When I got to the craft store on Friday afternoon there was one pan left, so I snatched it up immediately and then went to look at yarn. I have no plans for this yet, except for 1) red velvet cake and 2) possible incorporation of the brain jello mold.
Also a score–this came in the mail:
Last year some time I ran across a call for submissions for this book, so I sent in some photos. Two were accepted, so when the book arrived I immediately turned to the index to see where they were:
The first cupcakes were done for an Oscar party–they’re chocolate cupcakes (yes, devil’s food, har) dipped in chocolate, with piped on buttercream popcorn, decorated with movie candy. I learned from these cupcakes that Jujubes stick peoples’ teeth together and gummy bears are probably a better choice for this kind of thing. The second cupcakes are chocolate dipped in chocolate, with a ruff of cream cheese-marshmallow fluff, and a strawberry. They were awesome.
The book’s official release date in Nov. 1, but they were sent to contributors early to help market them (no pay for submissions, just the chance to buy the books for half price, so there’s a couple of Christmas presents done). Since I’m only responsible for .002% (PegMath: 2 pictures out of 1,000) of the content, I can’t really recommend its purchase on account of me, but if you see it in a bookstore you might could take a look.
