I may be on the West Coast on book tour, but all of you NYC folks should attend the Chocolate Show this weekend! Show links to follow…
At the Wonderland party in NYC we had Eleni’s minis. So pretty!
We had cupcakes from Sweet at Comicopia in Boston, MA! They had possibly the highest frosting I’ve seen on mini-cupcakes!
The weather stayed gorgeous for our stop in Portland, Maine where we had amazing cupcakes from Katie Made Bakery!
I just got back from a beautiful trip to New England. It was the perfect time to catch the foliage! My stop at cool vintage store, Revolution, in White River Junction, VT was a blast!
Kyotofu announces Fall flavors and free cupcakes on 10/30!
The folks at Norman Love were kind enough to send over a Holiday sampler and wow are these things gorgeous! I’ve admired and enjoyed Norman Love’s chocolates at food shows, but this was my first time seeing the full package and it is beautiful.
We just got back from an amazing trip to Toronto!

The Grand Tastings have different exhibitors each day, so I was glad I got the chance to go both days! Check out the photo parade for Day 2! (most photos on this post by Rie Tange)
This year’s Grand Tasting was fantastic and had loads of interesting treats and drinks to try. So without further ado, here is the photo parade featuring my faves! Olana’s Chef Albert DiMeglio had these Chocolate Pumpkin and Almond Tortelli with Mostarda Butter and…
A quick shot of the scene at Spice Market’s Culinary demo from Saturday at the NYCWAFF. Muscles Steamed with Lemongrass, Thai Basil, Dried Chili, and Coconut Juice!
My trusty camera-woman Janelle shot some footage of the festival with me this year. Click here for her footage of the Meatpacking Uncorked event!
I just got back from another epic SWEET party and have a load of photos to share. It was amazing as usual. THE event for any serious sweet tooth in NYC! I urge you to attend this event every year. (treats in above pic from Per Se & Bouchon Bakery)
The New York City Wine and Food festival is back! Last night I attended Meatpacking Uncorked and had a blast tasting wine, food, and checking out the street performers. Photo parade below!
The new comic I did about Double Crown is up! Click here to read it at The L Magazine!
In comparison to last year’s Atlantic Antic report this will be a much smaller post. Because I actually went and enjoyed the Antic with my family this time, so not enough time for quality blogging! I’ve got my priorities! Right? Anyway, one new thing this year was that Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies had [...]
This has been quite a weekend. Two book signings, the Chile Pepper Fiesta, and the Atlantic Antic. Somehow, I’ve managed to survive all of the fun I’ve been having ^_^ Anyway, here is a photo parade from Saturday’s Chile Pepper Fiesta at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Last night’s signing at GRNY was a blast! The staff there (especially the manager, Mark) was so helpful and nice. I have been a longtime fan of Giant Robot magazine, so signing at one of their shops was a big thrill for me!
One more fun thing going on this weekend Brooklyn’ own Atlantic Antic! Click here for details! Click here for the report I did last year!
I ordered cupcakes for my first NYC signing (at Rocketship in Brooklyn) from baked! They were SO good! I ordered a dozen “Sweet & Salty” and a dozen “Red Hook Red Hot”. Both were delicious and unique.
New York Daily News posted a great piece on Dolltopia by Patrick Montero. Check it out here!
Come out Friday and Saturday to check out my new book Dolltopia and eat some cupcakes!
This weekend a LOT is going on. One of the fun things I’ll be doing is signing special posters I made for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Chile Pepper Fiesta! It’s Saturday 10/3 @ Brooklyn Botanic Garden (1000 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY ). I’ll be at the chocolate chile pavilion. Click below to see the [...]
