Anonymous asked: OMG YAY ARE YOU FINALLY BACK?!!! I LOVE YOUUUUU

You never really left. You just spent the last seven months trapped under a pie plate avalanche.

As ever, you’re flattered, but your heart belongs to a flirty little bear claw who made eyes at you across a cafe while you inhaled an inferior croissant.

flutterbybaking asked: This blog is literal perfection. All your own work?

This is you with sugar bigger than your head:

This is you writing novels like the productive human being you are:

If you click on this bit of text right here it takes you to your actual professional self, or, the person you pretend to be when you put on pants.

It’s also been a while since you’ve been here. You’re trying to remedy that by firing up the oven again. You may or may not have just cooked a dustbunny.

Photo 7 Oct 93 notes You believe that cake is for special occasions… like blinking.
(This cake collage is to celebrate… my book deal. Yes, I’ve managed to sell my novel to St. Martin’s Press. This is just a smattering of the cakes I’ve baked while working on it. Have a look at my process so far and what’s to come for The Book of Speculation over here. Thanks so much for laughing and ogling baked goods with me. -Erika)

Despite this year’s “back cakes” containment ring strategy, you still managed to eat the entirety of your grandmother’s birthday cake. Again.

(A note from the baker: This was in fact the cake I made for my mother’s birthday last year. It was a Black Magic cake—her favorite since childhood. She passed away this weekend. I’ll be on hiatus for a bit. Thank you for your patience and kindness.  —Erika)

(Hey all! Sadly my laptop fell victim to age and overuse. No, I did *not* put pie crust in the dvd drive, tempting as it was. I’m back and transferring files like a fiend. —Erika)
