Leftover Peeps S'more Ice Cream Pie, Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs, and Christmas Goose Trompe L'oeil Cake are just a few of the sugary genius creations of our own CakeSpy aka Jessie Oleson. She's a writer, illustrator, gallery owner, and cake anthropologist. Now instead of waiting for Monday to roll around for the latest CakeSpy masterpiece, you can get all of CakeSpy's best in one place, her newly released cookbook, CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life.
This book is brimming with the kind of stuff that makes Jessie's column so much fun: over-the-top sweets like Candy Salad and Cupcake Stuffed Cupcakes, and adorable illustrations of anthropomorphized treats, fluffy bunnies, and talking pineapples. Basically, it's everything we love about CakeSpy bound into a pint-sized pink package that's sure to inspire all sorts of baking adventures.
For the next two weeks we're going to be doing a little CakeSpy-ing ourselves by testing out some of Jessie's confections from the book, including the triple threat Cookie Cake Pie, a lunch-worthy Grilled Cheesecake sandwich, and Trompe L'oeil Bagels with Cream Cheese that should be reserved for only the most serious sweet lovers.
