Hello Cupcake, What's New, Cupcake?, and the just-released Cupcakes, Cookies, & Pie, Oh My! And yes, we have signed copies available for sale. One is even decorated with a little bit o' frosting.
The event (which sold out quite quickly so congrats to the winners of our free ticket giveaway) was a benefit for Pablove, and included a cookbook auction, and tee shirts from Too Much Metal Fred. But of course the stars were the baking teams that came together to highlight the highs and lows of Wisconsin cultural history (I guess the lows would be Ed Gein, who yes, was commemorated with raspberries and phyllo dough. I shall say no more about that.)
Crows (licorice-flavored Dots).
The Powerpoint was great, but what is truly amazing are Richardson's stop-motion videos that turn recipes into animated cartoons. Some of these awesome videos will be available as an app in March. And someone has to investigate why the videos are active in the Kindle edition of the ebook, but not in the Google Books edition. Wah!
Perhaps the highlight of the day for me, despite really loving the hodag cupcake, was the young woman who came up to the desk and told us that Hello Cupcake was the reason she enrolled in culinary school.
So congrats to the winners. And once again, thanks to Sandy Ploy and her army of mint-ions, plus Discovery World, for a great event.
