I posted today’s first entry early, because I was up way before dawn getting ready for the trip. I was buzzing around the house, fretting, chewing my fingernails, trying to remember absolutely everything and wishing I could go to the airport 24 hours early.
Just before 8am, someone knocked on the door. It was a stranger bearing cake. Of course we let her in!
She didn’t stay a stranger for long. Meet Dawn, of MuchAdoAboutCake.com. She makes delicious custom cakes in Syracuse.
Uncle Penguin asked Dawn to bake a WINTERGIRLS cake for us. It was thoughtfully timed so that we could enjoy it for breakfast today AND tomorrow.
A bunch of our kids are coming home this weekend and we’ve promised to leave some for them.

It seems odd, yet oddly fitting, that there have already been two (beautiful) cakes for a book about anorexia.
Enjoy it. Enjoy it very much. :0)
Books, cake. My version of heaven. 🙂
What a gorgeous cake! I look forward to seeing you in Austin soon!
What a delicious way to start the day.
Well, the cake is lovely, but not QUITE as beautiful as the COPY OF WINTERGIRLS I won at Mary Hershey’s blog and that the UPS man JUST dropped off at my door! Can’t wait!
That’s truly lovely… and I’m sure it was as tasty as it was beautiful.
Enjoy the tour — alas, nowhere near me, but I look forward to twitter updates!
What a beautiful cake!
Lol, that’s awesome!
I love the detail down the spine of the cake, which showed in the photo you posted at Twitter. Dawn can “come over my house” any old time.
Very, very cool!
Gorgeous cake — and it’s CHOCOLATE!!
*licking computer screen*
Mmm… chocolate is a great surprise underneath that pretty frosting.
When I first read the title, I read it as “CAT FOR BREAKFAST!!!” and I was very confused. I was rather relieved to stand corrected.
Gorgeous cake, but not half as gorgeous as your book! I finished it a couple days ago and it left me breathless. Bravo!
Now that is a unique cake! haha.
See you at Vroman’s this weekend. (Shall we tell them to have cake?)
WOW!!!!! that cake looks good, chocolate with whitish icing is my favorite. *YUM*
Shouldn’t all surprise visitors come bearing cake or something equally yummy?
WINTERGIRLS at the B&N that’s officially in my town, both on the new release wall and in a full book dump. That said, it’s the third printing already, to which I say WTF? (I’m holding out to buy it at my not-quite-local indy.)
I have no idea why it’s in the 3rd printing. I am agok.
And big, big love to you for waiting to buy it at an indie!
I checked 8 copies, then gave up – they were all 3rd printing.
Very sweet. Congrats and good luck! I can barely read ’em as fast as you’re writing them. 🙂
oooh! Cake! oooh! Book! Fabulous! 🙂 See you soon! xo
The cake looks awesome! I like your Georgetown sweatshirt- it was the first thing I noticed about your photos, besides the lovely cake. I’m a freshman at Georgetown and I love it! I hope you had a great experience there.
that cake looks so good! and congrats on wintergirls being published today. i’m going to get it tomorrow after classes (unless my dad surprises me with it today) and i can’t wait to read it! good luck and have fun on the tour! i really wish i could be at one of the stops to see you, but oh well. i’ll be with you in spirit, and i’m really proud of you.
You ate the cake??? I would never be able to eat a cake that pretty. : )
Cake for breakfast, best way to start the day!
