Books & Signings

I’ll start with the signings.

King of Prussia, PA. Short Hills, NJ and New York City, NY.

Three cities in three days…


… and full of fun.


… and meeting lots of great people.


This is Esther. … I love putting faces with the people that I’ve emailed with. She makes the cutest little wire whisk necklaces.

You must check them out.


… King of Prussia had lots of little cutie pies in the store.


Lots of them.




Including these charmers. So cute in their matching tees.


Even the Williams-Sonoma folks joined in on the fun. This is Brian and Mandy. Loved them.


Then in Short Hills, I met more wonderful people. These folks welcomed me with smiling faces.


And cute cupcakes. The lovely young lady in the pink scarf above made these. We may or may not have shared a cry.


This is Melanie. She’s a Pop Star of the Star Wars variety. Check em out.


Look at these two. Stylish. Both of them.


And these two. Smiling and having a great time, despite getting in a little car accident on the way to the signing.

So glad no one was hurt.


I love these photos. Trying to get everyone to look at the same camera at the same time is easier than it sounds.


Side wave.

Bye New Jersey.


Hello New York.

Again… everyone was so fun.


Including their sweetly painted fingernails.


Families came out together.


And young bakers did, too. This is Kaira. Another Pop Star.


And here’s Nora. If you remember seeing the Cupcake Kabobs all over the web… well, she started that.


Laughter all around.


And look – it’s Rachel from Cupcakes Take The Cake. I was so glad to finally meet her. If you love cupcakes and you don’t know about this site, or you’ve been under a rock, let me introduce you.

New York was a fantastic way to end the Book tour – or so I thought.

There will be one more recap and then that’s it.

I hear a bunch of you cheering because that finally means more baking … right?! YAY! YAY! YAY!

Anyway… Toronto is coming up this weekend. And it turns out I’ll be at two locations.

If you’re in Toronto, and can’t make the Williams-Sonoma signing on Saturday, I’ll also be at Teatro Verde at 4:30 pm on Friday. Hope to meet you guys.

And as usual… if you attended a signing and see your photo in one of the slideshows below, feel free to use it. Thanks again for making the tour so much fun.


Okay, okay … that was the signings.

Now for the books.
