We had the BEST book party EVER this past Saturday! "Fairies and Fashion"...
I hadn't realized how badly I needed a party - and sometimes it is nice to be a celebrity for... about 3 hours. This party was to celebrate my new book (coloring book) "Tangled Fashionista" and Jen Carson's new fantasy novel, "Hapenny Magick". I did my usual, pre-party-panic... "What if no one comes? What if a TON of people come?" We had about 100 visitors over the 3 hours! (Thanks to everyone who came! I hope you had as much fun as we did!?)Deb Moore of The Foothills restaurant constructed the most AMAZING castle cake. Not only was it gorgeous and awe-inspiring, but it was delicious too. Each section was a different kind of cake (vanilla below, chocolate and pound cake above). I sampled every section after the party was over - they were all good. I was a "little" hyper for the rest of the evening!
Postscript... Postmortem.. alas, the castle hath toppled-eth. We tried to keep the front of the castle pristine for as long as possible. So cake was cut and served from the base, until we discovered that the castle part was CHOCOLATE! AHHH! So we cut and served the back of the castle. Near the end of the party I spied chunks of chocolate cake on the floor... and my eye moved up and up until... EEEK! The castle had fallen off!!! It was lying on top of the tiny fairy cakes. It was still delicious. In fact, it IS still delicious. We had some after dinner tonight as part of our Ostara celebration (yes, I know it is a day late!)
Postscript, Postscript - As for the books... you may remember that I wrote about Jen back in October of 2011 when she was doing a Kickstarter project to raise money for this book. If you want to know more about her and see all her links, take a look at that post. If you would like to buy her books, or mine, please consider buying them from one of our sites (Etsy is good!)... http://www.etsy.com/shop/jennifercarson for Jen's and www.bumblebat.com for mine. If you prefer to shop at your local bookstore, that is very cool! Or use Amazon... we don't mind as long as you read our books!! :-)
