Today is a very sweet day, my friends: it marks the first time I've ever been referred to as a "Confectionery Art Ninja". I sincerely hope this is the first of many times I will be referred to in this way.
That Jessie Oleson is a woman of many talents—baker, writer, illustrator, businesswoman—is impressive. That this Seattle resident manages to make a full-time living by harnessing all those talents under an umbrella enterprise called CakeSpy is damned improbable.
...not only was he a pleasure to talk with during the interview, but he also gave me some great Minneapolis bakery tips, told me about a mural by another anthropomorphic foodie painter, and gave me the lowdown on Norske's Nook. Score!
There's a sweet q+a, and I even gave them a recipe from my upcoming book, CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life, for cookie dough-filled cinnamon rolls (oh yeah!).
Of course, if you want to read more about sweet-ninja ME, you can read the full interview here.
