It's from Cakes by Darcy.
Dr. Krog gets one for me every year.
In 2008, he got there late, and the only one left had a witch hat on top.
And I was all, ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING?
But this one? It's perfect.
It's white, black, and red, just like my book.
And there is a book on top. Like I'm a real author.
Inside, it's even better.
Chocolate cake. Vanilla frosting. Just a touch of almond.
LOOOOOVE THIS CAKE.
And here's what I had for lunch.
A Vosges Leche chocolate skull
with pink Himalayan sea salt from my friend Heidi.
Birthdays aren't supposed to be healthy, right?
And speaking of beautiful things I want to lick...
OMG, this book.
It's part of the Penguin Threads series,
which are based on commissioned embroidery by artist Jillian Tamaki.
I won it in a Twitter contest from Penguin publicist
Gabrielle Gantz (@contextual_life on Twitter).
It's one of the most lush, beautiful paperbacks I've ever seen.
There's so much pretty today, friends!
That crazy Camping guy predicted rapture,
AND I AM HAVING SO MUCH RAPTURE.
