I was doing my morning blog check today when I came across some amazing news from Jessie Oleson aka CakeSpy - she's writing a book!
But enough about me, let's talk more about my book. It's gonna be called Seeking Sweetness: CakeSpy Presents Recipes for a Sugar-Filled Life. And well, in case you hadn't figured it out from the title, it's going to be full of recipes--featuring some of my more deliciously decadent, butter-and-sugar packed ones, as well as plenty witty repartee and tons of illustrations of cupcakes, cookies, pies (they're so hot right now) as well as magical creatures such as unicorns, bunnies, and maybe a robot or two for good measure.
CakeSpy is one of my favorite bloggers and I had the pleasure of meeting her at the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco a couple years ago. Since then she's opened a shop in Seattle and I'm looking forward to visiting it myself when I head North in April.
I already have a number of Cuppie items (her cute anthropomorphized cupcake character) and I even used her Wedding Cupcakes Notecard as the thank you notes for my wedding shower gifts.
I've also baked a number of CakeSpy's deliciously evil goodies, including the Cookie Cake Pie and Bacon Cinnamon Rolls.
So basically what I'm saying is, I'm a HUGE CakeSpy fan and I am so excited for her book which I will for sure by purchasing on pre-order.
2011 is a big year in terms of my favorite bloggers publishing books. Jenny Blake of Life After College has Life After College: The Complete Guide to Getting What You Want, Matt Logelin of matt, liz, and madeline has Two Kisses for Maddy, Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman has Black Heels to Tractor Wheels coming out next month, and now CakeSpy!
