I have a few new fabuLyss finds just for you! I’m looking forward to springing into spring!

Have you been to Flour Shop for the amazing explosion cake yet? If not, you must take a trip Downtown. These over-the-top confections ($150–$500) have six rainbow layers, cream cheese frosting, are decorated with rainbow nonpareils, and contain a sprinkle surprise in the center. In a word: fabuLyss! At this sweet shop — also home of the rainbow cake — you’ll find unicorns, pizza, cake, dreams, glitter, burgers, ice-cream, bubbles, smiles, cotton candy, donuts, sparkles, stuffed animals, and imagination. You are going to love these incredible cakes.

Flour Shop (177 Lafayette St. between Grand and Broome streets in SoHo, www.flourshop.com).

Looking for a new show to take in? Cirque du Soleil’s “Volta” opened Under the Big Top on March 29 at Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment. It tells a spellbinding story about the freedom to choose and the thrill of blazing your own trail. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of action sports, the show weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score.

I’m always on the hunt for new fabuLyss family restaurants, and I recently came across Johnny Utah’s in the heart of Rockefeller Center. Johnny Utah’s is home of New York City’s original mechanical bull. My boys love riding the bull! Serving up deLysscious southwestern cuisine, the restaurant is the perfect destination for family dinners, birthday celebrations, and game watching. It has redefined the urban cowboy experience.

No more standing in the rain at your child’s game. Protect yourself from all types of weather with the amazing Under the Weather Sports Pod™ Pop Up Tents. These colorful pods solve the problem of how to protect yourself from the outdoor elements that can affect your viewing pleasure. Whether it’s sports, outdoor events, or tailgating, the tents are revolutionizing the outdoor spectator experience.

Lightweight and easy to carry, the pods pop up and fold down in seconds and come in a circular bag which you can keep in your car or grab on the go for easy transport. Water and wind-proof, each pod is treated with a coating that helps prevent the harmful rays of the sun getting you, and it has transparent sides on all three sides so you can see everything. They even have a new MyPod connecting version so you can watch the game connected with friends and family. And if you really want to stand out from the crowd, you can customize your pod roof with lettering in your choice of colors. We love our SportsPods, and they are a huge hit on my son’s baseball team!

Available at www.undertheweatherpods.com.

Wishing a wonderful Easter and Passover to those that celebrate this month!
