This week I got to attend Cheryl’s Buttercream Birthday Bonanza, a cake decorating contest held at the ICE. At the event, ICE students competed using Cheryl’s Buttercream frosting to make gorgeous cakes and cupcakes in the theme of Birthdays!

On a recent trip to Washington, DC, I made a visit to Baked and Wired, an excellent spot for sweets and coffee in the Georgetown neighborhood. As you may gather from the shop’s name (and the cupcake sign from the above photo) this shop isn’t your typical cutesy-pie bakery!
I wrote a piece on NYC’s newly opened Sprinkles cupcake bakery. Check it out here at Tree.com!
LA’s famed cupcake chain Sprinkles will open in NY May 13th. In the meantime their truck will be distributing free cupcakes throughout the city May 2nd-10th. Check the map above and their twitter feed for more info!

Here’s a quick shot from Heavenly Cupcake where we got to make a quick stop before leaving San Diego Comic Con. Also Darlene of My Burning Kitchen gave me some yummy Jer’s candy bars (based in the San Diego area), which both feature peanut butter! I just love chocolate and peanut butter together. The pretzel [...]

Hope you had a fun long weekend! I got to check out Parked at Bklyn Yard and tried Robicelli’s Chicken n’ Waffles cupcake! It’s a vanilla “waffle” cupcake with vanilla buttercream, topped with a chunk of buttermilk soaked fried chicken that’s been dunked in pure Vermont maple syrup. A daring combo indeed. Looking forward to [...]
On my trip to Toronto last weekend, I got to check out a few places and noticed Butter Tarts as a recurring theme. I’ve never seen them in NYC and was psyched to try something new!
I’m doing some illustrations of my Dolltopia tour sweets highlights! This one is from Cupcake Jones in Portland, OR. Great cupcake and the Gingerbread Cookie on top was really yummy too!
San Francisco! A great city with some great cupcakes! I ended up ordering from Sweet Ride and Mission Minis! Sweet Ride’s “Black & White” pictured above. Love the hearts!
Here’s my newest comic on Baked a Brooklyn fave! If you can’t make it to Red Hook you can get their goods from Royale Bakery in the Village or Tazza in Brooklyn Heights!
Last night I did a reading at the wonderful comic shop Floating World Comics and we got cupcakes from Cupcake Jones for the occasion. I LOVED the ginger bread ones and the Cherry Cheesecake ones were really nice too. The tiny gingerbread men were cute and tasted great!
Portland was amazing as usual. Gotta love a town that is so strong in the food scene AND the comics community! I did fun reading at In Other Words, an awesome feminist bookstore and we got cupcakes from Saint Cupcake.We got mini cupcakes in Malt Ball, Fat Elvis (peanut butter/banana/chocolate chip), and Chocolate with Cream [...]
New England and NYC were amazing! Now I’m on my West Coast tour! Hope to see you there, be ready to eat some cupcakes and bring your dolls! Remember, whoever brings the coolest made over doll wins a copy of Dolltopia!
I just got back from my lecture at Emily Carr University on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC. So fun! We got cupcakes from Coco Cake Cupcakes. Lyndsay does custom cupcakes to order and she matched the Dolltopia cover colors!
I’m having so much fun in Vancouver! The weather turned out to be sunny and gorgeous for most of the weekend and the foliage is so beautiful! I am definitely glad I did this tour in Autumn.
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!
We just got back from an amazing trip to Toronto!
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!
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.
Come out Friday and Saturday to check out my new book Dolltopia and eat some cupcakes!
The Dolltopia Cupcake Tour was kicked off this weekend at Small Press Expo in North Bethesda, Maryland! After researching I found only one nearby bakery that would deliver, which was a necessity at this tour stop. So Cake Love it was!
You may or may not already know that I have a new graphic novel coming out called Dolltopia. It’s a fun and quirky tale about dolls who are tired of being controlled by humans, so they start their own society, and you can read a preview here! It’s not exactly food related, BUT, my publisher, [...]
This being my second Fancy Food Show, I learned from last year and started from the lower floor where there were more sweets and less chance of being distracted by all the (seemingly thousands of) different types of cheeses and olives on the third floor. Now that’s what I call a real cheese cake!
Last night’s City Sweet Tooth first blogiversary party at Tekserve was so amazing! I’m still recovering, but I want to share photos from various friends and participants!

In addition to the Chocolate Show I attended Tastings NYC which was held in conjunction and in the same venue. An $80 Tastings NYC ticket would also get you in to the Chocolate Show. Here are a few of the sweeter offerings they had on display. Ruby Et Violette’s drinking chocolate. So good….
I attended the Atlantic Antic today. So fun! I love seeing all of the local restaurants and stores exhibiting and also listening to the live music. It’s a great chance to learn about local vendors (both sweet and savory) that I haven’t checked out yet. I brought my camera and got some good shots of [...]
More political sweets. Here are some lovely cupcakes from Eleni’s! I like their black and whites best (chocolate with white frosting).
