Seeking Sweetness: CakeSpy Then and Now

Me, 1994I don't want to show off (yes I do), but I was kind of a child celebrity. As you can see from the article pictured above, my artwork and writing have captured the attention of the media since at least 1994.

Oddly enough (or perhaps not so odd at all), it seems that whenever I am fortunate enough to receive press coverage (online or in print!), it's still for the same reasons as that article from nearly 20 years ago: artwork and writing--and now, baked goods, too.

And you can totally tell my my laser-focus sitting at that typewriter that I was bound to be a published author--and as of October 2011 I am, with my newly-published book, CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life. Here's a convenient link to buy it at Powell's Books.

And to bring things full circle, why not check out this recent feature on me and my work on the awesome site Warning Sugary Goodness, which includes a sweet roundup of my illustrious career, and a fun video interview with Karen Tripp, former owner of Frosting Bake Shoppe.

As previously mentioned, you'll see that not much has changed about what I do, but the quality of my artwork has improved in the past 17 years, I think.

Have a totally sweet weekend!

The first line of the second paragraph "the icing on her cake" - what foresight!

Hee! I once had a book review published in Stone Soup when I was in 4th or 5th grade I think. Stone Soup was the bomb.

This is so awesome. You remind me of me, although I could never find stone soup on the shelves anywhere. It's such a cool idea for magazines for kids by kids. And I started with the typewriter too--it was actually fun!
