Yes, you read that right. I am having my official book launch party at the West Elm Market here in Vancouver! I'll be there from 12 to 4pm on Saturday, May 14th - signing books, demonstrating some decorating techniques, and talking about cake. There will be samples, so make sure to be there!
I have a few other events lined up in Vancouver as well as Seattle over the next coming months. Be sure to check out my Events Page for more details. And please excuse my poor Photoshop flyer design skills - I swear my cake decorating skills are much stronger. But did you see that nifty box that outlines all the important details? Yeah, I made that, lol.
Speaking of West Elm, I developed a few herb-inpsired recipes for their blog. In addition to the Lemon Thyme Layer Cake I shared a couple weeks ago, I made these herbaceous Grapefruit Rosemary Spritzers! They are super refreshing and delicious - this coming from a girl that doesn't usually care for cocktails unless they are reallyy good. I finished them off with a pinch of my favorite Maldon sea salt. The salt plays off the slight bitterness of the fresh grapefruit juice - like summer in a glass! Head on over to From + Main, the West Elm blog for the recipe.
In honor of the book launch last week, I kindly asked a selection of bloggers to recreate a recipe from my book to share with their readers. An Online Book Launch, so to speak. I featured several of them last week, but here are a few more stunning cakes. Thank you everyone!!
Nik’s Yellow Birthday Cake with Fudge Frosting with sea salt flakes and the chocolate swirls of my dreams!!
Lily’s Lemon Zucchini Cake made with honey instead! Her post will make you giggle, too =)
Izy’s Lemon Earl Grey Cake with zucchini and candied lemons combines recipes from two different cakes into one. A must try!
