If you really want to see something horrifying, try shipping a cupcake. Trust me, it's not pretty.-- Cakespy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life by Jessie Oleson. Her clever solution is to bake the cupcakes in little jars, ship them, and frost them upon arrival. They also just look cute in the jars.
Oleson is the author of the irresistible CakeSpy blog and the book is chock full of recipes, photos, and Oleson's adorable illustrations.
Oleson is on an extensive book tour this fall. She will be in Portland this week: at Pix Patisserie (3901 N. Williams Ave.) on Thursday at 5:00 pm (more details here) and at Saint Cupcake on Saturday at 4:00 pm (more details here). Then on to the Bay Area, Boston, new York, and beyond.
