cool from the outside.
