Teaser Tuesday: CakeSpy

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. Click here to find a sweet stop near you.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.


  1. Oh, oh. I'm trying to cut down on sweets, but the cover does look good!
    Do lottery winners’ lives always end in tragedy? See : my Tuesday teaser

  2. Blogging about this book is not a tease -- it's torture!

  3. Haha! This is so true! I can barely transport a box of cupcakes to my car and into my house without running into problems. Word to the wise, when you put a box of cupcakes on your front passenger seat you may want to secure them somehow... another car might cut you off causing you to slam on your brakes and the cupcakes to fall onto the floor. Not fun. lol. Great teaser! If you get a chance, mine is here.

  4. Harvee: I enjoy reading about sweets even if I try not to eat them!

    Gwendolyn B.: True! It is a little over the top. It would be very fun for older kids or teenagers, I think.

    Julie: Oh no! That sounds like the voice of experience.

    Thanks for the links!

  5. I just added more information on Oleson's Portland tour stops this week.

  6. That teaser really struck me funny! I can't imagine trying to ship cupcakes. But what an ingenious fix.
